Faial, the power of the earth

About the tour

The full day tour takes about 7-8 hours and shows you how volcanoes, earthquakes and the climate shaped Faial and its people. Faial, the power of the earth tour is optimal for those who are interested in how life on a volcanic island is.
The tour leads you along the southern coast from Horta to the volcano of Capelinhos. At lunch time, we will have a rich picnic in one of the recreational parks of Faial.
