Indulge in a moderately active, half-day guided excursion via motor coach to see the highlights of Sao Miguel. Enjoy a scenic drive past small picturesque villages and farmhouses built of undecorated lava. Visit Antonio Borges Botanical Gardens, the largest municipal garden on the island. Stroll the grounds which feature magical fern gullies, grottos with fantasy bridges, and exotic semi-tropical flora from all over the world. Travel to a volcanic rim to take in breathtaking vistas of Crater Lakes, two lakes (one green and one blue) that inhabit an extinct volcanos caldera. According to legend, this caldera was once the site of the legendary Sete Cidadas (Seven Cities), utopian cities settled in the early eighth century. Tour a pineapple greenhouse to see first-hand how this luscious fruit is cultivated and marketed. Peruse the greenhouse gift shop for delicious pineapples, tasty liqueurs, and local souvenirs available for purchase.
