Possibly the most amazing views i have seen in Azores. Beautiful area to stay a few hours and walk for a little or make a pic-nic. Espectacular!

Spectacular views from a mountain ridge. A few of the lagoons around Sete Cidades will be seen along with green pastures and steep mountain sides. The trail, although somewhat steep, is very walkable. On a sunny day there is nothing more beautiful.

I visited Canario twice on this trip, and on both occasions found the solitude I required. Skipping breakfast is the best way to have this place between your quiet thoughts and the lifting mists. I walked down to the water's edge down both access points...More

Many people post for this lake experience from Boca do Inferno viewpoint with an amazing view of the two lakes and Sete Cidades but that is not Lake Canario. This is the lake just 1 minute walk down from the parking lot close to the...More

This is a beautiful lake and by far my favourite from my trip. It was hidden in the midst of a thick brush of trees and I recommend going to see it.

You can park out on the edge of the main road and have an enjoyable short hike, or turn in, follow the cinder track as far as you can then follow the path up the steps. Whatever you choose, take your camera. Possibly one of...More

The entire São Miguel Island is really impressive, but this probably was my favorite spot from all the island. I think it is also called Miradouro da Grota do Inferno and after you find the Lagoa on the left side you should keep walking and...More

Peace and quiet in an astonishing landscape. The colours are marvellous. Silence is all around us. As well as beauty.

Forget the small lake, drive to the bottom of the dirt road and find the view point path. It is up some steps, not bad if you are in moderately good condition, most spectacular view imaginable on a clear day.

Amazing view, but you need to be lucky to find a day without fog! You can park in the road but there's parking near the viewpoint and it will save you a 500m walk Even with the fog it's an amazing place to go!!
