Caldeira, Horta

(4.7/5 based on 400+ 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.
