About the Experience

Feel and experience the volcanic origins of the Island in Furnas, a magical place. We start visiting the Caldeiras da Lagoa das Furnas (Furnas Lake Calderas), a place where we cook the famous “cozido das Furnas” (a very special meal cooked only with the steam of the Earth). Then we visit the town of Furnas, with its fumaroles, hot springs with different tastes. Cozido meal is served in a local restaurant. Afterwards we visit the centenary Terra Nostra botanical garden known by its extraordinary collection of native plants for the Azores and others from all over the world that adapted to the local garden conditions. At the end of the visit people are invited to bathe in the ironed hot water swimming pool at the temperature of 35/40ºC, an exquisite experience! On the way back to Ponta Delgada we stop in several beautiful view points on the North Coast and also at the only tea plantation in Europe where we will be able to visit the tea factory laboring and have a lovely break to taste the tea.
