Arrives on Terceira Island - Angra do Heroísmo
This day will be free. You'll be transferred from the airport to the hotel where you're staying. We'll spend some time walking around the city and getting to know the members of the group. Angra do Heroísmo will be our starting point for this adventure.
A tour of Terceira
After breakfast, our guide picks us up at the hotel. It will be a day of many experiences. We began with a tasting of the famous cheese da vaca que ri and went on a 4×4 tour to Faja do Raminho. After this adventure, we head to the natural pools of the biscoitos where we stay for about an hour and then have lunch with a beautiful view of the beach and the sea. We continued along the island's beautiful viewpoints and ended the day with a visit to the Agualva waterfalls! Finally, we return to Angra do Heroísmo where we can have the rest of the day free to walk around or do any activity we like.
Land of the Brave
At around 9am, our guide meets us again. Today will be another day of sightseeing. We'll start at the Monte Brasil Nature Reserve and continue with a visit to the monument of the bull and the Cruz do Canário viewpoint. We'll still be able to visit Salga at the Battle of Salga, where we'll spend about an hour. Our lunch will be in Porto Martins, once again by the sea! Our afternoon will continue through the Serra do Cume, a place that will not leave you indifferent. We closed the day's activities with a visit to the Grutal do Algar do Carvão. We closed the day's activities with a visit to the Grutal do Algar do Carvão.
Connect with Nature Day
After breakfast, we'll have the guide again to take us on the adventure of the last day of this trip! Around 5 kilometres await us, in a mix of breathtaking landscapes. The route chosen will be the BLACK MYSTERIES TRAIL (PRC01 TER). The route offers a unique opportunity to explore the natural beauty and history of Terceira Island and allows us to get more in touch with history and volcanic nature. Certainly an adventure not to be forgotten. After the walk we'll have a picnic at the Falca Lagoon, and in the afternoon we'll go on another walking route inside the Caldeira da Serra de Santa Bárbara. At the end of the route, we'll return to our hotel to rest and enjoy more of Angra do Herorismo.
Today is our last day on the island and we'll take advantage of the free time to explore Angra do Herorismo a little more or do optional activities. There are no activities scheduled for this day, so you can enjoy your time at your leisure. At the agreed time, transfer to the airport for your flight home.

Does Triskelion Expeditions handle the flights?

We send you a quote with the price of the flights at the time and then you decide whether to buy with Triskelion, on your own or with another agency.
Are arrival and departure transfers included?
That’s right, transfers are included in the price of the trip.
There is one flight on the trip that is recommended for the group to arrive at the same time, so transfers are available according to the arrival time of this flight.

Where do I meet the leader?
The meeting with the leader takes place at the destination airport.
If I enrol alone, do I have to pay an individual supplement?
It is not compulsory, as we will group together those who sign up for a double room with a twin bed (where possible), by sex and order of registration, travellers who sign up for the trip alone.

If you want to stay in a single room, then you will have to pay the single supplement.
