Full description
Start your São Miguel sightseeing adventure with a convenient pick-up from your Ponta Delgado located hotel. Here your friendly and experienced guide will be waiting to pick you up. After a short meet and greet you will set-off to the North Shore where your fun begins.

After a short and scenic drive you will reach your destination at the North Shore, once here you will take an exclusive look at the Gorreana Tea Factory, the only tea plantation in all of Europe! From here your guide will take you on a private tour of the grounds of the factory, giving you a behind the scenes look into how tea is made. Once the tour is over, sit back and relax with a complimentary hot cup of tea - green or black, whichever you prefer!

Ribeira dos Caldeirões is your next stop, once you arrive you will be given time to explore the natural beauty of this unique park. Take a relaxing and scenic stroll just before lunch. Enjoy lunch at a local farming style restaurant and get the opportunity to taste some of the local delicacies. After lunch you and your guide will drive North East, en route you will stop at the village centre, a quaint location where you will get the chance to see the church of São Jorge.

Continue on to Ponta do Sossego and find out why the Portuguese translation for this secluded paradise is "edge of quietness". Marvel at the British influenced garden and take in the panoramic coastline.
