Make sure you visit when the clouds and fog have not rolled in. The views are breathtaking. We hiked down to the lake and it is such a special place. So green and lush. It is much cooler so make sure you bring a sweater and or jacket.

We enjoyed going up the mountain road towards the Lagoa do Fogo and stopping at the view point 900 meters high , Fabulous ! in the village stop at the local ceramic factory.

Lovely to see, difficult to get to, as you have to walk down (then up) to see it up close. The trail is not for amateurs. If you are not that athletic, just stop at one of the overlooks and take it all in. The drive there is nice.

The beauty of the place is indescribable in words. The island of São Miguel, one of the nine Portuguese islands of the Azores, is a paradise on earth.

Compared to the all there is to do at Furnas, including the geysers, fumaroles and hot springs, the marvellous views of Furnas lake from the Miradouro do Pico do Ferro and the walk round the lake itself, and the fabulous views of Sete Cidades from the Miradouro in the Parque Lagoa do Canario and from the tracks and paths in both directions around the rim of the crater, Lagoa do Fogo was a bit disappointing. Looking again at my photographs made me realise that the views were more spectacular than I recalled, however there only seemed to be the three main view points from the road. I think we stayed 10 minutes looking at the fine vistas of lake. We spent about two or three hours at Sete Cidades and more than that at Furnas. One book describes the Lagoa do Fogo area as a bleak inhospitable region, where clouds scud over the mountaintops, and a cold wind may be blowing …if so, continue straight on for Ribeira Grande (Sunflower Landscapes, Azores Tours and Walks, 2012).
