Mysteries of Lagoa do Fogo
Jeep Tour to Lagoa do Fogo – Full daySao 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.
Mouthwatering local food included
Each island in the Azores has its regional delicacies. Try the delicious Azorean cuisine and let yourself be carried away by traditions!
We cover dirt paths never explored before. The jeep trip with an experienced guide behind the wheel involves routes outside the typical tourist itinerary.
Bathing in the Jurassic world
Deep inside the forest with many plants dating from the Cretaceous period, hold your breath and dive on the warm termal iron-rich waters!
How is ceramic made?
That is an interesting question we will answer with a guided visit to the ceramic factory.
Lagoa do Fogo is one of the most magnificent places here in São Miguel Island. This extinct crater was formed during an eruption in 1563.
