From Angra: 3-Hour Volcano Tour

1. From Angra: 3-Hour Volcano Tour

Discover the volcanos and volcanic caves of Terceira Island on this geology lover's guided tour. Visit Algar do Carvão, Furnas do Enxofre and Gruta do Natal with an expert guide. Meet your guide and driver for pick-up at your hotel and head to the first stop on the tour — the inactive Algar do Carvão. Visit it from the inside and discover its small lake and fascinating geological formations. Next head to Furnas do Enxofre, a small strip of land with 20 fumaroles expelling white vapor into the air. You'll also see native flora like the Azores juniper and the Azores blueberry. Top off your tour with a visit to Gruta do Natal (Christmas Cave), a system of caves known as a lava tube, full of spectacular volcanic formations.

Terceira Island: Mistérios Negros Hike

2. Terceira Island: Mistérios Negros Hike

Get back to nature in the volcanic landscapes of Terceira Island on an approximate 2.5-hour hike along the Mistérios Negros trail. Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in Angra do Heroismo or Praia da Vitória, and then make your way to the start of the trail. Set off on a moderate level circular trek of 5 kilometers to see different landforms created by the ancient lava flows. Encounter small lakes and volcanic domes, along with the Pico Gaspar climb up a volcano that erupted 15,000 years ago. Called Mistérios Negros due to the dark lava rock surrounding the area, the area is not to be missed. Follow the trail through different vegetation, including Japanese cedar, juniper and blueberry plants. Keep a look out for the local birdlife as you fill your lungs with fresh country air.
