- Stop at Nossa Senhora da Paz chapel for the views over Vila Franca do Campo
- Swim in the thermal waters of Poça da Dona Beija
- Try the famous "cozido,” cooked in the hot springs of Furnas
Be sure to bring a swimsuit on this full-day 4WD tour to enjoy the thermal waters at Poça da Dona Beija. Dona Beija is part of a series of iron-rich hot springs warmed by the volcanic activity that is part of the history of the Furnas Valley.
The springs arise from underground thermal aquifers that are in permanent contact with rocks subjected to high temperatures. The average temperature of the water is 102 degrees Fahrenheit.
Enjoy cozido for lunch, a typical stew-like dish that is cooked for 6-8 hours in the hot springs.
After visiting the many hot springs and fumeroles in the Furnas Valley you’ll stop at Pico do Ferro for an overview of the Furnas Crater. Returning along the northern shore, you’ll stop to unwind at a tea plantation. Take a short tour of the factory and sample some of the island’s tea.
