Know More about this tour

The trail begins in a dirt path that climbs through woods of eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus), incense (Pittosporum undulatum) and conteiras (Hedychium gardneranum). and New Zealand flax (Phormiun tenax, a New Zealand plant ) that was woven in a former factory and whose ruins we can still visit. The trail then continues along a levada (about 2 kms) until you reach a wider area, with large slopes on both sides going to the margins of Lagoa do Fogo. During the ascent there are several places where you can enjoy a magnificent view of Vila Franca do Campo and his Islet. The stop for lunch is made along the shores of the lake, with the possibility to swim in the most pristine lake of San Miguel. The return to the initial point is made by a path that traverses an area covered in endemic vegetation, flowing into an area of pastures, as we lower altitude. Return to Ponta delgada includes visit to the bathing area of Caloura harbour.

    Diogo was an excellent guide! From the hotel pickup to the trailhead, hike, lunch and back again, he not only gave us the history of the lake and surroundings he also documented our adventure with pictures and a GoPro video both above & below the water. A must see for any curious traveler, Diogo made our day memorable. Thank you

    Très belle randonnée à Lagoa do fogo. 4h de marche en compagnie de Thiago, un guide très sympathique, qui nous a informés sur la vie aux Açores dans un très bon français. Pique nique très agréable sur les berges du lac. Merci Thiago !!

    Die Wanderung zur Lagoa do Fogo mit unserem Guide Eduardo Castello war ein tolles Erlebnis. Atemberaubende Natur, sympathischer Tourguide mit viel Wissen und ein gutes Mittagessen bei Meeresrauschen. Sowohl die Tour als auch der Guide sind sehr empfehlenswert. Ein toller Tag!

    I had a hike to Lagoa do Fogo and it was actually nice. I wish I was more lucky with the weather, but I was definitely lucky with my guide Luis :) Thanks to Picos de Aventura for the provided service!

    Fizemos ontem a caminhada à lagoa do Fogo com o Hugo. Fizemos um trilho acessível, muito muito giro, a passar por levadas de água e por paisagens que parecia que estávamos nos Alpes. Uma forma incrível de conhecer a beleza dos Açores. O Hugo foi impecável, mostrou-nos imensas curiosidades da flora e fauna ao longo do percurso, foi super empático quando queríamos parar para tirar uma foto ou apreciar a paisagem. Recomendo muito fazer este trilho. A Lagoa do Fogo é imponente e

    Esto fue gracias a Eduardo Castello, el guía, que compartió con nosotros mucha información sobre la Isla, también sobre la gastromía. Muy agradable, bien informado y muy atento en todo momento. !Lo recomendamos!

    Abbiamo trascorso una settimana a Ponta Delgada e per sei giorni abbiamo partecipato alle attività organizzate da Picos de Aventura che ci avevano precedentemente presentato tramite l'agenzia italiana Longitudini. Le attività costituivano essenzialmente in escursioni nei maggiori punti di interesse naturalistico dell'Isola di Sao Miguel, dall'estremo Est a quello Ovest, ma anche un pomeriggio dedicato all'avvistamento ravvicinato di delfini e di un capodoglio. Le guide che ci hanno accompagnato e che ricordiamo volentieri sono state Jonathan, Eduardo e Gonçalo. Tutti giovani, ma estremamenti competenti, disponibili ed appassionati, con le loro spiegazioni (in ottimo inglese) ci hanno portato per mano nella esplosiva vegetazione locale, nella storia e nella cultura (cucina inclusa) dell'Isola di Sao Miguel. Ogni volta, al termine delle attività, non si sono mai limitati al programma previsto, ma ci hanno proposto spontaneamente, seppur oltre la loro normale giornata lavorativa, deviazioni dai percorsi standard per consentirci di vedere angoli affascinanti, ma meno noti ai turisti stranieri. Nei giorni trascorsi insieme siamo stati trattati come amici e, anche grazie a loro la nostra vacanza è stata indimenticabile e ne siamo tornati soddisfatti e arricchiti sia personalmente che culturalmente.
