Full description

Admire Terceira's top highlights on a bus tour that takes away the hassle of planning and deciding. Listen to your driver/guide's insightful commentary, learning about the significance and history of every stop on your route. Sit back and relax between several locations, watching the verdant landscape rush past.

Start your tour by visiting the lush peninsula of Monte Brasil — most of which is a natural reserve. See the long-extinct volcano looming above you before heading to the nearby colorful town of Angra do Heroísmo.

Marvel at the beauty and rich history of the Angra do Heroísmo — Terceira's capital and largest city, with its town center listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Next, head to the south-east coast of the island, seeing several charming churches, holy spirit chapels, and natural formations along the way. Then, stop at the high Serra do Cume viewpoint, where you'll see one of the most breathtaking views of Terceira Island known as The Patchwork Quilt. Surrounding the hill are rolling green hills and hundreds of patches of farmland, creating a patchwork quilt formation. Round off your visit with a stop at the city of Praia da Vitória, filled with sandy beaches and several stunning viewpoints. Known for its colorful architecture, this quaint town still has its old city walls and has a sandy beach alongside its marina.
