  • Walk walk walk and when we lose hope there the beautiful waterfall. Worth the walk to be able to contemplate that marvel.

  • A nice walk to wear the "cozido das furnas". Along the way are two waterfalls and a Azorean landscape.

  • We did this hike in September with our 1.5 and 3.5 year old children. There was a lot of up and down to get there, but it was lovely to swim at the falls once we were there. On the hike back - choose ...  more »

  • Beautiful hike.. slightly cold water, hardly any people. This was a spectacular way to spend 90 minutes or so. Well worth it.
  • What a nice experience walking to Salto do Prego. The hike took us only about 50min (to get to the waterfall). Back there you won't find a lot of people and we enjoyed a nice picknick above the fall near the stream. The hike is moderate to easy and shouldn't pose too many obstacles for most people. On the way down make sure to take the alternative route (just a bit longer) and you will have a great view out of the valley.
  • This was a really memorable hike through ancient forest. Be prepared for a tough hike with lots of steep sections. Ideally, bring a swimsuit and enjoy the waterfall as a reward. P.s. water is ice cold!
  • If you plan to hike to Salto Do Prego, you took a good decision. This hike, PRC09, is very nice, quite easy, and gives you awesome view on the coast with its cliff. Of course the main attraction of this hike are the waterfall of Salto Do Prego and the nice antic village of Sanguinho. The hike is about 4km and 340m of elevation gain. It should take you about 2hours to enjoy it. In summer don't forget your swimsuit for a bath in the waterfall if you are brave enough to enter in this cold water.
  • Easy and refreshing trail. Proper shoes needed, saw a girl struggling there in flip flops
