Worth it
Mar 2021
For only 3€, you learn a lot about geological history of the island and get to see real "volcano caves". Our guide was very nice.

Really Cool!

Gruta do Carvão it’s a safe and fun activity to do with family or friends! You have a tour guide do explain the nature and changes that suffer. The guide is so nice and fun! It has a few stairs to go to the cave so keep that in mind!

A new discovery for me...

This was a new discovery for me on this last trip to the island. It's amazing to visit and the tour guides are really knowledgable. Worth the price for the visit.

A fantastic way to see what has shaped the main island, even if the trip is shortened due to the pandemic.

A must-go
Sep 2020
If you go to Sao Miguel, you need to visit the cave !!

This is really awesome, interesting to do. On top of that our guide was just perfect : friendly, with a lot of knowledge.

We did the short visit as the long one was not taking place at that time and not sure I would have done it given that I can be claustrophobic.

But I absolutely don't regret to pay 5Euros for the visit.

Great experience!

In these times of COVID-19, you need to book in advance and there is a limit of people per visit. It is a great experience. You really are inside a vulcanic cave, without any adaptations or turistic changes. It is a rare monument of nature.

Guide on the Gruta-Exceptional
Feb 2020
An excellent and very informative and affordable adventure- if you like this kind of stuff, learning about and being part of mother natures art that is. We did not do the long tour however, if the short tour was any indication of how the long tour would go, I would imagine it would be wonderful. The guide on our tour was an exceptional facilitator and clearly thoroughly enjoyed her role. Claustrophobia was not an issue for me on the short tour however, I think the long tour may have jolted my nerves a bit, so do you research before choosing an adventure, to decide which one suits you best. And P.S be respectful, when they say don't touch anything, don't - we all live in this world together, and you don't superseded rules...in short don't be a moron, be respectful and show some integrity. Travel, nature, mother earth and adventure are gifts not a right.

Absolutely a gem! At first we didn't really knew what to expect but that was over in a split second. Just nature at his best. Second to none the most beautiful place of Azores

lots of steps down
Jan 2020
This is easy to miss with GPS. Nice lava tube. Descent of a number of flights of stairs, no option for disabled. The floor of the structure is very irregular, and our guide kept shining light in my face which made progress rather difficult. Photos are permitted.
