An Island Paradise in the Middle of the Atlantic
The Azores archipelago, with its nine islands, rises from the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and is a place of impressive natural beauty. With volcanos, hot springs, green countrysides, and steep cliffs along the coast – a trip to the Azores is sure to thrill the hearts of outdoor enthusiasts. São Miguel, with its picturesque capital Ponta Delgada, is the largest of the Azorean islands. It captivates visitors with its numerous crater lakes, nestled in areas of untouched nature, and its breathtaking views. The most beautiful lakes are the “Sete Cidades” in the far west of the island and the “Lagoa do Fogo” in the centre of São Miguel.
Beautiful hiking trails and fascinating flora and fauna can be found on all the islands, as well as golden and black sand beaches, and ideal conditions for diving, sailing, and surfing. For an unforgettable experience, be sure to take a boat trip – the odds of seeing whales and dolphins are very high! The comfortable year-round climate of the Azores makes this a perfect destination any time of year.
