Explore the best of both worlds in this private experience and venture both by land and sea on a full day guided tour. Explore the beauty of the Lagoa do Fogo, Salto do Cabrito waterfall, Gorreana tea plantation and Ribeira Grande by land, and sail along the coast of Vila Franca do Campo, past beaches and the famous Islet of Vila Franca do Campo.

Be picked up from the comfort of your accommodation in the morning and board an air-conditioned van. Sit back and relax on the drive to Lagoa do Fogo, which features a beach recognized as one of the 7 Wonders of Portugal in 2012.

Visit the Salto do Cabrito Waterfall, a true hidden pearl of São Miguel, and admire this imposing waterfall of over 40 meters.
Relax and taste tea from the oldest plantation in Europe, while admiring the lush green layered crops, before heading to the Historic Center of Ribeira Grande.

Here, you will immerse yourself in the history of one of the oldest towns on the island, with the help of our certified guides. With their accompaniment, you will learn all about the formation of this town and its most important historical figures and landmarks.

The adventure doesn’t end here, as after lunch we take your experience to the next level and take you on a sailboat ride along the coast of Vila Franca do Campo, visiting several beaches, including Praia do Pedreiro.

Visit the famous Ilhéu de Vila Franca do Campo, a paradisiacal and world-renowned place, where you will have the opportunity to go snorkeling in its rich waters with the most varied marine species.

Return to Vila Franca do Campo Marina and be picked up again by our guides, to return to your accommodation.
