Mysteries of Lagoa do Fogo

Jeep Tour to Lagoa do Fogo – Full day

Sao Miguel island

Out of the typical touristic routes, through snaking, side paths buried in dense vegetation that unveil continuous surprises…

In the tracks, the tall grass and the endemic plants release their acute scent to the sun, and the buzzing of the insects sometimes makes way through the sparse twitting of a bird.

Curious wild-rabbits peek at the curves of these trails while we head to the lagoon that was born from a volcano.

A light, golden dust breaks loose from the soils; the peaks and the waters release columns of blue mist; and the dew crystalizes, forming stained glasses over the flowers at the roadside.
