This tour begins with a small peregrination and you will feel blessed with the views you’ll have at the Nossa Senhora Fátima chapel-tower, built as a steep tower, rather unique with simple facades. In São Vicente, take a deep breath and admire the terraces where the vines produce the fruit responsible for the nectar that throughout centuries have delighted admirers. Our guides will transport you back in time along the rural northeast coast passing at Ponta Delgada, Boaventura and São Jorge, where almost nothing changed in the past 50 years. It’s indescribable what you will feel on the off-road tracks that wind through the dense Laurissilva forest all along the way; the scents, the sounds and the views will leave you dazzled.

Visit the typical and genuine Santana Madeira houses and other relics from the past which today still work, like the water saw mill or the steam-powered rum factory in Porto da Cruz. This is a trip that surely you will want to repeat.
