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.

Hiking Tour in Sao Miguel Azores to Faial da Terra
"Faial da Terra is a small village belonging to Povoação located in the South East of São Miguel Island. Our walk starts on a steep narrow road that leads us to Sanguinho – a village that has been abandoned since the early 70’s and is now being restored. The rest of the trail is in the woods with a lot of short up and down hill stretches between very dense and beautiful vegetation. This is really a walk in which you can “smell” all the green around you! Upon reaching Salto do Prego’s waterfall we have the opportunity for a dip before our picnic lunch. On the way back we follow a different trail but with the same characteristics. When we finish the trail we have time for a snack in town and to mingle with the local people.""""This is really a walk in which you can “smell” all the green around you!
