Furnas jeep safari with Futurismo

Futurismo offers a variety of activities on land as well as our tours at sea. Our main activities on land are jeep safaris, walking tours and biking tours. our tours are led by experienced and knowledgeable guides so that you can get the most of your time in the Azores. Our guides show you the most beautiful places and hidden treasures of the island and give plenty of interesting information along the way. One of our favourite tours is the full-day tour to Furnas. This beautiful regions is surrounded by lush green vegetaion and is well known for its hot water springs, fumaroles and ofcourse the cozido (a traditional dish made up of stewed meats and vegetables that are cooked underground using the natural heat of the earth). Below are some photos of our full-day Furnas jeep tour that took place today:

Along the way to Furnas we made a quick stop at the church "Senhora da Paz". Here you have breathtaking views of the south coast of São Miguel Island
