Located in the eastern-most part of the island, Nordeste is considered to be the most beautiful region in the island and it has already been considered to be the most flower-rich region in Europe. Our first stop is at the viewpoint of Salto do Cavalo’s peak. This viewpoint is marked by astonishing and wide views over Povoacao, the first place to be settled on the island, and the coast that extends beyond Povoacao. We continue our trip to the Priolo (Azores Bullfinch) Environmental Center to visit the interactive exposition that fills the visitor with interesting knowledge about the area of Serra da Tronqueira, its fauna and flora and more specifically about the Priolo bird (Pyrrhula murina) which is endemic to Sao Miguel Island. Next we go to the center where we can also visit the Endemic Species Garden. Finally we go down to the town of Nordeste where we have lunch in a local restaurant. On the way back to Ponta Delgada we will stop at wonderful viewpoints over the coast and Povoacao.
