Walking

The lake is wonderful and peaceful. The park at TerraNostra is heaven to walk around and see the flowers and the swans in the lake.

This town has many this to offer from visiting Furnas Lake and watching them place food to cook in the ground. There are area to swim in hot springs such as terra nostra park and poca de beijo. I highly recommend a visit to the caldeiras and try the local corn cooked in the boiling water....

Furnas is my number two on the list of my favorite towns. What is great is that one can use Furnas as a base and visit lots of other places and always come back to your living space. I was camping here and it was a great location for 7 euros a day. And the HOT SPRINGS help make this... More

A fantastic place. One of the places where the Azores should be. Beautiful parks and gardens. Thermal springs and pools. Cute cafes and walking areas. Definitely recommend D. Beatriz do Canto Park (37.775148, -25.314883) Tera Nostra Garden, Dona Beija Pool, Lagoa das Furnas.

Furnas has a beautiful lake and equipped with efficient steamers for food cooking. This place has the usual bubbling muds and steam vents that are common to any volcano active sites. More interestingly, the local make use of the steam vents to cook food. Don't miss it and try to smell out where the food is in your next visit.

Furnas is a lovely small town with beautiful gardens at Terra Nostra. The walk around Furnas lake is beautiful and it is awe inspiring seeing the geo- thermal activity at the site.

Not as much to see as we thought. A few areas off bubbling mud and water and steam vents. There was a sign as you drove in advertising Cozido (the stew) at Eu 3 but we didn't get there until 2 so assume that it had finished by then. Drove down into village but found it a bit too touristy... More

But there is other track - Pico something - you can go there from cash desk of Furnas lake. There is also other way to this pico. It begins cca after 1 km of lake circle. It is not marked. But when you reach ruinas of nice and big house, you are on the right way.

We visited furnas while in Sao Muguel. Uts a small town centred around hot springs. Theres a tourist office un the centro of town worth a visit. They can point you inthe direction if the free hot springs and drinkable fiuntains. Try the fresh corn boiled in the bubbling spring.

A charming village where you can sample local "Cozido", but also dunk yourself in the hot spring waters. There are three different temperatures so there is bound to be one for everyone! The last is in the natural river water itself, and feeling the warm waters rushing by under a moonlit night is a truly memorable experience!
