What you'll do

São Miguel thermal waters are well known to be an amazing phenomenon, a side effect from the active island volcanos. Furnas is a place where these phenomena can be closely observed and experienced in all its splendor. We will take you there, through the beautiful landscapes and hills of the island. Once in Furnas you will learn all about the different manifestations of the active volcano: crater, lake, hot springs, steaming fountains and streams. You can also choose one of the local thermal pools and indulge yourself on a steaming bath, great even under winter weather, that will relax your mind and rejuvenate your muscles (entrance fee included). After a hot bath we will take you to taste our favorite seasonal products (corn, chestnuts) cooked on the boiling waters of the volcano! Or the famous "Bolo Lêvedo" (yeast cake) warm out of the oven. To complete this amazing experience you will also be at the tea plantation, only place that grows tea in Europe, and taste our unique green tea.The perfect day in São Miguel even if it´s raining!

Hi I´m an English and History teacher, and an island guide together with my daughter Monique (a Airbnb Super Host), for 5 years now, in the little paradise island of São Miguel, where we were also fortunate to be born and raised. You will understand why I say fortunate, many of the travelers that come here and stay or explore the island with us, fall easily in love and want to move here right away! My island bursts with amazing volcanic landscapes, thermal activity, luxurious fauna and flora, and endless shades of green. The weather plays a big role in the islander´s lives, since it´s always changing, we can have the 4 seasons in the same day, and it´s much easier to navigate through it with a help of a local. I know all of the island perks, and spots, and my passion is to show visitors the genuine way of living like an Azorean!
