This excursion is definitely worth it. We had the opportunity to see Lagoa do Fogo while on a tour with Azores Best Tours. The hike is worth the view. This is a great hike for family and kids. One of our favourite views.

We went twice to see the lake. The first time it was cloudy and barely you could get view due to the fog. The second time we truly lucked out. This view is so incredible, I’ve never seen anything like it. I wish we had...More

From Agua de Alto it is possible to follow a sign to Lagoa do Fogo and drive up a third of the way to a car park, before the dirt road starts. The trail is relatively steep up to an aqueduct that leads to the...More

We visited twice. The view and hike are wonderful. This is a real gym. Well worth the 20 minute hike each way. Give yourself time to explore at the bottom.

Take the time to do the walking track down to the lagoon. Takes around 30 min and it's not so demanding. It is nice to have a picnic down at the beach. Clear waters and nice sand.

We went to the observation point after we visited the Caldeira Velha (which I also suggest you to visit) and were rewarded with an overwhelming view! I highly recommend you to visit both of these attractions.

Stunningly beautiful view. There is a pathway to hike down a slopping path to the lake. Highly recommend it.

Inevitably, it is a long way up from the coastline to the viewpoints surrounding the Lagoa do Foga. In doing so you have to drive past two geothermic electricity generating plants. Neither of these really impact in any way on the landscape, (although it is...More

There is a paved road going to the top of the hill overlooking the lake, but I really would not see it as a hiking area. You would want to take a vehicle to the top. Once there, you will find plenty of easy places to walk... More
