The best of Faial in one day

Van Tour around Faial Island – Full day

Faial island

The blooming of the hydrangeas dresses the island in a blueish veil and impregnates the air with a fresh odor of novelty.

The immense Caldeira crater, at the bottom of its green massifs, the silent respect that the remains of the Capelinhos’ volcano imposes upon us, and the sunny marina of Horta filled with colorful boats and walls that are an open-sky art gallery – all of these places transport us to a dual dimension of time, connecting the past and the future in a single moment in our existence.

    La Experiencia

    Capelinhos volcano on Faial island is a milestone in volcanology recognized all around the world!

    It is undoubtedly a must-visit place, not only because of the absolute sweeping landscape but also because of the cultural and scientific significance of its Information Center.

    Take a comfortable van tour and discover the main attractions of Faial in a safe and carefree way!

    What do we need more on vacation? To savor regional delicacies, of course! And tastings of Faial specialties are included.

    • Madalena-Horta

      – After a ferry trip of about 30 minutes from Madalena, here we are in the city of Horta.

    • Caldeira

      – Caldeira forms a nature reserve incredibly rich in the endemic flora of the Azores. The giant crater is for sure one of the island’s major natural attractions. It rises up to 1,043m (3,422ft) from the sea level at Cabeço Gordo, the island’s highest point, with a crater diameter of about 2km.

      – Its last eruption happened only a little bit more than 1,000 years ago. It covered more than 70% of the island with a pumice stone.

    • Capelinhos volcano

      – Capelinhos is the youngest volcano of the Azores, formed only 60 years ago. It is still possible to wander through the “lunar” landscape made of ashes.

    • Lunch at a Local Restaurant

      – Experience some of the most delicious traditional dishes the Azores has to offer. We will have lunch at one of the local restaurants on the island.

    • Former whaling station

      – Let’s learn more about the old whaling traditions in the Azores and witness its importance for locals.

    • Local cheese factory

      – Taste the delicious cheese of Faial before taking the ferry back to Pico.
