Wonderful place to be and see if you're a nature lover. Beautiful lake and surrondings. Must try and enjoy the local food; "Cozido das Furnas", Boilled vegetables and meats on a ground vulcanic crater.

The lake at Furnas is huge, the surrounding areas are green and lush and the miradouro on top offered some impressive views. Did not see much from the village as I was passing through, but the hot springs should also be given a try!

It's truly a unique experience to eat the traditional stew cooked underground in the hot earth. The views are out of this world. I just wish I had had time to bathe in the thermal springs, hopefully next time.

Killer views from atop the mountain overlooking the lake. Thermal springs and beautiful cedar forests--what's not to enjoy?! Highly recommend this scenic area. There are even a few tea plantations you can explore.

Terra Nostra Hotel in Furnas is fabulous with a lovely restaurant. You are right at the park and have access for nice walks before or after park hours. The Talisman in Ponta Delgada is also fabulous with a lovely restaurant.

It is on the island of Sao Miguel in the Azores. We flew directly from England but I understand there is a flight to Ponte del Garda ( the capital ) from Faro. Furnas is about a 40min taxi ride away from that airport. Well... More
