Hiking Tours in Sao Miguel Azores to Fogo Lake
"This walk takes us to one of the most beautiful lakes of the island and to all its surrounding area. This is a very complete hike that passes through a big variety of native and endemic vegetation. The lake occupies the bottom of a collapsed caldera and when we arrive there you have the possibility to go for a quick swim before or after a picnic lunch. This hike is considered medium level – in the morning on the way to the lake the trail goes mostly uphill (for about 2hours). After lunch the trail is mostly downhill and we must be more careful to avoid slipping. This walk is not recommended for people with knee or ankle problems."""This walk takes us to one of the most beautiful lakes of the island and to all its surrounding area.
