Northeast Island Tour by Van

Pay a trip to some of the most remote parts of Sao Miguel Island on this scenic Portugal tour. As you leave the crowds behind, you'll come across picturesque villages, breathtaking viewpoints and delicious local cuisine. Book your Sao Miguel Island tour today for a memorable time in Portugal.

Your tour from Ponta Delgada begins along the southern coast, where you'll encounter your first major attraction: Povoacao Village. At this charming town, you'll get to stop and try local pastries before making your way to Northeast, a municipality that's the highest point on the entire island. From here, you'll get to observe the surrounding forests, peaks and sea; the two main viewpoints you'll visit are Ponta do Sossego and Ponta da Madrugada. By this time, you'll also get to sit down for a traditional Portuguese lunch at a local restaurant.

Expect to also stop at Ribeira dos Caldeiroes, a natural park known for its rich vegetation; it's an untouched paradise that you'll remember forever. On this tour, there's also a trip to one of the oldest tea factories on the island: Gorreana. You'll have the chance to try different local teas and discover your favorite. As you make your way back to Ponta Delgada, you'll ride along the northern coast and enjoy the calm of the northern sea in the background.
