Full description
Travel from Ponta Delgada to one of Sao Miguel’s northern coast’s highlights: The Ribeira dos Caldeirões natural park, where waterfalls and windmills nestle amongst the lush vegetation. From here, you’ll continue on to Nordeste village, known for its beautiful gardens and well-preserved streets. From here you’ll travel along the North-East side of the island, taking in the views over colorful gardens and the sea from Ponta do Arnel, Ponta do Sossego and Ponta da Madrugada.
Your next stop will be Povoação Village, situated in the most South-Eastern part of the island. Povoação means settlement in Portuguese, and was where the first Portuguese navigators arrived on the island. Here you’ll have lunch in a local restaurant, before travelling along the Alameda de Plátanos Visconde Botelho, a large avenue surrounded by Plátanus trees. Off-roading over streams, you’ll drive to Salto do Cavolo to the Graminhais plateau for views of both Furnas and Povoação villages.
From here you’ll return to Ponta Delgada along the North coast of the island.
