A walk through the Seven Cities lagoons: Blue Lagoon, Green Lagoon and Santiago Lagoon. Most of the trail is on a dirt road, ending with a bit of paved road. Spectacular views of the lakes and the coast. The abandoned hotel is definitely worth a visit - be careful when investigating the building.Show more

Length: 5.8 mi • Est. 2 h 54 m
This trail begins and ends in the town of Furnas and takes around 3 h. The route begins in Três Bicas and continues on through this area until it begins to climb on a tarmac road that leads to Lagoa das Furnas. Following the signs carefully you will reach Caldeiras da Lagoa which is about 2.5 km into the trail. You will often see tourists here watching local inhabitants use the high temperatures in the ground to cook traditional dishes. The trail continues along the lakeside, circling the lake on an easily accessible beaten earth path. After about 3 kms walking you will reach the Hermitage of Nossa Senhora das Vitórias, built in the nineteenth century in Gothic style. Then continue along the edge of the stoned paved regional road for about 1.5 km until you come to a turning to your right that leads down to the town of Furnas. Continue along this route and in 30 m you will reach the end of the trail.Show more

Length: 4.9 mi • Est. 2 h 36 m
This trail begins next to the Pico Vermelho Geothermal Power Station, passes the Salto do Cabrito Hydroelectric Power Station and ends at the Ribeira Grande Caldeiras (hot springs). The trail starts just by the “Lagoa do Fogo” restaurant. A little further on, take a left turn along a dirt path, which goes past a wood of Victorian box, acacia, Japanese red cedar and eucalyptus trees. You can see the Ribeira Grande valley to your right from various points along this path. After walking for approximately 1 km, you will come to the Salto do Cabrito Hydroelectric Power Station; here you can turn off the main path and near the stream you can see the impressive waterfall which gives its name to the power station. Return to the main path, climb the steps there, and cross the walkway above the water pipes until you reach the Fajã do Redondo Hydroelectric Power Station, which is no longer in operation. Continue along the trail until you reach a dirt road, where you should turn right, and then continue ahead for about 500 metres. At the end you will come to an asphalt road where, if you turn left, you will come to the Ribeira Grande Caldeiras, where the trail ends. There are a number of hot springs in this area, and you can enjoy typical dishes at the traditional restaurant there.Show more

Length: 3.9 mi • Est. 2 h 38 m
The dense and deep green landscapes allow an inspiring descent until the beginning of Levada, through the Laurisilva Forest. On more rainy days, the floor may be more slippery through the mud, so you should take extra care in your mobility.Show more
