Our hotel was very nice, nice breakfast with botanical garden view. Admission to the gardens and hot springs (bath robes and towels) included in your... More

Furnas Monitoring & Research Centre is well worth visiting. The exibition is very pedagogic and the people working there are interesting to listen to. The place is very beautiful.

Vulcânic related spot where you can easily see the water coming out of the land. They cook many different dishesthere. Beware of the sulfuros smell.

Took an Azores Adventures Futurismo half day tour from the Ponta Delgada cruise ship terminal to Furnas area. Since the island is a lush green agricultural island jewel the drive to Furnas was scenic. From Ponta Delgada to Furnas is only about 45 minute drive. Lake Furnas was our first stop then we headed the short distance to Furnas, a... More

Great for sightseeing and for a snack... You can also try the famous Cozido das Furnas or the corn in the cob, ice creams or the bolos lêvedos. Great for young families.

Fantastic place for relaxation. Ideal for people who loves nature. The village is small and it is famous by 'fumarolas', the living volcano that lives beneath. After visiting the fumarolas, go to the Terra Nostra Park and Furnas Lagoon.

A wonderful visit to the city as we stayed at the Terra Nostra Hotel and Botanical Garden. The town is a "must see" and has a delightfully unique city center, a fun place to stop and enjoy a wine at a local cafe as well as to see the various volcanic vents and springs throughout the city. Many people from... More

Took a local taxi to visit this site. The driver Jose, a native gave us so much information on the tour and even set up a luncheon at a resturant that serves dishes cooked in the ground by steam. Wonderful experience.

Plan a full day in Furnas! You can walk trails, walk around the lake, observe the hot springs, visit the botanical garden and finish it all in a hot bath... One of the best day of our trip in Sao Miguel!
