Lagoa do Fogo walking tour

Yesterday we had a walking tour to Lagoa do Fogo, one of São Miguels volcanos with a wonderful lake in the crater. On this particular tour we eat lunch down by the lake and then we walk back, overlooking the lake and vegetation. After the walking, of 6 km up and 6 km down, we travel around by van or jeep and stop at a few viewpoints both over the lake at Lagoa do Fogo, the Atlantic ocean and Vila Franca do Campo with the Islet. Our grand final was a pause at Caldeira Velha where we had a nice swim in the waterfall before returning to Ponta Delgada. Photos from the trip:

Watch this video and listen to the bird song 

On the way we stopped and looked at several plant species, 
some endemic to Azores, others coming from far like this Eucalyptus from Australia
