Azores Island Hopping AZ

Trip Duration 14 Days
 

Walking on the Azores Islands

Bathed in the warm waters of the Gulf Stream, these nine volcanic islands rise up from the mid-Atlantic ridge. On a series of easy walks we explore five of these unspoilt islands: San Miguel, Terceira, Sao Jorge, Pico and Faial. We discover crater lakes, thermal springs, deep gorges and craggy coastlines. There are also opportunities to take boat trips in search of whales, and to spend time in picturesque fishing villages.

Tour Highlights

  • Sete Cidades - Crater walk to Vista do Rei for stunning lake views
  • Furnas Valley - Thermal springs, natural ovens and bubbling mud pools
  • Angra do Heroismo - Lovely UNESCO World Heritage Site, a town with a colourful history
  • Sao Jorge - Walks through an unusual and varied landscape of cliffs, valleys and gorges
  • Pico - Coastal walk to the small whaling village of Lajes with the opportunity to go whale watching
