What You'll Do
  • 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
Overview
Discover the thermal wonders of São Miguel Island on a full-day 4WD excursion. Visit geysers, hot springs, and the fumaroles scattered throughout the village of Furnas. Swim in thermal waters at Dona Beija and taste “cozido,” cooked in the hot springs!
What to Expect
You’ll travel along many secondary roads, as you explore São Miguel on the way to Furnas. Pass small villages on the southern coastal road before stopping at the Nossa Senhora da Paz chapel for the scenic views over Vila Franca do Campo, the island’s first capital.

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.
