Full description
For many years now, people have come from near and far to soak in the therapeutic hot springs of Furnas, a must do on many people's bucket list - this tour is designed to make sure you get that and so much more. This tour takes place at night when it is peaceful, and the air temperature is adequate for this kind of magical experience. After a pick up from your accommodation in Ponta del Gada, you will be taken to the iconic thermal pools, Poça da Beija. This experience will start at the end of the day until around midnight, be prepared for the best evening of your trip. Before visiting the thermal pools, you will visit a place where local cooks prepare the famous 'cozido' (stew). Your dinner will be truly memorable as you feast on a Portuguese stew cooked in pots, dipped into the floor as they cook for several hours in volcanic heat. In addition to this, you can admire the Caldeiras das Furnas, multiple boiling water and mud springs and mini-geysers. You can even try the mineral water or have a cup of local tea using the natural hot water.

    Excellent time spent in the company of Eleuterio! Someone who knows the island like no one else, kind, outgoing and with a lot of passion for his work and above all someone who knows how to put you at ease. The thermal baths are great and it allows you to relax and just enjoy the moment! The "Cozido" dish with drink / dessert / coffee included was just perfect !! To end the evening, a short walk in which we were still able to benefit from his knowledge as well as a magnificent cocktail while enjoying the thermal waters!

    WHAT A GREAT TIME!!! Due to COVID we were the first ones this year and we had the luxury to have Eleuterio for ourselves the whole night. Het told us many curiosities and history about the eiland and everything went smoothly. Very satisfying, informative, fun and incredible experience. We recommend it! Have fun. Greets Piu & Jens

    Excellente soirée grâce à l’excellent guide Euletorio qui nous a réservé de belles surprises. Détente dans les sources chaudes, délicieux dîner typique avec bon vin apporté par Euleterio, promenade nocturne dans les sources et une surprise ! À faire absolument L’agence Get your guide devrait cependant mettre à jour son site en prévenant que la prise en charge débute beaucoup plus tôt que prévu à cause des restrictions liées au Covid.
