About the Experience

On this complete tour, you will feel and experience the volcanic origins of the island in Furnas, a magical place full of geothermal activity.

Passing by the Lagoa das Furnas, the local restaurant is our next stop to taste the famous “Cozido”, one of the most emblematic dishes of the Azores. It is a mixture of regional vegetables and meats cooked with the help of a volcanic activity. A gastronomic experience you cannot miss. This is a very special meal cooked only with the steam of the Earth.
