Bad smell but fascinating. Forrest around is like from jurrasic park or a fairytail. The food the cook with the heat of the volcanic activity is very basic and ruff.

Nice small park in the city of Furnas with geothermal springs. If you are in São Miguel, it's a must.

This place is a must to see. Stinks of rotten eggs but so worth the visit. Just to see the volcanic bubbles is awesome.

Terra Nostra Hotel in Furnas is fabulous with a lovely restaurant. You are right at the park and have access for nice walks before or after park hours. The Talisman in Ponta Delgada is also fabulous with a lovely restaurant.
