Venture Beyond Lagoa do Fogo

Lagoa do Fogo Trail

Sao Miguel island

The authenticity of this place leans back to the summits, runs down through the slopes and lays down in the deepest of the waters, over the crater, as a ballast in our intimate memories.

A spell of colors, scents, and humidity is cast over our bodies, invades our memories and imprisons our hearts.

We will descend to the border of the lake through wild and vibrant trails; the small beach, asleep in the solitude of the silence and of the birds’ wings, is composed of light-sand and pumice.

Ascending, one cannot avoid looking back several times to discover the part of our spirit that was, forever, left as a hostage of the games of light and shade that cover the scenery.

    Of all of our half-day tours, this is the one you will not want to miss.

    Many people stay up at the viewpoint to see the lake, but we can assure you that it is well worth it to go down close to the lake.

    Lagoa do Fogo seems even bigger when you are on the rim of the lake.

      – After the check-in at our shop, or the pick-up in Ponta Delgada, let our adventure begin. Our guide will welcome you and lead you to one of our comfortable vehicles for a great experience.

    • Down to the volcano lake

      – After a nice time on the road, we will stop at Lagoa do Fogo viewpoint, where you will start the hike to go down to the margin of the lake, following a dirt path.

      – Once we are at the bottom, we can walk along the beach made of peculiar white sand of pumice stone.

      – We will spend some time down by the lake and our guide will tell you everything about this mysterious place, including the vegetation and conservation projects of the famous lake, as well as its importance.

    • Back on the rim of the crater

      – On the way back up, we will take the same trail, having the wonderful lake at our back. The whole walking trip is approximately 3km long (2 miles).

    • Way back home
