What you'll do

São Miguel thermal waters are well known to be an amazing phenomenon, a side effect from the active island volcanos. Furnas is a place where the volcano activity can be closely observed and experienced in all its splendor.

I will cover with you all of the wonders coming from Furnas Volcano: Furnas lake, geysers, steam cooking pods and water fountains.

After this you can also choose one of the local thermal pools (Terra Nostra Park or Poça da D. Beija) and indulge yourself on a steaming bath, great even under winter weather, that will relax your mind and rejuvenate your muscles (1 entrance fee included per person). After the hot bath I will take you to taste Furnas favorite seasonal products (corn, chestnuts) cooked on the boiling waters of the volcano! Or the famous "Bolo Lêvedo" (yeast cake) warm out of the oven.

To complete this amazing experience, on our way to or back you will also be at the tea plantation, only place that grows tea in Europe, and taste our unique green tea. The perfect day in São Miguel even if it´s raining!

This experience takes about 5-6h.
The transportation is a 4 people vehicle, so there is a maximum of 3 participants for your comfort. I can rent a van up to 7 people, if you are interested let me know.
If this experience is not available on your chosen date, please ask me for availability.

Hi I´m an English and History teacher, and an island guide together with my daughter Monique (a Airbnb Super Host), for 5 years now, in the little paradise island of São Miguel, where we were also fortunate to be born and raised. You will understand why I say fortunate, many of the travelers that come here and stay or explore the island with us, fall easily in love and want to move here right away! My island bursts with amazing volcanic landscapes, thermal activity, luxurious fauna and flora, and endless shades of green. The weather plays a big role in the islander´s lives, since it´s always changing, we can have the 4 seasons in the same day, and it´s much easier to navigate through it with a help of a local. I know all of the island perks, and spots, and my passion is to show visitors the genuine way of living like an Azorean!

Carlos was a really great guide, I would 100% recommend him. He explained everything we were going along and told us interesting stories as well. We could have never manage to visit so many things on our own within a day. He knows really well the island and a nice company as well.

Monique & Carlos have a unique approach to the guests. They were very flexible in terms of a plan and very careful to the guests, asking for preferable places to visit and points to stay at for a while. As a natives Monique & Carlos have a valuable knowledge and experience to share. Highly recommended to those who would like to know the history and the nature of the Azores.
