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 tiniest islands of the archipelago of the Azores, Flores, and Corvo, with this special vacation package.
Often referred to as Europe's “Best Kept Secret”, the Azores have become an increasingly popular destination with year-round appeal for travelers. Just four hours from Boston, the Azores are now easier to access and explore than ever before. Striking the perfect balance between lush volcanic landscapes and seaside cities with charming European vibes, you will be pleasantly surprised by the Azores.
Named after the island's abundant flowers, particularly hydrangeas, Flores Island is a magical tranquil place of stunning natural reserves. With stunning lush landscapes, dozens of waterfalls around every twist and turn, exotic plants, dormant volcanoes, crater lakes, and surrounded by clean waters, Flores is the perfect vacation destination for nature lovers and those looking for an off-the-beaten path European destination. Corvo, considered by UNESCO to be a World Biosphere Reserve, forms, together with the island of Flores, the Western Group of the Azores archipelago. Its volcanic origins are evidenced most notably by the magnificent Caldeirão, and it is the smallest of the nine islands, with an area of only 6.5mi² (17.1km².)
The only settlement on the island, Vila Nova do Corvo, is located in a lava fajã which forms the island’s main level surface. It is a picturesque and unusual village which features facades of black stone with white trimmed windows and doors, and narrow streets, locally called canadas, paved with rolled pebbles and weathered slabs. The use of wooden locks on the doors of the houses, made by the craftsmen of Corvo, is one of the remaining traditions that symbolize life on a peaceful island where everyone knows everyone else.
