Did this hike back in July of this year. Epic is all I can say. The views of the Caldeira on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other side are out of this world.

I highly recommend this hike.

Tips: a hat, water, & sun screen when it's sunny. It's an expose trail - no shade.

This is an absolutely beautiful hike around the rim of the Caldeira do Faial. There are great views overlooking the rest of the island and into the caldeira itself. It is relatively easy as there isn't too much in the way of elevation gain.

This hike takes you on a less trafficked part of Faial (not that any of Faial is particularly high-traffic). The ridges are fault lines, hence all the earthquakes in the area. It's a very pleasant hike - a mix of history and scenery.
