Suggestion for the day:

  • Terceira Volcanoes Experience: Take this day as an opportunity to do something unique: get inside a volcano! Make sure you don’t skip a visit to Gruta do Natal, Furnas do Enxofre, and last but not least, the famous Algar do Carvão! Descend 90 m (300 ft) down into one of the only volcanoes in the world that you can actually enter and explore! Algar do Carvão is an ancient lava tube and volcanic chimney that was formed approximately 3,200 years ago, making it quite a sight to behold. For the ultimate geo-tourism itinerary make sure you don’t skip a visit to Gruta do Natal and Furnas do Enxofre. 

Arrive on São Miguel Island and transfer to the hotel. We recommend booking an early check-in in advance for your comfort.

Suggestion for the day:

  • Take the day to stroll around Ponta Delgada’s city streets. Ponta Delgada, the main city, is not only the hub of the island but the capital of the Azores. Ponta Delgada evokes all the charms of Europe with cobbled streets, sidewalk cafes, and a thriving culinary scene. 

Not to miss:

  • Portas da Cidade
  • Louvre Michaelense
  • Pineapple Plantations
  • Matriz Church
  • This tour begins with a breathtaking panoramic view from Salto do Cavalo, allowing us to appreciate Furnas and Povoação's natural beauty. From there you explore the ancient village of Povoação before embarking on an adventurous trek through Faial da Terra valley - where marauding pirates once roamed! You will also have the chance to come across a mysterious hidden village tucked away in nature’s embrace as well as swim at one stunningly beautiful waterfall or another -- both sights surely not soon forgotten!
  • Furnas, a picturesque paradise that offers spectacular views of lush green valleys, dramatic volcanic lakes, dramatic volcanic craters, and incredibly hot springs. Whether it be trekking up a volcano or paddleboarding in vibrant lagoon waters- adventure awaits at every turn!
  • Sete Cidades Lake is an iconic double-crater lake located on the western side of São Miguel Island in the Azores. This unique natural formation was created by volcanic activity many thousands of years ago, with two separate crater lakes created out of a single large crater. The lakes are connected by a narrow water channel, and their tranquil waters reflect the lush green landscape that envelops them. It's said that anyone who visits this magical place will be forever changed by its beauty and serenity. 
  • Lagoa do Fogo is another must-see spot on São Miguel Island within a cinder cone volcano. Here you can admire breathtaking views of the caldera lake created by centuries of volcanism which fills its interior with turquoise waters so clear they appear bottomless.

Suggestion for the day:


  • Ponta do Sossego Viewpoint
  • Ponta da Madrugada Viewpoint
  • Arnel Lighthouse
  • Poço Azul Hiking Trail
  • Ribeira dos Caldeirões Natural Park

Suggestion for the day:

  • Embark on a whale and dolphin-watching experience: The Azores Islands are known for their unparalleled beauty and biodiversity, adored by outdoor adventure enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. But what people may not know is that the Azores is also one of the fastest-growing whale-watching destinations in the world. Located in the Atlantic Ocean between Portugal and North America, the Azores are a permanent home and natural point of passage to more than 20 different types of whale and dolphin species, making the islands one of the world’s largest whale sanctuaries. 

Suggestion for the day:

  • Indulge in the exceptional gastronomic delights of São Miguel Island, home to some of Portugal's best-kept secret culinary experiences. Spend a day sipping delicious local wines and savoring traditional Portuguese dishes – all against breathtaking scenery.

About the Destination:

The Azores are an archipelago of nine stunning volcanic islands located in the mid-Atlantic Ocean, just off the coast of Portugal. 

São Miguel Island

São Miguel is the largest of the nine Azorean islands and is often referred to as "The Green Island" due to its beautiful scenery and lush vegetation. It boasts a mix of volcanic landscapes, including craters, hot springs, moon-like calderas, dramatic cliffs, beaches, and rolling hills. There are also several unique attractions on the island including Fogo Lake, Caldeira Velha’s hot spring baths, and Sete Cidades Lake with its spectacular views.

Terceira Island

Terceira, known as “The Purple Island” is smaller but no less impressive than São Miguel. Boasting a variety of unique attractions such as Angra do Heroísmo's dramatic fortifications, Gruta do Natal's natural rock formations and Algar do Carvão's underground volcano crater, there is something to discover at every turn on this delightful island.

Angra was very nice. Wasn't expecting a traditional European town. On both islands the natural landscapes were gorgeous, as expected. Overall had expected June to be less rainy but we did luck out in having the rain just miss us most of our stay on Terceira, less so on Sao Miguel.
