Enhance your trip

  • Visit the town of Lagoa and OVGA - Volcanological and Geothermal Observatory of the Azores (entrance fee applies). Climb to the Lake of Fire, by mountain road between the color of vegetation and the beauty of the landscape.
  • Explore the west part of the island, the mystical Sete Cidades, a place filled with legends and myths. It deserves to be seen from the Vista do Rei Lookout; where one can see two twin lakes, the Green and the Blue, paired together by a bridge.
  • Visit several magic and amazing places of São Miguel, like the paradisiacal Furnas Valley, where volcanic activity is still visible and hot and cold mineral water springs abound. Proceed to lake of Furnas and start the walking tour towards the Caldeiras.
