About
This hike in the crater of Chã das Caldeiras allows you to climb to the small crater formed by the volcanic eruption of 2014. It is the youngest crater on the island: the little Pico. In this lunar landscape, vegetation (endemic plants and vines) manages to grow here and there. What a contrasting colored landscape! Another sadder vision is the observation of the destruction caused by the lava flows rejected by this small crater. The inhabitants of the village show courage and return after leaving their buried homes. Somehow, they rebuild their lives next to the volcano, for which they have great respect. This hike offers a festival of the senses. Visual, olfactory (smell of sulfur), an almost silence touched by the breath of the wind. And finally this contact with this soil of rocks and lavas: everything is there to live an exciting "volcanic" experience.

    Stop: 2 hours
    In this lunar landscape of Chã das Caldeiras, a giant crater, a festival of color comes before our eyes. The heat emanating from the ground in some places and the smell of sulfur remind us that the volcano is still active. It is in this magical setting that our little climb will take place. Depending on the client's program and where he or she has decided to stay, the departure and arrival points are flexible. If your accommodation is in São Filipe, we offer you the option "Departure from São Filipe" covering transfers São Filipe - Chã das Caldeiras - São Filipe, with the trek beginning at the entrance of the Natural Park (Antena) until Portela village. If you are already staying in Chã das Caldeiras at the start of the trek, then we offer the option "Departure from Chã das Caldeiras" from the village of Portela to Antena, located at the entrance to Chã das Caldeiras.
