HIKING • Lagoa do Fogo – In the area of “Lagos”, we will start the trail on a dirt road that will get considerably steeper for the first 3km, at which point we will meet an irrigation channel. We will wander along an easy path through the forest. Soon, you will find yourself hiking inside the crater, with its massive walls of greenery all around you. Reaching the shores of this famous lake, we will take a break and enjoy our picnic with a view. We will continue upwards slightly for better views of the lake. Then, we will head back down to our starting point through another steep and winding trail, with views of the south coast and the Islet of Vila Franca do Campo along the way.
We will end our adventure by taking a refreshing dip and snorkel (provided) in the Bathing Zone of Caloura OR Agua D’Alto Beach. Then, we will take some time to relax and unwind together.
NOTE: The trail can be quite steep and slippery in some areas.

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!
NOTE: These Hiking Tours are considered to be Full Day tours which include; Pick-up and Drop-off from / to your place of accommodation, Break time to enjoy a picnic lunch (provided), around 4 hours of hiking and time to swim and/or relax at the end of the tour.
