Invoke the tranquility of the location where you will have the opportunity to enjoy all the built heritage in this bucolic place until reaching the place where you find fumarole and boiling waters. On the banks of the lake, and due to volcanic activity, locals make traditional stew. The return is made by the central part of the lagoon so you may enjoy the surroundings of the site. After lunch at a restaurant in the Furnas village (choice of meat or fish entrees), you will start the mountain bike ride. It's a circular route (10.5 kms) which starts in Furnas village, follows to the calderas area by Lagoa das Furnas and continues through the dirt road that surrounds the lake.

    Our tour guide Joachim was bright, funny, knowledgeable, and a complete delight. He shared a lot of information about life and living on San Miguel island and the Azores in general. He seem to customize the tour according to the wishes and interests of those in his tour group. There was a wonderful lunch at Tony's restaurant in Furnas after canoeing across the lake and before the bicycle trek. Highly recommend giving the store some consideration
