Locked office, nobody around so strolled through. The fenced circular pathway works it way around the main section of these fumaroles. At times the pathway was muddy but standing jumps from step to step avoided most of these inconveniences. You could see the steam and as it was a cloudy day, it was more visible. You could also see the various openings where the hot phosphorous gases were emerging from and this creates the coloured rocks around. You could definitely smell those gases, too. It is a little different from others like the Caldeira de Furnas in Sao Miguel, but the principles of this phenomenon are similar. An interesting place

It’s a nice walk but…. Would I recommend you drive over here? No. If your in the area? Sure. It was a nice break fr the car as we walked and climbed the loop. Nothing much to see but some stinky smoke rising from various crevices and the surrounding landscape, that’s beautiful.

The Azores are volcanic islands. Places like this really put that into perspective. Yes, its interesting. However its not all that exciting especially if you have or will go to other islands with bigger similar areas (Furnas on Sao Miguel for example). If you visit only Terceira, then maybe its worth the visit. You can walk along a wooden "boxed in" kind of board walk. Interesting to see the steam coming out of the earth and the pattern of vegetation this causes. Some of the gases are apparently poisonous, hence the boxing in maybe a good thing. You can be done with the circuit in about 10- 15 mins.

The landscape was better than the stinky steam. Fortunately there was very little steam coming out, so that one could enjoy the scenery.

The whole walking experience only takes about 20 minutes but it’s an interesting experience if you are passing nearby. Almost no-one else there when we went.

We came here on a great day, weather wise. The hike around the Furnas is nice more for the surrounding scenery than the actual furnas. There aren't geysers or anything, but simply steam coming out of the ground. We did enjoy our walk around them and the signs were informative. Just watch out for all the mud and don't slip.

Nice flora and fauna. The information signs tells the story of the island and describes the original fauna of the Azores.

Compared to the hot springs gushing with water and sulphur vapour and steam at Caldeiras at Furnas in Sao Miguel the Furnas do Enxofre area a poor imitation. You don’t see any water, only some puffs of steam. The walk through the interesting vegetation is quite nice. Stop to walk round for 20 minutes before or after visiting the very impressive volcanic pit Algar do Carvao. They are very close to each other.

If you have time to see this it's worth it, however if you are going to Sao Miguel this will look like a tiny version of what you will see.

My husband and I ventured to the Furnas do Enxofre on a whim one afternoon. The weather was not particularly ideal for the visit, but we had been out driving around and decided to stop and check it out. It's really, really cool. There is a nice walking path with wooden fencing and handrails, a picnic area, and overlooks. We could see the steam and smell the sulfur. The walking path was incredibly muddy due to the rain that the island had been receiving at the time, so wear walking shoes that you might not mind getting dirty. It's also at a higher elevation, so it's typically cooler and windier than some other places on the island. It's easy to find and I would definitely suggest visiting if you have a chance!
