Full description
Explore the impressive landscapes and amazing panoramas on a hiking trip to São Miguel. Bathe in the natural pools in the stunning Lagoon of Lagoa do Fogo. Start your trail on a short dirt road, from where you will reach a small stream (about 2 km), reaching another relatively more open area, with several springs and wide declivities, that will lead you to Lagoa do Fogo. Bathe in the Natural Pools of Lagoa / Caloura, in the cozy Thermal Baths of Caldeira Velha, or in the Grandiose Waterfall of Salto do Cabrito. Get stunning panoramic views of Lago do Fogo (on one side) and the north coast of the island of Sao Miguel (on the other) while traveling along “Cumeeira Norte”. Pass through several small streams surrounded by incredibly green and untouched forests, before reaching the characteristic pumice-stone beach of the lagoon. Enjoy a pleasant picnic lunch of regional products. Return to the starting point while enjoying another perspective of the South Coast and the Atlantic Ocean. Visit the Bathing Zone of Caloura, or Agua D’Alto Beach, where you can practice snorkeling.

    It was an amazing hike and tour of Lagoa del Fogo!! Marica was wonderful ! Super easy going and cheerful. She took us up to the lake where we had the sandwiches they prepared for us and even a gluten-free option for my daughter. The hike is 3 hours going up and 1 hour going down. You need hiking shoes. Intermediary level. Great experience !!
