Discover the magnificent waterfall of Salto do Prego, the welcoming parish of Faial da Terra, and the remote ancestral village of Sanguinho! In this hike, which begins in the parish of Faial da Terra, we will walk along a beautiful river that will guide us through this charming village with its sensational orchards. We will continue our hike up through the forest, passing over wooden bridges and following our ancestors’ footsteps over cobblestone roads, until we reach the magical waterfall of Salto do Prego – where we will take a break to rest, enjoy our picnic lunch and take a refreshing swim under the waterfall. On the way back, we will pass through the old abandoned village of Sanguinho, which has been gradually recovering its charm and liveliness. Then, we will make a brief stop at the formidable viewpoint of Pico dos Bodes, after which we invite you to: enjoy a refreshing dive in Povoação / Ribeira Quente, OR take a cozy bath in the Thermal Springs of Furnas (at an extra cost) OR enjoy the rest of the time to wander. NOTE: The trail can be quite steep and slippery in some areas. Break time to enjoy a picnic lunch (provided), a couple of hours of hiking and time to swim and relax at the end. This hike is available from November to May. Please contact us for other availabilities. Price includes pick-up and drop-off 8+ years old • Full Day (8h)
