What Will You Do

  • Explore this protected area with our local nature guide and learn about the local fauna, flora and geology of this spectacular volcano.
  • Discover impressive spots with wonderful panoramas;
  • Suitable for most ages, families and friends;
  • It is recommended that you are in good physical shape as this tour includes, at times; walking on unstable terrain, muddy areas and graveled uphill and downhill slopes.


Situated in the heart of Sao Miguel is the youngest of the islands’ volcanoes, the Volcano of Aqua de Pau. Here you will hike through forests and follow streams reaching one of the most beautiful and untouched lakes in Portugal; Lagoa do Fogo aka Lake of Fire.  To do this, you must be properly dressed, since the climate in this volcanic region tends to change dramatically throughout the day. Walking in the mountains is totally different from walking at sea level – and we will be doing both! So, get ready for eventual pikes of humidity, sun, wind, downpours and, especially, lots of fun and adventure!
