Relax in a rock-lined mineral bath, or check out the geysers and bubbling mud at Furnas, a volcanic village best known for its thermal pools and other geological attractions. Located on the island of Sao Miguel in the Portuguese Azores, the town features a large lake in the center, surrounded by the crater's steep sides. For a nominal fee you can soak in the warm pools and use the modern amenities, including lockers, bathrooms, and changing rooms. Wander the Terra Nostra botanical gardens to see some plants native to the island. Be sure to try the local specialty, "cozido das furnas"--traditional food cooked for over six hours in the scalding heat of the steam vents, and rumored to be delicious.
