  • We rode along the Lake following the path PRC6SMI, a hike of about 10 km circular that starts and ends at the local town of Furnas. Low difficulty journey that allows you to observe the water level in its entirety. The greenish-hued Lake is fairly anonymous in some places, but what really stands out is the richness of elements which surround: numerous picnic areas, the geothermal area of caldeiras (the "fumarole" also used to cook food), installation of fantastic figures and real wood that excite children, a dense vegetation and varies from intense aromas. A Lake it deserves, but mainly if you love walking!

  • We started the hike in Furnas. A wide Street is the mountain fairly steeply upwards. Still, you feel like in the jungle. The slopes are covered with exotic plants left and right. Once at the top it goes along just on the road, before you turn right to the hot springs. There starts the "walk" around the Lake. It's rather a long walk. About halfway through you could stop at a Café on the edge of the Lake.

  • If the view is impressive from the top, go down every mile Valley. The path is steep but well. Some people go in flip-flops but I don't recommend it. It should be recalled that is protected site, the lack of signage makes us want to go to the baths, I just wasn't because I didn't wear shorts. But is forbidden (found out later). Take water, and take pictures. Enjoy the site and return leave everything as found!
