If you’re coming to the island definitely visit here as it’s so beautiful with breathtaking views. Walk down to the lake it doesn’t take long and is worth it.

We had a wonderful time on our jeep tour to Furnas. Luisa and John are wonderful Gate 1 tour guides. We made several stops and viewed beautiful sites. We also stopped at a little castle. Our tour through the tea factory was very interesting.
