Pam S – January 10, 2020

Beautiful Island Sao Miguel is a beautiful island. This was a small group tour with a very pleasant and informative guide. The scenery is very beautiful!

ArtemisTX – January 10, 2020

Fabulous day I did a private tour of São Miguel with Miguel. It was splendid in every way! Miguel is a native, but has work experience with Disney and thus knows his customer service! He picked me up on time in a snappy Mercedes Benz van, and we enjoyed a full day exploring the natural hotspots. It was delightful. Thanks, Miguel!

Stephanie_R – Azores Volcano was Fantastic! – December 2, 2023

This tour was really nice. We stopped at a Tea Farm, then headed to the Volcanic Caldera, with a view from up top over the lake and in the town of Furnas. It was very interesting! The scenery is amazing!

I have to give a shoutout to the staff because our cruise ship was 3 hours late due to weather, and the tour waited for all of us on the ship to leave. Was very impressed.

Discover the Thrilling Caves and Volcanoes of Terceira Island

Touring terceira's caves and volcanic wonders.

The genesis of the Azores is imprinted in 1766 volcanoes, nine of which are still placidly active. In the subsoil, there are almost 300 known volcanic cavities, in the form of caves, algares, and crevices. In the landscape, you'll find dry calderas, crater lakes, fumarolic fields, and hot springs. The remains of volcanic activity assume spectacular and easily visited forms, particularly in Terceira. Delve into natural wonders like the Algar do Carvão , Furnas do Enxofre (sulphur pits) , and Gruta do Natal .

Discover more about each of these captivating sites with our detailed guide.

We've partnered with experienced tour operators to bring you exclusive tours showcasing the awe-inspiring volcanic wonders of Terceira Island. Discover the island's unique geothermal landscapes and learn about its rich geological history from knowledgeable guides. Learn more below:

  • Explore Algar do Carvão, Furnas do Enxofre and Gruta do Natal in a Van Tour (Tickets Not Included)
  • Small Group Excursion to the Three Vulcanic Sites (Tickets Included)

- Algar do Carvão in Terceira Island

The underground realm of Terceira Island is home to a breathtaking marvel, the "Algar do Carvão", a testament to the island's volcanic past. This majestic cave, once a conduit for molten lava, now captivates visitors with its vast internal space, creating an almost cathedral-like atmosphere. Its most striking features are the silica stalactites that dangle from the vaulted ceiling, renowned for being the largest of their kind in the world. As a highly sought-after destination and a protected natural reserve, Algar do Carvão operates with limited visiting hours. To fully experience its awe-inspiring beauty, it's essential to plan and prioritize this wonder in your travel itinerary.

- Gruta do Natal in Terceira Island

As you venture inside Gruta do Natal, you're greeted by an intriguing world shaped by natural forces. The cave's interior showcases a variety of volcanic rock formations, including lava stalactites and stalagmites, and the smooth, ropy surfaces characteristic of Pahoehoe lava flows. The tunnel-like structure of the cave, extending over a significant length, provides a fascinating glimpse into the subterranean landscapes of Terceira Island. The temperature inside the cave remains relatively constant, creating a cool refuge. Well-maintained paths and lighting systems ensure a safe and enlightening journey through this underground wonder.

- Furnas do Enxofre

On the surface, the “Furnas do Enxofre” (Sulphur Pits) are the eloquent testimony of the power of the Azorean volcanism: the landscape is dominated by fumaroles surrounded by reddish-colored terrain, which contrasts with the green of the mosses and other vegetation. The atmosphere is hot and with a peculiar smell... of sulfur.

Sie des nicht optimalen Wetters 5 Sternen, weil jedem der die Azoren besucht klar sein sollte, dass es hier viel weht, regnet und alle Wetter jeden Tag vorkommen. Wir hatten mit Ricardo einen tollen Guide in einer kleinen Gruppe....3-4 Teilnehmer. Toll war auch die landestypische Küche bei den inkludierten Mittagessen probieren zu können.

Amazing time. My wife and I had an amazing time and we found this excursion great value and great way to see the island! Would definitely recommend!

Amazing Experience! Thank you Diogo and Jose!

Amazing Experience! Thank you Diogo and Jose!

Our two day trip around Sao Miguel was incredible! I can’t say enough good things about it. We booked the tour for myself (22) and my cousin. We did the tour on our first 2 days on the island which was great because it helped us to see everything, where things were, and what we wanted to go back to with the rest of our time. Diogo and Jose were our guides and they were incredible! They both knew absolutely everything about the island, the stops, and answered every question we had with fun and informative responses, they also provided recommendations of other things to do. This tour sees so much in 2 days, however we never felt rushed or like we had too little time. Both guides waited and adapted to allow the group to enjoy the trip and take it all the beauties it had to offer! We also stopped for delicious lunches! I would recommend this tour to anyone and everyone no matter how long you are staying on the island. Thank you again to Diogo and Jose for an amazing 2 days!

Suberb!

Our guide, João, was superb. Very knowledgeable. Great sense of humor. The other guests were great! Everything we did was fabulous. A delicious meal. Bathing at Furnas. A perfect day.

Amazing Time
