Full description

Explore the impressive landscapes and amazing panoramas on a hiking trip to São Miguel. In the area of “Lagos”, start the trail on a dirt road that will get considerably steeper for the first 3 km, at which point you will meet an irrigation channel that will lead you to Lagoa do Fogo.

Wander along an easy path through the forest, where 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, take a break and enjoy a picnic lunch of regional products with a view.

Setting off once more, continue upwards slightly for better views of the lake and then head back down to the 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. Return to the starting point while enjoying another perspective of the south coast and the Atlantic Ocean. Visit the bathing zone of Caloura, or Agua D’Alto Beach, where you can practice snorkeling.

This was my favorite activity I did in the Azores! Absolutely stunning views of untouched nature on the way to the crater lake, and even more stunning views there. Highly recommended. Our guide Rodrigo did a great job, and it was cool to see how excited he was to see these sights even though he had been many times before--it is that spectacular! Great company and I recommend booking with them (I did two activities and enjoyed both). My group only ended up having two participants but they still had the tour.

It was a nice hike. A bit difficult for the first three Kilometers, but after that it was easy. The sandwich for lunch was very tasty and the lake was beautiful. Our guide, Danielle is lovely and helpful. I enjoyed the trip and recommend it to anyone who loves hiking.
