We offer an indicative itinerary if you opt for São Miguel. In our opinion, it is preferable not to stay in Ponta Delgada all the time, because the journeys are long to the northeast.


Of course it is possible to sleep around the island; they are often more attractive than in the capital. Especially that the island is full of possibilities in rural tourism. If you are staying all week in Furnas, Nordeste or Caloura, you will need to reconsider these journeys, which mainly concern travelers who want to know the east island in west. If you are less pressured or less demanding, we advise you to focus on one region: that of Sete Cidades, which combines splendor of the lakes asleep and harmony of the sunbathing shores; Lagoa do Fogo, for its numerous walks; that of Furnas, for its tranquility and almost Sunday charm; and that of Nordeste, for his wild side, far from everything.
