Terceira Island Whale Watching and Jeep Tour

1. Terceira Island Whale Watching and Jeep Tour

Observe magnificent whales in their natural habitat before exploring Terceira Island, either in a shared tour or with your own private group. This trip is made more comfortable by traveling in jeeps that are perfect for taking you off the beaten track so you can see the very best of what the island has to offer. This tour is ideal for those who want a bit of island exploration in the most radical way. Routes are taken along secondary roads, which are not part of usual tourist itineraries. They are narrow, beaten paths and used mostly by farmers - you'll get to see the real Terceira. The roads are lined either by blue hydrangeas (hortensia), large trees or rough walls of basaltic stone. They lead to breathtaking views and you should take the time to stop along the way, step out of the jeep and take a closer look at all the magical nature that surrounds you.

What people are saying about Terceira

Juan was great. First - I mis-scheduled our excursion and he worked with us to reschedule it. Luckily he did, because quite frankly this a must do if you want to really explore the island and experience some stellar views. Juan sets up the ride to have a little bit of everything. 4x4 - driving through town and through the forest. It was certainly a highlight of our trip. Do yourself a favor and check it out!

Ruben was a really enthusiastic, kind, patient local guide who showed us the really best and hidden treasures of the beautiful Terceira. Going through the woods with the Land Rover was fitting into a fairy tale. Great experience, truly recommended, 5+1 star :)

Everything as scheduled and an excellent opportunity to get to know Terceira better.

Fantastic experience. Great bikes and most importantly James was a true pleasure!!

The best thing to do in Terceira ! takes you through the woods too.
