Hop between the islands of the Azores, all equally lush and colourful but each distinctly different. Whether you're walking or cycling there's lots to explore on an Azores tour. There's volcanic landscapes, charming fishing villages and wildlife-spotting opportunities.
The magnificent islands of the Azores boast verdant hillsides, aquamarine seas, volcanoes and exotic wildlife. Join our small group tours to the Azores to see the best that these islands have to offer.
Our easy-going Azores Walking holiday will take you to five of the archipelago’s nine islands. Head to the island of Sao Miguel to view the topaz-blue and emerald-green twin crater lakes of Sete Cidades and uncover the bubbling mud pools of the aptly named Furnas Valley. Swim in the lava rock pools of Terceira and take a walk down the lush Caldeira de Cima gorge and along the rocky coastline of Sao Jorge to Faja dos Cubres. Keep your eyes peeled for pods of whales on a boat trip from Pico Island and uncover blooms of wild blue hydrangeas on the island of Faial.
