Overview of your Ponta delgad... tour:

Join me on this tour to visit a very unique place in the world, the Furnas volcano. This tour offers you every sort of beautiful scene to be found in Nature: beach side, oceanic viewpoints, and landscapes of the Furnas Lake and the mountains. Besides this, you will have the chance to be surrounded by volcanic activity inside of a vulcano crater! Apart from that, you'll also get to experience what it's like to be inside of a tea factory with more than 100 years of history, that still functions the same way to this day, where you'll be able to taste our flavourful Azorean tea with a beautiful scenery at your sight. Departing from Ponta Delgada right to the north cost of the island where we'll visit an iconic beach and the city of Ribeira Grande, we'll end up reaching Furnas village, passing by various viewpoint and the tea factory along the way. At Furnas it would even be possible to have a lunch stop, and be surrounded by hot springs, different smells and sights that will spark all your senses.
