After convenient pickup from your hotel in Ponta Delgada, meet your tour guide and set out on your scenic hike, with a walking stick and picnic lunch in tote. Wind your way through thick greenery and listen as your guide points out some of the area's native flora.

Learn the history of Lagoa do Fogo, or the Lagoon of Fire, including its formation. Take a rest and enjoy a picnic lunch of a sandwich, fruit, cake, and juice before taking a quick swim in the lake's warm, iron-rich water.

After lunch, take a mostly downtown journey back to your starting point, with more views of sweeping island landscape at every angle. End your journey with a hassle-free ride back to your hotel or the tourism office.
