What you'll do

Be prepared for most typical Azorean experience.
Two in one, typical food & thermal pools.

One of the great experience on the island is the thermal pools, you don't want to miss them.
At night is when the place is more quiet, the air temperature is more adequate and the atmosphere is magical.

I want to take you to the one most iconing thermal pools from the island, Poça da Beija.

This experience will start in the end of the day until around midnight, be prepared for the best evening of your trip.

So far seems good, there is more, before the thermal pools we will visit where locals cook the famous "cozido"(stew) using the heat from the volcano and this is what you gonna get for your dinner.

On the top of all that you can have a cup of local tea made in one of the natural hot springs before we return home, all this surounded with a mysterious atmosphere created with the steam coming from the boilers of valley of Furnas.

For better understanding you have to come...

Starting from Ponta Delgada at 18h00-18:30 pm. Pick up at any place situated inside the city of Ponta Delgada.

Bring towels and swimsuit for the Hot Springs baths.

Recommend camera or video camera – the photo oppo

Where you'll be

Our experience will take us to Furnas is around 50 km (30 miles) away from Ponta Delgada and it takes around 1 hour to drive.

The village of Furnas is very similar to other beautiful villages in Azores - white buildings, decorated churches and cozy little streets. However, what it's famous for is the hot springs. this will be one the highest moment of our experience.

Rated 4.96 out of 5 from 208 reviews.

I would definitely recommend to anyone to book this, Eleuterio is very passionate and also very knowledgeable, you can see it in the way he talks. You will learn a lot about what this island has to offer. Make sure you don’t eat much before you go, you will want to save a lot of room for the well known Cozido de Furnas meal. Thermal bath that follows, will make your body even more happier and I promise you, you’ll come back for it and to explore more of Furnas. You will also learn where to go while here. Thank you very much Eleuterio, I really enjoyed meeting you and your daughter, I learned so much from you, the energy around you guys, was just great, I felt comfortable and appreciate it! Great job, you guys keep doing what you’re doing. I really love your Island , sincerely Darius .

If you are contemplating the ideia of travelling to the Azores for the first time, I’d suggest this is the experience you want to book on your first day in São Miguel! Eleuterio is very knowledgeable & passioned about his island. He can go on and on telling you all about the invasive species in the nature, economy, politics, history and also suggests other experiences like where to go and what to see around São Miguel, and all of it itself gives a unique personal touch to the experience ahead of you. Few days before the pick up, we decided to head to Furnas but afraid to spoil the experience with Eleuterio, we didn’t do much, yet, we revisited a few places we done before and it was nowhere near as interesting as it was with Eleuterio. His final touch/ surprise of making a fresh gin&tonic, local gin & the natural spring fizzy water cocktail, or mocktail in my case, from the Volcanic park was just amazing & unique! So far we have done 3 of the many recommendations he mentioned during our trip to Furnas, and we really appreciated all of them!!! The recommendations I can make before you adventure yourself are: get ready to eat. The ‘ Cozido de Furnas’ is really NOM and filling. 3 of us couldn’t finish it all. For the Thermal bath I highly recommend dark bathing suits, no jewellery and watches due to the high iron amount in the water. At least during Covid19 period, we weren’t allowed to shower after bathing, so we couldn’t rinse off our bathing suits soon enough before it got stained. Thank you very much Eleuterio! We really loved all we learnt with you and everyday we fall in love more and more with your island!

This was such a great experience because Eleuterio was very open and real, and there is nothing like getting valuable information from someone who has lived on the island his entire life. I feel like he is very perceptive to each guest's needs, and wants everyone involved to truly enjoy the experience. He would rather you take your time instead of feeling rushed throughout the night. He has answers and unique personal touches to a touristic activity. I would highly recommend!

Realmente es una experiencia única. Euleterio es super profesional, conociendo a la perfección la cultura azoriana. Fuimos solo una pareja en el grupo, y en ningún momento se nos hizo rara la situación, sino justo lo contrario. Tuvo muchos detalles con nosotros muy bonitos y dignos de recordar para siempre. Muito obrigada.
