This is such an unusual place to visit with the volcanic activity (bubbling mud holes, steam holes, smell of sulphur and the natural water springs). Don't miss the thermal baths.

Pure Azores picked us up from our hotel. We spent a full day touring the east end of the island; thermal pools at Furnas, a traditional lunch that had been cooked underground, beautiful vistas. Miguel is enthusiastic and informative. He went above and beyond to ensure the happiness of his clients!
