Get ready for the unexpected!

More than just a trendy vacation destination at the top of every travel list, The Azores Islands are a tiny world of their own just waiting to be discovered, savored and appreciated by travelers looking for a truly authentic experience. Comprised of nine idyllic islands far off the coast of Portugal, where time seems frozen in place and nature takes center stage, the Azores are somewhat of a Neverland in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Each of the nine islands that make up the Azores has its own distinct and fascinating identity and charm. With breathtaking unspoiled landscapes, fresh and simple cuisine, exotic flora, pulsating volcanic activity, and a myriad of dazzling sights at every corner, the Azores have become the must-visit exotic destination of Europe.


The mild, temperate climate gives these islands year-round appeal for nature lovers, adventure sport and wellness seekers, food and culture buffs, and even surfers and golfers looking for an off-season jaunt. Beach bums and ocean lovers will be pleasantly surprised by the islands’ gorgeous black sand beaches, natural ocean pools, and world-class diving, but these activities are best enjoyed in the summer when the ocean and weather are more likely to be warmer.

Hyper-focused on sustainability and preservation, locals appreciate and respect the nature of these islands and want to preserve them just as much as they want to proudly share them with the world. Visiting the Azores is so much more than checking into a nice hotel. (If you do it right, you’ll barely spend any time in one at all.)


So, if world-class whale watching, mineral hot springs, endless hiking trails, adrenaline-inducing outdoor activities, delicious food and wine, interesting history and friendly locals sounds appealing to you, the Azores are here and ready to roll out the green carpet for you. Whether you need a relaxing retreat or exciting adventure -- or maybe a little bit of both --- Azores Getaways can help you plan your very own authentic escape to these enchanting Portuguese islands.
