This walk will take us to one of the most beautiful lakes of the island. This is a very complete hike that passes through a big variety of native and endemic vegetation. The lake occupies the bottom of a collapsed caldera. In the morning, on the way to the lake, the trail goes mostly uphill, for about 2 hours. We will walk beside a “Levada” (water channel) until we reach an opened area, with big slopes on both sides. A little bit further we arrive to Lagoa do Fogo where you will have the possibility to go for a quick swim before or after a picnic lunch.  After lunch the trail is mostly downhill overlooking Vila Franca do Campo. This hike is considered medium level.
