Unspoiled wilderness

Hiking Tour Faial da Terra & Van Tour Nordeste

Sao Miguel island

To blend an adventurous expedition through wild trails with the subsequent relaxation of a van tour through the most beautiful paths of the island is our goal:

First, we will visit the surprises of this unique nature on foot, discovering a hidden settlement in the mountain and the portentous waterfall of Salto do Prego; after, we will witness with our bare eyes a harbor of old whalers, the colorful reeling of small boats in the pier going with the flow, and the silent beauty of Ponta do Sossego.

This is an experience that fills the human reservoirs of beauty and restores trust in the possibilities of life in our planet.

    La Experiencia

    You can combine the adventure of one of the most beautiful hikes in São Miguel Island with a comfortable van tour to Nordeste, all in one experience.

    Some people even say that Nordeste is like if it was another island, because of its great beauty. And many locals consider it the most beautiful part of the island.

    This is for you to decide. But we can guarantee that you will not be disappointed by the natural beauty there.

    • Let the adventure begin

      – After the check-in at our shop, or the pick-up in Ponta Delgada, let our adventure begin. Our guide will welcome you and lead you to one of our comfortable vehicles for a great experience.

    • East end

      – Once ready, we will leave from Ponta Delgada in the direction of Faial da Terra. It is here that we will start our circular trail Faial da Terra – Salto do Prego.

    • Sanguinho

      – On our hike, we will pass by a hidden village in the mountain, called Sanguinho. It has been abandoned by its inhabitant since the early 70s, in the search for better living conditions. But now, the houses are being rebuilt thanks to the undeniable charm of the village.

    • Salto do Prego

      – Next stop: Salto do Prego where you will find an impressive waterfall. Take your time to contemplate it. You will have the opportunity to go for a dip in the crystal clear waters.

      – We will also have a light meal before going back on the road.

    • Faial da Terra village

      – After this wonderful hike, we will stop in the center of Faial da Terra village. Surrounded by nature, between the ocean and the mountains, Faial da Terra is a pretty little village where tranquility is the keyword.

      – We will have the time to relax and enjoy the old whalers harbor before we continue for the second half of the day.

    • Ponta do Sossego

      – The road will take us to various viewpoints on the coast of Nordeste. Among them, we will visit Ponta do Sossego and Vista dos Barcos.

      – These landscapes are especially famous on Instagram. Indeed, the green high cliffs with flowers of every color create a beautiful scenery. Let’s explore a place that has been considered the most flower-rich region of all Europe.

    • Ribeira dos Caldeirões

      – Our last stop of the day will be in the Park of Ribeira dos Caldeirões, a nature park full of waterfalls.

      – The biggest waterfall is over 40 meters high and you will have time to contemplate it and absorb these nature’s vibrations.

    • Way back home

      – After some breathtaking views such as Vista do Rei viewpoint, we will take you back to Ponta Delgada.

    Preguntas más frecuentes

    Where is located Nordeste?

    In Portuguese, Nordeste means Northeast, so it is located on the northeastern side of São Miguel island. It is quite far from Ponta Delgada, about 50 minutes without stopping, but the long trip is totally worth it.
