The island is marked in its central part by a crater called “Guilherme Moniz”, flooded by 2000-year-old lava from “Algar do Carvão”, and has the biggest concentration of three heather in the Azores. We can find the same scenario to the north, in “Biscoito da Ferraria” and “Pico Alto” and to the west, in “Serra de Santa Bárbara”, were dense forests of endemic vegetation retake us to the archipelago’s native flora, known as Laurisilva forest. The biggest area of this native flora in the Azores can be found in Terceira. The dominant green of the center of the island fades in its periphery, where human occupation e the colorful houses rule. Taking a jeep tour allows you to enjoy all of this in the most fun and comprehensive manner.
