Short and quick. You can actually drive and park right at the base of the climb/stairs if you’d like instead of parking across the road and walking in. The view is incredible! Absolute must visit.

One of the best hikes of my life

1 month ago

Very nice trek! The trail is marked all the way up to the summit, you don’t need a guide.

Great little loop, starting in the town of Lomba da Fazenda. Really nice way marking throughout - we also loved seeing all the signs of geologists doing sampling work in the area (all the holes drilled in the rocks). This is the oldest part of São Miguel.

Did this trail in May ‘18- it was nice and easy as far as terrain goes. Most of it is in a road with a few steep inclines/declines.

It was one of the best hike I’ve done! Most people do it in approximately 7 hours. Bring a hat because there is no trees to cover you! You can camp at the top and please go on pequeno, it is juste amazing to see the Atlantic ocean all around you!

Nice easy hike around a beautiful lake. Lovely views all around and an abandoned chapel about half-way. Calderas and thermal springs are interesting as well. Love Vale Das Furnas and São Miguel!!!

We actually went with a guide to this waterfall. Very steep dirt road to get to it. Sadly there is some kind of electrical building right at the base of the waterfall that makes significant noise, so the ambience is ruined by it. However the waterfall is pretty and there's a small area for swimming. Just doesn't feel as remote and rural as you'd hope.

Spectacular trail. Also I strongly recommend you go to the boca de inferno miradour somewhat off the trail. It is the most spectacular view in the island!

Easy hike. Nice cafe half way to grab a latte and enjoy the view

Did half of the loop and enjoyed the views.

Easy and full of great sites

Really long tour.
Be carreful with the roads pointed by MappsMe at the end of the tour. Those way are really hard.
