All reviews extinct volcano unique experience small lake once in a lifetime climb down lava tube places in the world amazing cave limited hours euros per person take your time well worth the effort rainy day natural wonder worth the trip volcanic activity terceira island
You don't have to be in peak shape to visit! This was beautiful from top of stairs all the way to the bottom. There are stopping plateaus on the stairs for a 'rest'. The view from the bottom is worth it!
Never been to a valcano cave before so this is nice to see. Volcano rocks, the little lake down the bottom due to constant rain drop (humidity caused it, I think), and formation of salt rock, they are quite fascinating. It descends 300 steps from...More

One of the top 5 experiences of my life was being inside of this cave. It was so cool to realize that there are only 4 caves in the world that you can actually be inside and this is one of them and it only...More
I've been inside of lava tubes in Hawaii but this is quite different. It's neat to be able to make the descent and find the lake below, and see the long stalagtites. It's quite beautiful!
There are so many stairs but one can go as...More
This was an amazing experience. To actually go down inside a volcano and look up to see where the lava / gases had once escaped. There are steps, but you don't have to go all the way to the bottom to get a feel for...More
