Why we love this deal:

  • The best of both worlds: This combination is ideal because it seamlessly brings together the best of both worlds – São Miguel offers breathtaking volcanic landscapes like Lagoa do Fogo, while Lisbon provides the vibrant energy of city life with the echoing sound of fado. It's a diverse and enriching experience that caters to various preferences and interests.
  • São Miguel Island is celebrated for its breathtaking green landscapes and globally renowned natural hot springs. From the iconic Lagoa das Sete Cidades, the Azores' postcard-perfect spot, to Europe's only tea plantations, this island promises to unveil an authentic lifestyle often forgotten in the modern world.
  • On top of that, Lisbon stands as a vibrant city brimming with culture, history, and amazing food. Its streets are filled with medieval castles and squares, colorful azulejos tiles, and beautiful parks. Travelers can ride vintage trams along winding cobblestone alleys or take a ferry down the Tagus River for picturesque views of the city skyline.
  • Only a 2-hour flight away: The availability of direct flights between these two locations also makes traveling easy, so you won't have to worry about long layovers or extra stops on your way there. 
  • Customizable: Customize your experience by extending your stay with additional nights, opting for a rental car, or adding local excursions to gain a deeper insight of the destinations.

About the Destination:

With friendly locals, exquisite cuisine, sunny skies, charming cobbled streets and a modern vibe, Lisbon is a delightful experience for any visitor. Rich in history, architecture, culture and entertainment, Lisbon has many highlights and places to visit. Lisbon is quite hilly with several viewpoints located across the city from where you can enjoy stunning views of the city and of the Tagus River. Do visit the Cristo Rei and the Moorish São Jorge Castle for some of the most amazing views of Lisbon.

Enjoy also a melodic and typically Portuguese fado show in one of Alfama's Fado Houses accompanied by an elegant glass of Portugal's outstanding wine. Of course, a trip to Lisbon would not be complete without a taste of its famous pastries, Pastel de Belem and pastel de nata. Lisbon is a city for all the senses.

Azores

The Azores are truly the best kept secret of the Atlantic. Only 4 hours away from the US, this off-the-beaten path destination is getting increasingly popular with tourists from North-America, but it is still a paradise away from the masses. Visit the largest island of the archipelago, São Miguel, boasting lush landscapes surrounding dormant volcanoes, quaint villages and beautiful crater lakes. Go whale-watching, explore the island's hiking trails with stunning coastal views, and take a relaxing soak at a natural hot spring. Visit the only tea plantation in Europe and enjoy the numerous water and adventure activities the island has to offer.
