The Lagoa do Fogo Volcano is located in the center of the island of São Miguel, which makes the tour more diverse. In this jeep tour, you will pass through areas that are not accessible to conventional cars, as it passes through several dirt paths and thus you will be able to see our geothermal and water resources up close in this area of the island.
Departing from Ponta Delgada, we will travel along the south coast to the city of Lagoa, contemplating the beaches of volcanic origin and the incredible Azorean sea with its blue and crystalline waters, having as an indispensable stop the Fábrica de Cerâmica Vieira. Here we will have the opportunity to visualize the artisanal method of clay production and follow the entire process until the final product. These magnificent pieces are known among locals as the famous “Louça da Lagoa”. Then, we will head towards the city of Ribeira Grande where we will be able to make a stop on one of the black sand beaches, the well-known Santa Bárbara beach, where a stage of the world surfing championship takes place. After visiting the historic city center of Ribeira Grande, we will head towards the Ponta do Cintrão viewpoint to enjoy the part of the North coast of the island and its magnificent cliffs. After visiting this unique place, we will start the ascent of the Lagoa do Fogo mountain, covering some dirt paths and some jeep waterways. On the way up to the mountain, we will have an optional stop at the Caldeira Velha Natural Park, rich in endemic plants, where you can bathe in its thermal water pools, with temperatures that can reach 38 degrees.
Finally, we will visit the famous and unforgettable Lagoa de Fogo, where you can enjoy a fabulous view of the lagoon, ex-libris of the island of São Miguel and Natural Reserve since 1974. At Pico da Barrosa we will have the opportunity to have another perspective of Lagoa do Fogo Fire as well as enjoy the scenery to the south coast of the island.
