All about the trip
The Lagoa do Fogo trail starts in the south part of the island on a beaten earth track. We will start ascending until reaching a water channel from which the trail runs for about 2 km. Then you will find yourself in a more open area with big slopes and after passing through several springs we will reach the lake. After resting and enjoying the picnic lunch we will return enjoying the majestic views of the ocean and the southern coast of São Miguel island. We will invite you to visit Caloura or Agua D'Alto beach where you can enjoy the Atlantic Ocean. You will have a possibility to do snorkeling.Watch on Youtube

Azorean weather can change drastically during the same day. Hiking in the mountains can be totally different from hiking at the sea level. It is important to be prepared for high levels of humidity that can be combined with heat and also for wind and rain that can be combined with low temperatures in the mountains. Please consider the pick up time as 15 minutes prior and after the departure time of your excursion. The trail can be quite steep and slippery in some areas.
