This tour is designed for those intending to nature in its wild state, getting away from massif touristic places.
With the target on the island central massif we will visit the volcanic cones adjacent to the main "Volcano of Fire" where are nested lakes surrounded by wild lush vegetation. Due to its 'hidden' location and access, these places still remains unknown even for the local people and intact without any human intervention .
For access in some of these places will be necessary to take short walks in steep terrain but without any doubt, well worth the effort that is often crowned with the observation of birds. We recommend the use of walking boots and stick.
Around them it's "Monte Escuro", raised to 898 meters in altitude and its steep slopes covered by the endemic Macaronesian flora that we gonna pass through when going down to "Caldeiras da Ribeira Grande", a small fumaroles complex. This is a unique tour offer and unmissable for wild nature lovers.
