Suggestion for the day:

  • The 7 Lakes of Flores: No tour through Flores would be complete without a visit to each of its seven stunning lakes. The viewpoint of Lagoa Negra and Lagoa Comprida is sure to become one of your favorite places on the whole island, but the lagoons of Rasa and Funda, Lagoa da Lomba, and the Branca and Seca lagoons will certainly not be far behind.

About the Destination:

Often referred to as Europe's “Best Kept Secret”, the Azores have become an increasingly popular destination with year-round appeal for travelers. Striking the perfect balance between lush volcanic landscapes and seaside cities exuding charming European vibes, you will be pleasantly surprised by the Azores. 

São Miguel Island

An exotic green jewel in the middle of the Atlantic, São Miguel, the largest island of the archipelago, offers several places of interest that will surely enchant you. Among a plethora of other activities, highlights you can expect include: a hike down a dormant volcano and relaxing on the beach surrounding its lake, a visit to the only tea plantation in Europe, and getting a taste of the delicious locally grown pineapple. You can also look forward to discovering the historical city of Ponta Delgada with its cobbled streets and black-and-white mosaic pavements.

Flores Island

Flores Island is one of the few official UNESCO Biosphere Reserves in the world, which is special protection given for natural landscapes. But that’s not the only unique thing about it, as this Azores island is known as the ‘’Island of Waterfalls’’, being a favorite of outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers. The waterfall of Poço do Bacalhau, found in Fajã Grande, is especially perfect to dive in at sunset when the mountains are illuminated in the background.

Corvo Island

The smallest of the Azores, Corvo Island, has only one village, which is home to 468 locals, making it one of the smallest communities in all of Europe, but also one of the only ones where you have that true sense of community and kindness. It’s safe to say that living in Corvo is like living in one big family, so if you visit this island, you’ll be heartily welcomed as a family as well.
