Full description
In this tour you will have the opportunity to visit the central part of the island: Lagoa do Fogo (Fire Lake). Blue waters with changing hues surrounded by thick green foliage in a myriad of shades, a sandy beach way below and a small peninsula covered in trees create a dramatic setting. When you lift your sight line to the horizon you see a glimpse of the sea that frames the outline of the crater. Twisting down the mountain you soon come to Caldeira Velha, a thermal tropical delight. Heading down the path you are struck by the diverse and dense tropical plantings from which vibrant aromas thrill the senses. Bring your swimsuit and towel because a thermal waterfall cascades down into a natural pool surrounded by eye candy. The underground waters bubble to the surface and meet the waterfall overflow to create another smaller pool. Both pools have changing facilities. But you don't have to soak to savor this gift of nature. Then continue to Salto do Cabrito, a waterfall about 40 meters surrounded by large walls rocks and unique vegetation, power supply of the existing hydro power plants on the island. Pass a short passage through North City Ribeira Grande with a very picturesque city with an original garden build around the water stream and characteristic 17th and 18th century architecture of its buildings. See the Areal Santa Barbara, the largest beach of the north coast, hit by towering waves and very popular among surf lovers.

    Great Tour~

    Our tour was wonderful. Our driver took the time to explain everything and spoke English very well. Since there it was cloudy up in Fire Lake, he was able to change around the tour so that we could arrive a bit later when it wasn't as cloudy. Our driver also made two requested stops for us (pharmacy and pastry shop). There were six of us in a roomy van. I would highly recommend this company.
