Full description
Spend a full day hiking to Lagoa do Fogo and see the gorgeous natural views São Miguel has to offer! This walk takes you to one of the most beautiful lakes on 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 you arrive there you will have the opportunity 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 2-hours). After lunch the trail is mostly downhill and you must be more careful to avoid slipping. This walk is not recommended for people with knee or ankle problems.
