About the Experience

Hike through the beautiful volcanic landscapes surrounding Faial's Capelo parish and Capelinhos volcano.

This Trail starts on the west side of Faial Island in “Cabeço Verde”, one of the volcanic cones of Capelo Peninsula. The hike starts by taking you around the mount overlooking the small town of Praia do Norte, and then follows a trail that leads to the many volcanic cones and hills in the area including “Cabeço do Fogo” and the “Morro de Castelo Branco”. The next stop on this hike is the lava tube of Furna Ruim, and from there you will cut through the lush Laurissilva Forest and its gorgeous natural scenery until we reach the peak of  “Cabeço do Canto” where we will end the hike with the breathtaking views of the Capelinhos volcanic landscape down below.
