Lagoa do Fogo, Sao Miguel

(1,100+ reviews on the web)
Water Body
Hike through the untouched nature surrounding Lagoa do Fogo, a crater lake at the center of Sao Miguel Island. This vividly blue body of water fills a crater that was formed from a volcanic eruption in 1563. The lake is the highest above sea level on the island and is protected by the government, which has banned any modern construction around the lake to preserve its beauty. Follow the trail leading down to the lake. If you prefer not to hike, you can simply visit the tranquil lake by car or with a tour and take in the views from high above.

  • ANother of the several highlights of this beautiful island in the Azores. Great to hike around ...get there on a clear day...worth waiting for that day for this excursion....not to be missed  more »
  • Landscape just incredible muddied by a bad weather. Access convoluted but very picturesque indeed enjoy almost as much with the views of the access

  • Spectacular view, the viewpoints, the park where the waterfall is beautiful but not to shower with 80 people taking photo, looks like a zoo, but who is shameless strength.
