Discover More About Azores

The nine islands that comprise the Azores archipelago sit in a long arc along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, and lie midway between Europe and North America, nearly 2,500 kilometres from mainland Portugal. All the islands are volcanic, and the largest is São Miguel, known locally as the ‘green island’. To its south is Santa Maria, which boasts white sand beaches and some lovely forest trails.

Walks take you to crater lakes and along scenic levadas (old irrigation channels) in São Miguel, while on Santa Maria you can enjoy walking through traditional villages and vineyards, by waterfalls and along forest trails. All routes are well maintained, many are relatively flat, and the maximum altitude is about 600 metres.

Most of the Azores enjoys a mild climate, though we recommend travelling between April and October when the weather is at its most stable.
