From the harbour we leave behind the dry side of the island to the place where the island was formed, the “Cova Crater”, where nowadays farmers cultivate their fields. After a photo stop, we can enjoy impressions of rural life along the former trading route. With various photo stops, we will admire spectacular views into different valleys and formations of volcanic mountains. Never leave St.Antao without having tasted the pride of locals, the production of the local liqueur “ Groque” which we will hear about and taste in traditional distillery. The way along the breathtaking cast will lead us back to the cruise.
