4 x 4 Safaris
4 x 4 safaris help the visitor to see the islands from a different perspective and with plenty of adventure.

Half and full-day trips are available taking in the great lakes, thermal springs and waterfalls. You can also swim in a thermal lake set in verdant botanical gardens.
The Azores Archipelago has volcanic origins and is considered by many to have exceptional landscape due to this influence. Recent eruptions are visible and can be visited. The volcanic origins of the islands created mountains and valleys covered by a luxurious and varied vegetation, lakes in ancient volcano craters, hot water springs, thermal hot-water fountains and cascades, stupendous peaks contrasting with cultivated fields. We offer organized trips to several geological interest spots.
