Very interesting peaceful place. From geisers to hot pools Spent hours at the natural hot pools. Watched geisers bubble. And ate food that was actually cooked underground. Tasted pretty good😀. If you go to the Azores, this is a must see to really appreciate. And take your bathing suit

The village is picturesque and friendly. The lake green and peaceful. The trail to Pico de Ferra is strenuous and not recommended in foggy weather. But the mineral bath and the views of the Terra Nostra Park are unforgettable.

Great place to visit and probably one the best places to visit in Azores... Two place to see the Furnas lagoon.... To see the geysers and the Terra Nostra park one of the most beautiful parks in Portugal. Also a dip on the ferrous pool is essential.

We visited the hot springs with their bubbling water and mud and felt like we had entered a different world! There are boardwalks so you can meander through the springs - the sulfuric smell is potent and everywhere are holes with spouting and boiling water! Don't touch!! This is also where the famous "Cozido das Furnas" is cooked - a... More

We took a full day tour to Furnas. We saw all the boiling water that smells like sulfur bubbling up from the ground, and stopped to see where they cook the traditional stew in pots underground with geothermal heat. The must see of the area is the Terra Nostra Botanical Gardens with the large hot springs pool. It costs 3... More

we gladly spent half a day in furnasi. first learned about the geysers and then made a fascinating and awkward climb up the steep path to the top of the crater lake. climb was worth spending forces in order to enjoy the scenery. after walking obligatory visit to the restaurant to sample dishes kozidu be prepared in a hot land.

Furnas is a wonderful place to explore. The drive from the airport is magical with hydrangea bushes lining the roads. Start with a hike around the Lagoa das Furnas, visit the fumaroles, dine on Cozida das Furnas, a stew cooked underground and relax in the thermal baths.

Everything about this place is amazing. Seeing the volcanic activity around the lake and how they cook food using the steam , even your feet start to get hot with the heat coming out from the ground underneath. Even around the town itself is full of volcanic activity, you can even taste the volcanic water straight from the ground. The... More
