Tour to the Volcanic Complex of Furnas where the volcanic nature of the Azores islands is most readily apparent


Departing from Ponta Delgada towards where the volcanic nature of the Azores islands is most readily apparent - Furnas.

On the way, we will stop at the Belvedere of Senhora da Paz in Vila Franca do Campo for a superb view over the town and Islet.

Arriving at the Furnas you will be wrapped by the great volcanic activity such as the fountains of mineral waters of various temperatures and flavors that flows from lava walls, making this place one of the richest hydrological region of Europe and the Caldeiras where the locals cook a kind of stew - the traditional dish cozido.

The way back to Ponta Delgada will be done by the north main road for a stop in the Belvedere of Pico do Ferro to take a overlooking to the Furnas Lake and Valley where the natives lives in a small parish, Tea Factory to enjoy a comforting teacup and one final stop - the belvedere of Santa Iria with a stunning view for the coast line.

A Recent Review of this tour

Easy to find outside cruise terminal. Offered to adjust planned itinerary to my needs (stayed with Furnas Hot Springs since the web cams he checked showed fog at other volcanic calderas). Clean and comfortable Jeep. Safe driver. Knows his island(s) country and how to reach the best tourist spots before they get crowded with tour buses. Excellent tour. Highly recommend!
