Tour Details

Explore the northern part of Sao Miguel Island on this fun van excursion. During this Ribeira Grande tour, you will have a chance to not only experience the landscapes on this side of the island but also appreciate the local customs and architecture. Book this Portugal tour for a unique glimpse into the Azores.

Your tour around Ribeira Grande starts with a trip to a ceramic factory, where you'll learn about pottery making from local experts. From there, you'll continue toward the peak Pico da Barrosa for a jaw-dropping view of Lagoa do Fogo, the famous crater lake; this area is a hub for volcanic activity and the lake is the result of centuries of it.

Afterward, expect to stop for a thermal bath and enjoy Caldeira Velha, a popular waterfall. All that exploring is sure to work up an appetite, so you will grab lunch at a local restaurant serving traditional Portuguese cuisine.

Once you're recharged, there's plenty more to do, including a scenic architecture walk in the city as well as a visit to a renowned liquor factory; at the latter, you'll get to sample several regional spirits before finally heading back to Ponta Delgada.
