The Azores

Why The Azores?

The Azores consist of nine unique islands with a fantastic climate, conveniently situated in the Atlantic Ocean between Europe and the United States. Volcanoes, fumaroles and crater lakes provide spectacular landscapes. Lush vegetation, vineyards and colorful flowers give an exotic touch to this hikers'paradise. Travel from one island to the next, visiting the only tea plantation in Europe or the lava tunnel, climb the highest peak in Portugal, swim in natural pools and go whale watching. Relax at the beach, stroll along the streets of harbor villages or towns and try the well-known gin tonic in Horta. The Azores are so varied that they can enchant everyone. Let our sample itineraries inspire you and go island hopping in paradise!
