A perfect start for a true Azores local experience. “Azores in Depth” will take you to some of the most iconic views in Terceira Island, while getting to know some of our history and atmosphere, through storytelling and conversation with our young local guides.
The day starts with a welcoming pack at the pickup point. After that, you can walk around the city of Praia da Vitória, getting to know the locals and relaxing at a local “café” or by the beach. Before lunch, we departure to “Serra do Cume”, beholding the unique sight of the “Manta de Retalhos”.
Lunch is a treat! A themed picnic at “Lagoa da Falca”, made of traditional snacks, drinks and goodies that are part of the very popular street bullfights (Azorian sausage, cheese, sweet bread, blood sausage, whine…). After lunch, you get the chance to enter the only visitable volcano in the world, Algar do Carvão, an obligatory stop in Terceira Island.
During the afternoon, you’ll get to know the biggest city in the island, Angra do Heroísmo. Here you can shop, enter museums, attend cultural activities or even go for a swim at the nearby beach.
The tour ends at the starting point, where our young guides will be able to say goodbye and advise you to some more activities and things to do during your stay.
