Volcanic Caves Day Trip by Jeep

  • English English
  • 3.5 hours
  • Hotel pick up

Tour the interior of Terceira on board a 4x4 jeep and feel the speed while you discover the beauty of the island. Discover the natural heritage of the Azores: the Algar do Carvão and Gruta do Natal.

Itinerary

We'll pick you up from your hotel at the indicated time, and begin our route to the volcanic caves of Terceira on board a 4x4 jeep: the leafy forests and the characteristic fields of hydrangeas keeping you company on your way.

Cutting through the lesser travelled trails of Terceira we'll arrive at the Guilherme Moniz crater, 640 metres high. Here you can see the most important geological features on the island: the Algar do Carvão and Gruta do Natal. We'll tour these volcanic caves, (entry not included) exploring their interiors and the Azorian vegetation which flourishes inside including holly, moss and laurel.

As we get to know the history surrounding the formation of these caves, we'll admire the stalactites and cavities in the surface, even arriving at a hidden pond inside, adding a magical touch to proceedings.

On the return journey by jeep we'll take the island's main roads so you can enjoy the Terceira landscape, and after four hours immersed in nature, we'll head back to your hotel.
