Have you ever been to Ribeira dos Caldeirões?

Ribeira dos Caldeirões Natural Park is a protected area that stretches along the part of the water stream of Ribeira dos Caldeirões, in the parish of Achada, in the county of Nordeste, on the island of São Miguel. This natural park is located on the slopes of Serra da Tronqueira and occupies a part of the water stream of Ribeira do Guilherme, a riverside where the Ribeira do Gulherme Botanic garden is also situated.

In this natural park, you can observe an abundance of various Macaronesian flora, whereas Laurissilva is predominant, highlighted by the large-sized tree ferns. Furthermore, you can find massive Hortensia and large-sized cedars grow in abundance. This natural park, which follows the stream of the river, outstands due to the existence of the cascade that provides water to the part of the park. The fact that in its forests we can find the Azorean bullfinch, an endemic passerine bird that is associated with vegetation diversity, has led to the inclusion of the park in the Zona de Proteção Especial do Pico da Vara e Ribeira do Guilherme.

What People Are Saying

"I was a little apprehensive about going off road but what a beautiful way to see the country. Mario was fabulous! He kept away from the fog and tailored to our wants. Highly recommend!"
"Delfim and Telmo were great tour guides and even better companions. They knew the whole island, and all of the private ins and outs to see as much as possible. They took us to the best vantage points to see all of the popular sites, and even more secluded locations that most people wouldn’t get a chance to experience. Each day with them we were taken to all of the hidden gems, as well as restaurants and cafes throughout the whole island. We would highly recommend them, and will be utilizing them again when we return!!"
"Delfin was an amazing tour guide! He was so knowledgeable about the island, and took us to see some great places that we didn't manage to find on our own! He managed our time perfectly, we managed to see so many stunningly beautiful sights and he knew where to go at which time depending on the frequently changing weather/cloud patterns. We so much appreciated everything he did for us, so well worth it! I would recommend T4W to anyone! Also, his English is good and over all the customer service was great! Thank you so much for an amazing day! I hope we have a chance to come back soon!"
"First time visiting the Azores and such an amazing trip. We toured the entire island and saw the most breathtaking views and learned so much about the island and their way of life. Delfim and Telmo are top notch!"
"We are a family of five adults that visited Sao Miguel for the first time. The guided tour was hands down the best introduction possible to this beautiful island. Our tour guide, Telmo, was an enthusiastic, funny, and highly knowledgable leader of our expedition. He also spoke excellent English! We were able to go places and see things that we otherwise never would have. He gave us a truly VIP experience. We would recommend this tour company and Telmo to everyone visiting Sao Miguel!"
