Description

Fogo lake is the most untouched of the crater lakes of the Azores with almost no trace of human presence.

On the first section of the trail, walk along the crater rim, with astonishing views of the lake on one side and the island's outline on the other. Then enter a forest of Japanese Cedars and breathe the freshest air.

Descend to water level, only accessible by foot, to truly immerse in the quietness of the purest Azorean nature.

We'll have a wonderful picnic in the white pumice beaches and you may dive in the clear unpolluted waters if you want.

If you're a nature lover, this is an experience you'll never forget.
