Day 1
Arrival in Terceira Island

Welcome to the Azores! Pick up your car on arrival and let your adventure begin.

Suggestion for the day:

  • Take the day to stroll around Angra do Heroísmo UNESCO city streets. While walking in this historical hub, its picturesque and joyful vibe will instantly steal your heart. Surrounded by such beauty and vibrance, you’d never imagine that just 40 years ago, on January 1, 1980, a huge earthquake destroyed a large part of this idyllic enclave, leaving more than 70 locals dead. But true to the Azorean spirit, the Terceirenses did not let this natural disaster destroy them. Instead, they rose from the rubble and immediately started rebuilding, soon creating their unique island legacy. As they rebuilt, the islanders paid extra attention to Angra do Heroísmo’s historical center, carefully preserving the majority of its original architectural features.

While in the western part of the island, treat yourself to the rejuvenating experience of an ocean thermal bath at Ferraria.

In the afternoon, from 5 PM to 6 PM:

  • Azorean Gin Masterclass Experience (included in your package): Led by esteemed gin expert and host, Ali Bullock, at the Solar Branco Estate, prepare to be immersed in a world of flavors and stories. Indulge in a curated tasting featuring the finest gins from the Azores and Portugal, as Ali regales you with tales of gin's illustrious past and its modern resurgence. Sample three exquisite Azorean gins, each expertly paired with hand-selected tonics and garnishes to elevate their unique profiles. As you sip and savor, tantalize your taste buds with light snacks specially chosen to complement the tasting experience.

Suggestion for the day:

  • Visit Lagoa do Fogo & Furnas: Venture to the island's northern expanse, where you'll encounter the untouched charm of the Protected Natural Reserve of Lagoa do Fogo.

From 1 PM to 4 PM: Whale Watching in Rabo de Peixe

  • 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 end of the day:

  • Say Goodbye to the Azores with a Fado Dinner: A captivating and deeply emotional experience that combines the soulful melodies of Fado music with delicious Azorean cuisine. As you enter a cozy, dimly lit restaurant, you'll be enveloped in an atmosphere of nostalgia and tradition. The hauntingly beautiful strains of Fado, performed by local musicians, fill the air, evoking a profound sense of saudade—the Portuguese longing for something lost.

We hope you had a fantastic time in the Azores and look forward to traveling with you again in the future!

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. 

Terceira Island

Striking the perfect balance between lush volcanic landscapes and seaside cities with charming European vibes, you will be pleasantly surprised by Terceira island. Classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, Terceira's capital city of Angra do Heroísmo is dotted by historical buildings, colorful houses, restaurants, shops, and cafes that you'll love to discover. Head across the island to visit the seaside town of Praia da Vitória to take in the sights: a beautiful black sandy bay, picturesque cobblestone streets and the breathtaking Serra do Cume, one of the best views on the island.

São Miguel Island

São Miguel Island, the largest of the Azores archipelago and its economic and administrative center, is a beautiful green jewel in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. With stunning lush landscapes, exotic plants, dormant volcanoes, hot springs, and surrounded by clean waters, São Miguel is the perfect vacation destination for nature lovers and those looking for an off-the-beaten-path European destination. Explore the island and marvel at its natural beauty. Hike down a dormant volcano and relax on the beach surrounding its lake. Visit the only tea plantation in Europe and taste delicious locally-grown pineapple. Discover the historical city of Ponta Delgada with its cobbled streets and black-and-white mosaic pavements.
