We meet at the parking at the Lagoa das Furnas. There, you get to know your guide and the rest of the participants of the tour. From there, we walk a few minutes to reach the lake, distribute equipment and brief you about the safety during the tour.
Once on the lake, we paddle on the clear green water for about 2hrs. During this time, your guide explains you specification of the region, especially the origin of the lake and its surroundings.
Our canoeing tour ends at the same place where we met.
