Very important to have some sun to see the color of the lake. Possible to see the view or trek to the beach.

Beautifull nature, and there's a great 'hidden' hike starting near Agua de Alto south of Lagoa do Fogo. Get here early because in high season it will get crowded and some parts are narrow. Superb views of seagull nesting areas. Best go on a clear...More

We took a cab from Ponta Delgada to trail #2 and hiked for two hours up to the lake. The hike was nice with varied landscapes and such. The lake was also very nice and offered a great view. There is however no swimming allowed,...More

The trip up to Fogo and once you get to the top provide absolutely stunning views of the island and the landscape. Most certainly worth the trip

After a couple days of eyeing the fogging cams on spotazores, we got lucky with a sunny clear day! The hike down was longer than I expected, as was the walk to the larger beach around the second bend, but well worth it. The steps...More

The Lagoa do Fogo is an amazing lagoon, the view was incredible. The weather changes very fast, when we arrived we can see the lagoon, but 5 minutes after the fog clear the view. But it worth the effort.

I don't believe there is public transport to the mountain. We rented a vehicle and drove to the top(rim) and then hiked down. I did notice several couples coming from the bottom and hiking up as we were going down. There are... More

There is a paved road going to the top of the hill overlooking the lake, but I really would not see it as a hiking area. You would want to take a vehicle to the top. Once there, you will find plenty of easy places to walk... More
