Description

A tour to Fogo lake is definitely something you don’t want to miss during your holidays in the Azores. In our comfortable vans, it is even better to discover this beautiful part of São Miguel island. On this tour, you can see the beauty of the Nature Reserve Fogo and of the volcano’s caldera where you will have the opportunity to learn more about São Miguel’s volcanic activity.

Let’s hit the road after the pick-up in Ponta Delgada for this ultimate trip. We will begin by a visit to Cerâmica Vieira in Lagoa, founded in 1862, where you’ll discover the interesting creation process of the ceramic.

Then, we will go to the top of the mountain Serra da Água de Pau. Up there at Pico da Barrosa and Lagoa do Fogo viewpoint, you will discover some amazing views over the lake. You will also be able to admire the volcano’s crater as well as the island and the ocean. Fogo lake is definitely one of the most beautiful on the island, due to its pure nature and wild beauty. 

On the descent, we will drive to Caldeira Velha where you can take time to relax in a thermal pool with a waterfall, surrounded by endemic fauna and flora. The waterfall of Salto do Cabrito is awaiting, as well as the fumaroles of Caldeiras Ribeira Grande.

Then, we will have lunch in a local restaurant and continue our road trip to several viewpoints, such as Palheiro, and to Ribeira Grande, the second biggest city of São Miguel, displaying the long beach of Santa Barbara. The guide will tell you everything about the bunkers on the beach before dropping you off in Ponta Delgada.
