Caldeira velha and Lagoa do fogo

There is definitely no shortage of stunning natural scenery on the island of São Miguel. And when the weather cooperates, you simply have to grab a chance.It was a perfect day – you can’t ask for better! So, we took a taxi and for 50 euros we were able to visit two amazing places: Caldeira velha and Lagoa do fogo. First we went to Caldeira velha, which is actually on the way to Lagoa do Fogo from Ribeira Grande.

After many twists and turns and some breathtaking views, this is what we saw….DSC02576Just like us, even this dog seemed to be mesmerized by the volcanic lake. DSC02606
