01:00 PM

Break for Lunch

Furnas Stew, or "Cozido das Furnas" in Portuguese, is a traditional dish from the Azores, specifically associated with the village of Furnas on São Miguel Island. This hearty stew is unique because it's cooked using the natural geothermal heat from volcanic activity in the area.


Furnas Stew is not only delicious but also a cultural experience, as it showcases the culinary traditions of the Azores and the use of natural resources in cooking. Visitors to Furnas often seek out restaurants in the area that specialize in serving this iconic dish, offering a taste of local cuisine infused with the flavors of the volcanic landscape.


There is a vegan option of the stew. Also visitors can try different meals other than the stew.

02:10 PM

Hot springs of the Furnas Village

These hot springs are part of the volcanic landscape of Furnas, where underground volcanic activity heats water and creates steam vents, hot springs, and bubbling mud pots. Visitors to the Caldeiras das Furnas can witness these natural phenomena up close, experiencing the power and energy of the earth's geothermal activity.

These are breaks in the Earth's crust from which steam and volcanic gases escape. The hot springs in Furnas release clouds of steam, creating an otherworldly atmosphere.

One of the highlights of the Pico do Ferro viewpoint is the view of Furnas Lake, a picturesque body of water nestled among the verdant hills and volcanic craters. The contrast between the deep blue waters of the lake and the lush greenery of the surrounding landscape creates a scene of unparalleled natural beauty.


Visitors to the Pico do Ferro viewpoint can also take in sweeping views of the Furnas Valley, with its rolling hills, dense forests, and scattered volcanic cones.

On clear days, it's even possible to see the Santa Maria Island.
