Furnas Valley Jeep Exploration
To truly experience Furnas Valley - one of Portugal's most famous landscapes - you need to experience it via jeep. Exploring Furnas via such a versatile vehicle makes it easy to cover more ground and visit places otherwise inaccessible. For an exhaustive Portugal tour, look no further.
Your Furnas jeep tour starts in Ponta Delgada and takes you along the north coast. Eventually, you'll reach the central part of the island. Around this time, you'll make a stop at the area's famous tea plantation, Gorreana - the oldest one on Sao Miguel Island. On this tour, you can expect to ascend and descend to the valley, so make sure your camera is fully charged - you're going to need it for all the sights.
Aside from all the beautiful natural attractions, you'll get to witness the village locals at work. For instance, you will get to see firsthand how the volcanic activity in the valley is used to make a traditional Portuguese stew. After lunch at a local restaurant, you'll return to Ponta Delgada along the south coast to finish your tour - but not before a thermal bath and one last village visit.
