Who knew that apart from the natural wonders of Sao Miguel Island, you will find treasures of cultural heritage as well? Cidade Velha, in Ribeira Grande, was the first European colony in the Azores Islands in the late 18th century.

We will take you to the most remote places on the planet, Nordeste, and to the little settlement of Povoacao, the first colony established by the explorers who discovered the Azores Islands and lauded the archipelago for its clear, sweet waters and mystical forest life. In Povoacao, we will have the rare chance of tasting the famous Fofas (fluffies) da Povoacao, delicious eclairs pastries locally made in the islands.

Be welcomed by flowers in the town of Nordeste, with gorgeous landscapes and viewpoints that will take your breath away. The most notable viewpoints are the Ponta do Sossego and Ponta da Madrugada, which overlook the coastline and the deep blue sea of the Azores. Thre you will enjoy a lunch at a traditional restaurant.

Admire the ancient water mills at Ribeira dos Caldeiroes, which has fed the town for decades with its rustic methods of manufacturing cereals. Finally we will arrive at the Goreana Tea Factory, the first of its kind in the country and known for sourcing the rarest, freshest tea local leaves to create truly special concoctions. Finally, admire the northern sea and landscapes as we take the north coast to return to your hotel in Ponta Delgada.
