Explore the area with a local guide and make a special trip to Ponta da Ferraria, where thermal pools offer unique swimming chances.

Join your guide as they pick you up from your Ponta Delgada hotel, where you can hop in an off-road capable 4x4 and head out into the countryside, winding along dusty roads that lead to sweeping viewpoints. Hear about the island's geologic history and the eruption that occurred here more than 1500 years ago, and pass by the Neo-Gothic features of the city's historic parish before grabbing lunch at a locally loved restaurant. The restaurant has in general typical Azorean (similar to Mediterranean cuisine) food and several options between fish and meat, stew, grilled….

In the afternoon, head to rugged headlands and rocky shorelines of Ponta da Ferraria. Follow your guide to places where the island's geothermal forces bubble up inside tide-filled pools. Consider taking a dip in the steaming waters or simply snap photos of the crashing waves before you hop back in your ride and return to your hotel.
