    Benefit from pick-up at your accommodation, or other location in Ponta Delgada on request, and then head to the active Furnas volcano to unwind at the hot springs of Poça da Dona Beija.  Enjoy a relaxing thermal bath as you marvel at the volcanic landscape and see the steam that comes from the ground to create a mysterious atmosphere. Then, take part in a typical tea or coffee making ritual using the natural hot spring before you make your way back to your accommodation.

    Pick up on time by our great and enthusiastic tour guide. He told us about the tour and gave options on route to Furnas to show us more of the island we had not yet seen. The waiting line for the baths are long during corona but it was worth it!! The baths are amazing at night where the air is a bit cooler. It was one of the highlights of our trip

What people are saying about Poça da Dona Beija

We really enjoyed this family friendly, interesting, and well worth tour. 6 stars would be an appropriate rating. Miguel has been an awsome, knowledgeable, attentive, flexible, professional and very pleasant guide. He went above the call of duty and included a few extra stops/activities that our whole family truly appreciated. The place is a wonder of nature, lunch was a delicious local recipe cozido in an informal restaurant, in which our small daughter felt really comfortable. 100% recommendable! Olga, Alex and Luna

Very friendly guide and picked up at the hotel on time! Fred really gave us a super day!! Got a lot of explanation. Seen and visited more than foreseen everywhere and also enough time to visit everything. Day lasted a little longer than expected cozido was super tasty and a lot! Everything went well!!!

Antionio was really fun and looked after us 24/7. Nevertheless, we expected something completely different. You have to be aware that like everyone else, you have to queue up in front of the bathroom. Description should be adapted.

Great day trip. We saw a lot but never felt rushed.
