Set forth on an active, half-day guided island exploration via motor coach to Ribeira Grande, the island's oldest town, located on a volcanic plateau above the sea. Explore the narrow, cobbled lanes which feature Portuguese-influenced architecture dating back to the 16th century. Peruse a liqueur factory for the opportunity to purchase local liqueurs and souvenirs. Enjoy a stunning photo stop at Pica Da Barrosa overlook to marvel at Fire Lake, a mystical blue lake cloaked in swirling mists in the crater of an extinct volcano. Tour one of the islands pineapple greenhouses to see first-hand how they are used to cultivate and market Sao Miguel’s intensely flavored pineapples, a major island crop that thrives in the rich volcanic soil of the area. Visit the greenhouse gift shop where delicious pineapples, tasty liqueurs and local souvenirs are available for purchase.
