Furnas Day Tour
Sao Miguel Island, Azores
Furnas is the epicentre of the geothermal activity of Sao Miguel. One hour drive from the centre of Ponta Delgada through lush countryside will take you to the geo-thermal pulse of the island. Full of bubbling hot mud pools, hot springs, steaming fumaroles and thermal hot water falls. Dine on the local meat stew “Cozido das Furnas” buried underground and cooked using natural heat.
The tour includes a swim in the stunning hot thermal lake set in stunning botanical gardens (designed 100 years ago by the Kew gardeners). Take a towel and a bathing suit so you can spend some time in the mineral rich, hot thermal waters.
