Get a glimpse of nature's best work at Caldeira, a volcanic crater with impressive island views. A road takes you straight to the top if you want to minimize walking. Once there, you can choose to hike around the crater's perimeter or head to the observation deck at the end of a tunnel. Clear weather makes for the best experience here, but if the clouds block your view, try waiting half an hour--that is often enough time to get better visibility. Plan to visit Caldeira and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Horta attractions using our Horta driving holiday planner.

Very beautiful view and a lot of cows. A bit windy.
I went to Caldeira at a bright day and there were no clouds. The views were amazing on my 2.5 hour walk around the crater. I could even see mount Pico and Şao Jorge very clearly in the distance.
