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 with charming European vibes, you will be pleasantly surprised by the Azores. 

Marvel at the geothermal volcanic activity of São Miguel Island and its impressive crater lakes. Enjoy a relaxing thermal bath at a natural hot spring. Taste a delicious thermally cooked meal, known as "cozido", in Furnas, home to fumaroles and geysers. Explore the island's many waterfalls and hiking trails, visit Europe's only tea plantations, and taste the sweet local pineapple, grown only in the Azores. On Terceira Island, explore the oldest city in the Azores, Angra do Heroísmo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visit a 17th century fortress, and spend the day on a dairy farm and taste the local cheese. Dip into the natural swimming pools of Biscoitos, or trek around the protected natural park of Monte Brasil.

Also to look forward to is a visit to the UNESCO protected vineyards of Pico Island. You can also climb the highest mountain in Portugal or simply admire its grandeur from different spots on the island. Visit the interesting Whaling Museum and learn about the island's rich history and past whale-hunting tradition.

We had a great experience and really enjoyed the varied geology of the islands. In the future I would have liked more time on Pico and Terceira. We spent too much time in the airports.
