About the Destination

"The Azores Islands are an unexpected pleasure and a stepping stone into Europe" says the New York Times. They are indeed a real pleasure and a pristine destination unspoiled by mass tourism. Discover the two most important islands of the archipelago of the Azores,  São Miguel and Terceira, with this exclusive price.

São Miguel is the largest and most populated island of the Azores. It is called the "ilha verde" (green island) for its lush landscape,  green pastures and forests of laurel and cedar. Visit the only tea plantation in Europe, marvel at the beauty of the extinct volcanos and lakes, soak in hot springs surrounded by nature, and enjoy a thermally cooked meal in Furnas. Be dazzled by the awe-inspiring views of the island and its volcanic activity. As an eco-tourist's paradise São Miguel offers a variety of hiking trails, water sports and activities (whale-watching, diving, surfing). Have an exquisite meal in one of Ponta Delgada's fine restaurants and enjoy a nice walk on its seaside avenue.

The other island you will visit is Terceira, the second most populated island of the Azores and home to one of the archipelago's UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Angra do Heroismo. The island is known for its bullfighting, jovial locals and festivities, and for its historical and beautiful architecture. Visit the stunning grottoes of Algar do Carvão, take a dip in one of the island's natural lava swimming pools and admire Terceira's fortress and castle. Be sure to taste the Alcatra of Terceira many other delicacies.

My wife and I love the islands for their people, nature and food. There were so much less tourists than other European countries and cities we vacationed recently. We love the fact that there were lots of beautiful places to go without massive crowds, reminding the time when we're travelling through Europe by train multiple time 25 years ago.

Azores Getaways planned a terrific trip for our honeymoon. We stayed in Terceira and Sao Miguel. The length of time on each island was perfect for a deep dive into the major sites and culture of the Azores. The hotels were nice, with friendly staff. We hope to go back someday and explore even more.

Overall, the trip was good. The all day tours that we took on Sao Miguel and Terceira were very informative and fun. Both of our guides, Samuel Rego and Marina, were friendly, knowledgeable and were able to give us a really good feel for what each island was about. The food we had in the restaurants in both cities was flavorful and plentiful.

The Azores were amazing. The history, the culture, the sites, the food were all amazing. Our tour guide on Sao Miguel, Samuel, and our tour guide on Terceira, Marina, were superb. They showed us the highlights, suggested sites to see, offered local stories and history, and were so kind and helpful.

We had a fantastic time in the Azores! Everything booked with Azores Getaways was very easy, we had no problems with our flights, hotels, or rental car. We found it very easy to navigate the islands, and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. I just wish we had more time to see other islands.

Magical, beautiful and inspiring place. Very easy to work with your company -- quick responses and always helpful. My husband and I both had back problems, so we couldn't walk as much as we'd have liked, but having a car on San Miguel was great.

The islands were so beautiful and had natural elements that can't be found elsewhere (the volcano caves on Terciera). The beauty is enhanced by the wild flowers all over and the stone walls. Loved the food, people and places.

It was so very wonderful. We had lived on Terceira from 1972-1975 as he was stationed there in the Air Force. We had always wanted to go back, & this was the perfect way to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed Sao Miguel as had never been there before, & going back to Terceira was like a dream!

It was a wonderful experience! The link I received by email made it so simple to add on excursions, experiences, transfers and more to enhance our trip, all in one spot, and with one single total payment amount. It was a perfect mother-daughter trip. I can't wait to come back to the Azores and bring my husband next time! I think that it would be a great trip for a family with children of any age, as well, because there is such a wide variety of things to do to fit any interest or lifestyle. My favorite activity was whale watching. I would suggest offering a short introductory Portuguese class as an activity, maybe 2 - 3 hours, or 1 hour per day for 3 days. That way, interested visitors could learn some basic words and the basics of pronunciation and be able to practice right away.
