The program that we have outlined for this day, leads us to discover the geological origin of Terceira island and the relationship of its people with the land. It is about learning how volcanoes shaped the island's landscape and the way of life of its people. We start by climbing mount Brazil, which, like the rest of the island, came from the depths of the sea to form one of the best views of the city of Angra and its bay to the east, and over the bay of Fanal, to the west. From here you can also see the magnificent history of this island, which will certainly be present in every nook and cranny of this Island. As we approach the north of Terceira, we reach the lava fields that the locals have shaped for the planting of vineyards. After visiting the bathing area of Biscoitos, and after lunch in this area of the island, we will take a short walk through the basalt walls that protect the vineyards. The visit to this part of the island is complete with the Wine Museum. On the way to Angra do Heroísmo, passing through the interior of the island: first, visit to Furna do Enxofre, to admire the phenomena of volcanism secondary to the surface, followed by a visit to the interior of the magnificent algar do Carvão. After this adventure, it is time to know the flavors and products of Terceira, on a visit to Quinta dos Azores. Return to the Hotel.
