Private Half-Day 4x4 Tour to Fogo Volcano

By Carpe Diem dream tours
About
At 947m above the sea level rises Pico da Barrosa, where throughout the route we can observe the diversity of the local fauna and flora. An enormous crater hides the glamorous Lagoa do Fogo at the top of the Fogo (Fire) Volcano at 575m above sea level. The beauty of the scenery sharpens ours senses with the luxurious vegetation – some endemic – from a spectacular landscape that reveals the magnificence of what nature presents us, on a journey that will last in your memory.

      Join José on this amazing journey through history and geography
      Jose is a driving bundle of knowledge, constant offload of knowledge from geography, history and impacting politics. And ask in English. A gorgeous route with so many impressive routes that most should avoid, amazing photo moments and the perfect way to spend a long morning (finished 13:30). HIGHLY RECOMMEND

      Seize the Day with Jose!
      This was an all day tour (7 hours). We joined two other couples as Jose took us all around the island including the craters as well as the upper ridges of the volcanoes. Jose stopped at prime locations for pictures and conversation. We enjoyed lunch which he arranged at a local restaurant. MOST impressive was Jose's knowledge. He was a combination of historian, botanist, and geologist! A FOUNTAIN of information!

      Great experience!
      We had a great tour with Jose. Even though it was very foggy and we didnt get to see the views from the top of the crater, Jose took us to other places on the island that had great views. He was very informative about all sorts of topics from plants to wildlife to history, etc. The price was very reasonable and we felt we got our value. We would recommend Carpe Diem tours if you are visiting Sao Miguel.

      Jaw dropping nature, exceptional guide
      We had great weather and an amazing guide. I’ve never seen so much natural beauty. Our guide Jose was born and raised in the island and is extremely knowledgeable of the nature and history. It was a perfect day. I’ve never taken so many pictures, by the end of the day my wife and I were exhausted from nature overload, and I mean that in the best sense. You can’t count on the weather, but with a little luck you will be amazed!

      Breathtaking Scenery
      What an experience! Saturday 21st Oct 23 was the most exciting Saturday afternoon we have had in ages. Jose (Joseph) was a mine of information on every applicable subject relevant to Sau Miguel, Sete Cidades, volcanoes, history etc etc and we soaked it up like a sponge. We toured the rim and took in every exciting vista, and talk about off-roading; we were everywhere! Would do the same tour next year. Fantastic!

      Best Experience of my Trip
      Best part of my trip to the Açores! Decided to do this during my 9 hour lay over between São Miguel and Santa Maria. I learned so much about the island, people and culture. The views were amazing and lunch was fabulous - in the inside of a volcano no less! Don’t hesitate to book with Carpe Diem tours.

      Great Guide - Amazing Experience
      Jose is an outstanding local guide. His in-depth knowledge gave us insight into the history, culture and wonderful nature of Sao Miguel. We explored the Furnas area and had amazing time experiencing the thermal pools, tasting cozido cuisine and sampling tea and mineral doing waters. Thank You Jose for a memorable day!

      Outstanding Experience and Guide! Thank You José!
      José of Carpe Diem was fantastic. His knowledge of everything from history to plants to volcanism was impressive, enlightening, and complete. He had a great sense of humor and perfect English for us non-portuguese speakers. He gave us plenty of time to enjoy each location, including the baths of Poca da Dona Beija and lunch at the Queijaria Furnense (cheese factory). We never felt rushed. The views he took us to were spectacular. We also enjoyed the visit to the Gorreana Tea Factory and learning about the process of making tea and seeing antique machinery is still in use. The four of us agree that this entire adventure was the highlight of our vacation and enriched our understanding of the places we visited.

      Best Sao Miguel tour guide!
      We had the BEST full day tour with Jose!! His knowledge of the island was extensive and he was extremely engaging. He managed to keep our seven year old interested the entire day while showing us the most beautiful places on the island. We would recommend him to anyone looking for a tour!

      Unique Sao Miguel Tour
      We hired Jose for two full days of touring. One day around Logoa do Fogo and Sete Cidades. The second day around Furnas. Jose is an excellent guide! He is full of information and has so much pride in showing you his beautiful island. We highly recommend this tour and Jose!

    We had booked a tour with our friends as a port stop on our Transatlantic cruise. This was by far the best tour of anything we have booked anywhere. Getting to see the island with Jose who was born and raised here gave it such a special perspective. The weather was cook and overcast but he truly overcompensated for that with his information and different fun stories. We had more than a half day and he was always willing to stop if we wanted to get a picture and took us to a couple of out of the way stops which were beautiful and lush. Would highly recommend the tour as you will never regret it and this is one place I would love to go back and visit for sure. Thank you Jose for a wonderful tour!!!
