Moments with happy cows
One of the very special moments on these tours is to find herds of dairy cows on the roads. They are used to grazing outdoors, and many of them graze on agricultural land along the regional roads, and therefore, farmers need to move them at two different times of the day.
The journey is made with one person in front to warn drivers of what they are going to encounter and another at the end of the herd, to ensure that no animals are lost. And we can guarantee that happy moments are more usual than rare.
The spectacularity of our roads
During the summer, especially between mid-July and early September, the roads are full of hydrangeas. It is beautiful to see these flowery paths. In fact, São Miguel has one of the most beautiful and flowery roads you can imagine. It is stunning how a simple route for cars can be so magnificent and colorful!
And throughout the year we can find large trees and basalt stone walls that divide the green pastures, it makes us remember patchwork blankets!
