Sensations & emotions at Lagoa do Fogo

Jeep Tour to Lagoa do Fogo – Half day

Sao Miguel island

For those eager to temper their blood with adrenaline, we saved the jeep tour as it is the only way to reach unimaginable places!

The jeep will take you to the amazing Natural Reserve of Lagoa do Fogo, taking the south road in São Miguel. On top of a headland, you will be able to envisage both sides of the island – it is, literally, driving oneself to the outmost natural beauty!

The impressive view of Lagoa do Fogo, one of the most faithful specimens of what the islands were before a human footprint, depicts the tremendous power of the earthy nature that created the archipelago.

Still onboard, you will head to the luxuriant reserve where Caldeira Velha is located. Have a thermal bath in the heart of the forest and, after, enjoy the refreshing sight of the waterfall in Salto do Cabrito.

    This tour will take you to beautiful places through roads only used by local farmes thanks to our fierce jeep!

    You can see both North and South coast of the island from the top of Pico da Barrosa, with Ponta Delgada in the South and Ribeira Grande in the North.

    Relax in iron-rich naturally warm waters of Caldeira Velha and its beautiful little waterfall, to then see a bigger one: Salto do Cabrito.

      – This wonderful tour combines some off-the-beaten-track routes in both the highlands and flatlands of São Miguel island.
