  • Drive along the south road, passing the village of Lagoa and the viewpoint of Caloura. Visit Vila Franca and continue to the Valley of Furnas to see the lake and hot springs.

 

  • Enjoy the typical island dish of ‘cozido’ where a large pot is lowered into holes in the ground and cooked by the underground volcanic steam.

 

  • Botanical gardens, geysers and mineral water springs. Visit a tea plantation and the Santa Iria viewpoint, with the best breath-taking views across the island.
