Tour Details

Nature lovers, rejoice. This tour from Ponta Delgada will have you reaching for your camera every other minute. Explore the landscapes of Algarvia, an area known for its picturesque allure. You haven't seen beauty like this before. Reserve your spot today and embark on an unforgettable Portugal tour.

Your Ponta Delgada sightseeing tour will have you cutting through forests and fields rich with native flora. Expect to see vegetation big and small throughout this active adventure. Once you reach Graminhais, a grassy landscape sharing its name with the type of grass on it, you'll stop for some photo ops. From this vantage point, you can see the nearby town of Povoaca, the area's first village.

Eventually, you'll reach the highest point of the island: Pico da Vara, over 3,600 feet above sea level! Upon finishing up there, return to the meeting point along the same path you took. This time, however, there will be some stops off the path, including a visit to the oldest tea factory in the area. Try some local tea before resuming your journey back to Ponta Delgada. A picnic lunch is included on this tour. Book this Ponta Delgada shore excursion today for an incredible time in Portugal's natural environment.
