Azores Island Hopping

  • Hop from island to island and discover the distinctive Azorean culture
  • The dramatic volcanic peak of Pico, the highest point in Portugal.
  • Walk through the green, lush landscapes of Sao Jorge Island.
  • The vineyards of Pico Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • Take in the historical sites and vibrant marina in capital, Ponta Delgada.
The Azores archipelago in the heart of the Atlantic Ocean is filled with lush green landscapes and vibrantly coloured flowers, unspoilt geological wonders, volcanic peaks and dormant craters. This island-hopping adventure takes in four of the islands; Pico, with its dramatic 2351m volcanic peak, lush Sao Jorge with its fertile orchards, Faial, the "island of hydrangeas", and Sao Miguel with its vibrant capital city of Ponta Delgada. Follow trails through “fajas”, fertile headlands dotted with orchards and hamlets. Take a whale watching tour and with luck view sperm whales and dolphins frolicking in the ocean. Discover vineyards surrounded by stone walls of black lava which make up a UNESCO World Heritage Site and put your feet up at the end of the day in small, traditional hotels where you will be sure of a warm welcome!
