The whole walking experience only takes about 20 minutes but it’s an interesting experience if you are passing nearby. Almost no-one else there when we went.

If you are going to the Algar do Carvao nearby I guess this is worth a quick stop. There is no entrance fee. That's good because there really isn't much to see. There is a bit of steam coming out of several fumaroles but they...More

It seems to be that it’s on the first place, but actually out of 2 places :-) If you are going to see the caves it’s very close so it’s worth a check it out but don’t expect anything special.

Went during very heavy fog, it was very hard to see the smoke coming out of the furnas. The circular path was also quite confusing, though quite well kept and with plenty of informative plaques.

we walked all around this area and wow with expert guides from ComunicAir we learnt about the development of this island and this area.

The fumaroles are visible in a well maintained section of the island and a fenced path guides the visitors around. Apart from the fumaroles, many birds and flowers are visible.

Natural geysers can be easly reach due to nice restauration of the vulcano site. Lots of information about the fauna and flora . Worth it!

A very small geothermal site. If you have never seen geothermal activity, and will not do so in the near future, and happen to be in the area, it’s worth the short time it takes to see it. Parking is very close.

You can watch some geothermal activity going on. We have been there on a rainy day so the smell of sulphur wasn't that intense. The trail is very easy and you can easily do it with young kids.
