About
The tour takes us to discover the most geographically rugged and remote area of São Miguel Island. Following by the southern coast, we'll arrive to the village of Povoação, where we will stop to taste the famous "Fofas da Povoação" (local pastry). Then, our tour continues to the most flowery municipality of São Miguel Island, Nordeste. We will have the opportunity to enjoy the landscapes led by viewpoints of Ponta do Sossego and Ponta da Madrugada overlooking the coast of the villages. We will admire the ancient water mills of the Ribeira dos Caldeirões Park, where for decades the cereals of the surrounding parishes where grinded. The tour also includes passage in Gorreana Tea factory, one of the few existing in Europe and the oldest of our island, with a taste of the different teas produced there. The return to Ponta Delgada is made by north Coast, from which one can admire the way the sea and the winds of the North quadrant shaped the northern hillsides.

Infelizmente a experiência foi cancelada...PF. deviam adaptar a vossa avaliação aos tempos do Covid - 19, criando um item para os casos de cancelamento na classificação. Esta não se realizou, penso que por falta de inscrições, ou pq o espaço não está aberto ao público, como acontece em vários casos, o que neste contexto há que compreender...

Bom dia Srª Maria, Muito obrigado pelo tempo que investiu em partilhar o seu contacto com a Picos de Aventura. Efectivamente são tempos que obrigam a ter uma gestão mais dinâmica das nossas actividades, e apesar das alternativas que lhe apresentamos, lamentamos que não tenha havido a oportunidade de realizar uma actividade com a Picos de Aventura. Cá estaremos no futuro para a receber, e para lhe proporcionar uma experiência que certamente irá enriquecer a sua próxima visita à Ilha de São Miguel ou Terceira. Muito obrigado!
