Local 4×4 Tours @ Ponta do Sol
Experience hosted by Luis
Hosted in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese
The experience begins downtown Ponta do Sol, near the beach and supermarket where you can buy your last snacks and drinks for the journey. The first hour we will go upstream Ponta do Sol river, that will take us to a "levada" walk, where we will find a hidden waterfall. In the second hour we go up the mountain to do the sheperd's tour and be delighted with wonderful landscapes, wildlife and pure Nature. The third hour will be spent on preparing traditional food and drinks for a gastronomic experience, in a old sheperds shelter. The last 3 hours of the tour will be spent mostly in the Laurisilva endemic forest, in the north side of the island, which will take you to to the heart of the island and it's origins. For the end of this experience, I will take you back to the south coast for an amazing sunset.
Other things to note
Be prepared for adventure and some adrenaline. I'm going to be telling some stories about these landscapes and ecological value, the way older generations built these roads and water channels.
