Embracing Lagoa do Fogo natural world

Van Tour to Lagoa do Fogo – Half day

Sao Miguel island

With a customized service, attentive to the satisfaction and level of detail that it provides, we offer you this tour, a ride of companionship and shared enthusiasm.

In a van tour, the adventure goes hand-in-hand with rest, with the quietness of the places, and with the intrinsic quality of life present in moments of enjoyment, delight, and fulfillment – as a thermal bath in a forest.

Climbing the roads where centennial trees profile, as sentinels from the past, we will reach the mountain top, a viewpoint that unveils, before your eyes, the almost violent beauty of the lagoon alighted in the bottom of the crater.

In the hillside, and all around, there will be a blue curtain of the purest air only sliced by the calling of the seagulls and by the whisper of the wind in the treetops.

    • Pico da Barrosa

      – This adventure starts by checking in at our shop in Ponta Delgada or by picking you up and heading to Fogo volcano.

      – We will begin with Pico da Barrosa, from where you can see both South and north coasts of the island. Pico da Barrosa is a wonderful viewpoint you have to visit while in São Miguel.

      – It offers an astonishing view from where you can also have a first sight of the magical Fogo Volcano and Lake.

    • Lagoa do Fogo viewpoint

    • Caldeira Velha

      – In order to make this experience unforgettable, we will visit Caldeira Velha.

      – The volcanic hot springs are surrounded by green lush forests. Submerge yourself and relax in natural warm iron-rich waters. Also, discover the famous hot waterfall and listen to the sounds of nature. It is another absolute must-do in São Miguel Island. Don’t forget your swimsuit!
