Caldeira, Horta

(4.7/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
Get a glimpse of nature's best work at Caldeira, a volcanic crater with impressive island views. A road takes you straight to the top if you want to minimize walking. Once there, you can choose to hike around the crater's perimeter or head to the observation deck at the end of a tunnel. Clear weather makes for the best experience here, but if the clouds block your view, try waiting half an hour--that is often enough time to get better visibility. Add Caldeira and other attractions to your Horta trip itinerary using our Horta trip itinerary builder.

  • From what I could see is beautiful. It's too bad you don't have access for wheelchair-bound tourists, if they'd do a ramp next to the stairs like in many viewpoints was fairer. ´ is a shame as tourist and considered mandatory stop does not have access to all. It seems that your beauty is not worthy of being appreciated by everyone. I'm sorry.

  • This Caldera form the top of the island of Faial. Here, in addition to the amazing interior of the caldera may be seen all over the island of Faial. If up the Cap side note the alignment of several volcanic cones from Capelinhos to the Boiler itself.

  • The Caldeira do Faial awakens a feeling of attraction when viewed from a distance and a sense of AWE as we approach and enter in your womb. Is the pure nature and stunning, stimulating our imagination that can step back to a time when the Faial was a Virgin.
