São Miguel – Walking trail Lagoa do Fogo
Fogo lake, is the most pristine lake among the biggest lakes from São Miguel island. Reachable only by walking.
The pickup may be done at your accomodation site. The transport for the group will be a van with air conditioning to ensure confort. Having a small group will also make the tour much more pleasing and friendlier.
Our van will take the group to Água D’Alto, an area of the south coast, where we will observe the area of Caloura and where we start the trail on foot heading toward the north. Initially the trail presents an uphill path to get to an altitude of nearly 600 meters. After this climb we find the levada site, where it was doing the supplying of drinking water from the Fire Volcano aquifers to the populations on the island’s south coast. This is a good place to enjoy an almost flat walk and to enjoy the stunning vegetation, including some endemic species. We find the following area of the aquifer and its drainage system. Soon after, we reach the Fogo lake where we lay next to the south bank and where we enjoy our picnic lunch. It is here where you can swim in the lake and enjoy an incredible panoramic landscape over the lake. After the walk, we stop at Caloura shore to spend 30m to relax and rest near the sea.
