Discover the natural geological wonder of Algar do Carvão and the island’s southern highlights. The name ‘Algar do Carvão,’ meaning coal pit, refers to the walls of the cave formed from dark black lava. You’ll descend its steps down the volcanic chimney into the cavern. Admire the stalagmites and stalactites and the crystal clear lake at the bottom. Later, drive to view the Guilherme Moniz Cauldron, the largest volcanic crater in the archipelago. It’s then onto the Serra do Cume viewpoint to admire the beautiful landscapes of the Azores, before the scenic return drive to Praia da Vittoria.
