Beautiful climb with great views over the island and the lake. At the hairpin bends, the climb is the most difficult, but after that there are several viewpoints that make it more than worthwhile.

The road surface is good and the road is mainly used for tourist traffic. I learnt that due to parking problems, the road is not accessible to rental cars's from June to September between 9am and 7pm and tourists are therefore obliged to go up by shuttles.

Mooie klim met mooie uitzichten over het eiland en over het meer. Bij de haarspeldbochten is de klim het lastigste, maar daarna zijn verschillende uitzichtpunten die het meer dan de moeite waard maken.

Het wegdek is goed en de weg wordt voornamelijk voor toeristisch verkeer gebruikt. Ik heb vernomen dat vanwege parkeerproblemen de weg van juni tot september tussen 9 en 19h niet toegankelijk is voor huurauto's en dat de toeristen daarom verplicht zijn om met shuttles omhoog te gaan.

A tough climb to the beautiful mountain lake Lagoa do Fogo. Fogo is Portuguese for Fire. Of course, this refers to the volcanic origin, it is a crater lake. The climb is already tough, with some 9% km on average, but the last few kilometres at the hairpin bends are the steepest. However, after the mirador and the summit, you have an additional addition to the transmission tower, where it is even steeper and rougher. I couldn't resist tackling that section too, even though it was at my gums.

Een pittige klim naar het mooie bergmeer Lagoa do Fogo. Fogo is Portugees voor Vuur. Dit slaat natuurlijk op de vulkanische oorsprong, het is een kratermeer. De klim is al pittig, met zo'n 9 km aan 9% gemiddeld, maar de laatste paar kilometers bij de haarspeldbochten zijn het steilste. Echter heb je na de mirador en de top nog een extra toevoeging naar de zendmast, waar het nog steiler en ruwer wegdek is. Ik kon het niet laten om dat stuk ook nog even mee te pakken, al was het op mijn tandvlees.

Nice, steep climb to this volcanic lake. Nice view on the island and on the surrounding Atlantic Ocean. Along the road edge many flowering hedges can be seen, and this in a beautiful green landscape.
Some caution is required, the inhabitants of the Azores are not used to encounter cyclists.
As a dessert' you can do the climb up to the weather tower on a gravel path with an incline of approximately 30%

Leuke, stilaan oplopende klim naar dit vulkaanmeer. Mooi uitzicht op het eiland en op de omliggende Atlantische oceaan. Langs de wegrand zijn veel bloeiende hagen te zien, en dit in een prachtig groen landschap.
Enige voorzichtigheid is geboden, de inwoners van de Azoren zijn het niet gewoon fietsers tegen te komen.
Als 'toetje' kan je boven nog eens extra de klim rijden naar de weertoren rijden op een grindpad met een stijgingspercentage van ongeveer 30%
