Furnas is located in São Miguel Island and it’s one of the most active places on the Island. Yes…active! Azores Islands are volcanic islands which means that there is still some volcanic activity going on in here. In Furnas, you will be able to see the phenomenon a bit everywhere: you have the vapors coming out of the ground – called Fumarolas; the water springs that you can actually taste; the hot thermal waters and the famous “cozido” meal cooked underground. During the day you will visit the Gorreana tea factory, several viewpoints in Furnas, try the “cozido” meal and also get to know the Terra Nostra Botanical Garden and have a hot bath.
