Due to the location of the Azorean archipelago, more than 300 American and European birds can be found here, making it interesting for birdwatchers of all nationalities.
More than 33 species of birds nest in São Miguel, many are endemic subspecies, but one of them, the Azorean Bullfinch, is an endemic specie and can therefore not be found anywhere else in the world.
To get the most out of your visit and to maximize your bird encounters we recommend that you join us on 4 day tours that take you through the different ecotypes of São Miguel. The program includes full day activities and picnic lunches. If you rather prefer a single day program, we offer as well a full day program that includes a visit to the interpretation center of Priôlo in Nordeste and a pic-nic lunch.
The Azorian archipelago is of volcanic origin and in many locations it is possible to detect traces of recent eruptions. The winding landscape is characteristic and unique and the volcanic activity have created a scenery covered by varied and dense vegetation.

Futurismo organizes walk tours accompanied by a geologist where different locations of geological interest can be visited.
Imagine being surrounded by endemic flora and green pastures while riding over the rim of a volcanic crater that has views over the ocean. Next, imagine pedaling into the heart of the crater and circling a lake while passing through freshwater streams. You will ride inland past active fumaroles and also close to the blue ocean coastline.
