Why take this tour?

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.
