10 Volcanoes

Duration: 9 hours, Length: 27Km, Difficulty level: High

Departure: Caldeira

Arrival: Capelinhos Volcano


The Natural Park of Faial decided to organize, for the boldest visitors, the “trail of 10 volcanoes”, which associates various segments of other four smaller trails: it starts with the Caldeira Perimeter, continues through the Levada, over the Capelo-Capelinhos and ends at the top of the Capelinhos volcano.

You have at your disposal the opportunity to make a long walk where you are able to discover a great portion of the flora endemic to the Azores – from altitude specimens, through medium altitude and characteristic species from ravines and shaded locales. Pay special attention, you can also observe and listen to some interesting animals, especially birds, many of them endemic sub-species.
