Faial, life on the island

About the tour

This full day tour takes about 7-8 hours and differs from the standard tourist tours. Whilst visiting most of the major points of interest, we will give you an insight on the everyday’s life on an island in the middle of the Atlantic. This tour is perfect for those who are interested in the culture of our island.
Faial, life on the island, takes you around the island, in the morning you will see the best beach, the impact of the earthquake of 1998, the traces of the period of whaling and of course the volcano of Capelinhos. At lunch time, we will have a rich picnic in one of the recreational parks of Faial. In the afternoon, you will visit a cheese factory and an organic banana plantation, both representing two important economic activities of Faial.
