Your tour begins with hotel pickup in the morning, where you board a comfortable 9-seater van, destined for the east side of São Miguel Island. Discover Nossa Senhora da Paz, a secluded chapel set high in the mountains surrounding Vila Franca do Campo town. Arrive in Furnas, a town built entirely inside a volcano caldera, home to volcanic springs, gas vents, and thermal pools. Take the opportunity to relax in the delightful thermal pools of Furnas town (optional, own expense) and revitalize with a "cozido" stew, cooked in pots buried within the thermal grounds. Admire some of the island's best panoramic views of Furnas Lake from an elevated viewpoint. After a stop at the stunning Ribeira dos Caldeirões waterfall in the natural park, take in the coastal views from a high cliff. Your tour concludes with hotel drop-off.
