What you'll do

A member of the team of Pure Azores company (an expert in history, nature and culture of Azores) will meet you at your accommodation at 09:00 am.

Following pick-up, start the drive to Furnas. Enjoy beautiful scenery along the southern coast of the island until you get to the historical town of Vila Franca do Campo. Here, reach a secluded chapel in the mountains, Senhora da Paz, to enjoy a spectacular view of the town and small island before continuing to Furnas.

In Furnas, walk along geothermal fields and observe smoking volcanoes (possible to swim in thermal pools for extra fee). Watch as your lunch, the famous local cozido, is pulled from the cooking holes in the volcanic soil. In the afternoon, get to the top of the volcanic crater at the viewpoint of Pico do Ferro, which offers views of Furnas and its lake.

Next, head to the northeastern side of the island to see the coast of high cliffs and waterfall of Ribeira dos Caldeirões. Make your way back to Ponta Delgada along the north coast of the island with a final stop at the breathtaking lookout of Santa Iria.

The program is a perfect introduction to the Azores, with a great mix of mountain views, lakes, coastal lookouts and insights into culture and history.

Book together with São Miguel West tour, to guarantee seeing the absolute best of São Miguel in just 2 days!

This tour with Felipe was one of the best I did in my life. And I had a lot... I had an extremely short stay under the covid restrictions - 2,5 days. Just imagine it: Pure Azores arranged everything for me. They arrived two hours earlier to be on time before the curfew; Felipe managed to switch the oprions on the spot depending on the weather and my preferences; on the second leg of the tour (and they have tour to the Western part of the island, too, which I combined) Felipe gave me a lift, and on concluding the excursion I found myself directly at the airport! Can you imagine? Impeccable. p.s. The excursion was in Portuguese and having MLitt I can definitely say he has a way of expression of a writer, no less. Impeccable, interesting speech. He is so interested in tourism and his birthplace that he makes his own investigations, can you imagine!!!

Fiz, em dois dias seguidos, as experiências este e oeste da ilha de São Miguel. O Filipe foi um guia fantástico. Natural da ilha, transmite uma paixão por aquilo que faz. Recomendo vivamente ambas as experiências principalmente se se quiser ver o máximo possível num curto espaço de tempo!

A tour where you get to see a lot of spots in a very short amount of time. The guide has a lot of knowledge about the places and the island itself, so you'll definitely learn a lot of new things. Some of the places are very popular attractions, while others are not that well-known to someone who doesn't live here, so it's a very good balance of things. Beyond that, the host was very careful to attend to my personal interests, even offering to change the initial plan and customize it to my liking. Highly recommend tour. A little note for future guests: leave the thermal baths for a different day, as you'll only have less than an hour to swim in them during this particular tour. Pick the botanical garden instead.

Reservei 2 excursões de dia inteiro com a Pure Azores, a empresa do Miguel. Juntos, eles deram uma visão completa da bela ilha. O Filipe foi condutor e guia e tem um enorme stock de histórias e informações que partilha com entusiasmo com os clientes. Os almoços de alta qualidade foram incluídos na excursão, e havia informações claras com antecedência se taxas de entrada adicionais serem pagas. É bom que os viajantes individuais façam as excursões em um pequeno grupo (máximo 5 devido às medidas da Corona). Mesmo com a excursão para a qual não foi possível o serviço de coleta, ela ainda me foi oferecida, muito amigável ao cliente! Eu definitivamente sinto que já vi todos os lugares importantes desta bela ilha e gostei muito!
