DESCRIPTION


This magnificent trail begins in the Caldeira Viewpoint, on Faial Island, taking hikers on a superb route through the main attraction of this island.

Throughout its nearly 8km, walkers go around this impressive crater about 2000 meters in diameter and 400 meters deep. The trail is indicated by a dirt track well defined.

Walking this path is a unique experience, where hikers can enjoy breathtaking views of the beautiful green nature typical of this archipelago, between the endemic flora and fauna of the laurel forest. During good weather, you can see the other islands of the central zone of the archipelago, especially the island of Pico.

The path ends on the same starting point, in the Caldeira Viewpoint. After finishing this route you will have a 360 degree view of all the island.
