Discover the Best of the Azores with Our Exclusive 7 and 10-Day Packages!

Escape to the breathtaking Azores with our exclusive 7 and 10-Day packages that showcase the very best the islands have to offer. These packages offer the perfect opportunity to explore three to four unique islands, each with their own charm and beauty that will leave you wanting more.

The 7-Day Package includes a visit to São Jorge, Pico, and Faial Islands.

São Jorge Island offers the chance to relax in the peaceful port town of Velas, admire dormant volcanic peaks, and even enjoy an invigorating canyoning experience. Choose between a full-day guided tour or an unforgettable walk to the Caldeira do Senhor Santo Cristo (from Fajã do Cubres). And, if you’re feeling adventurous, take an optional boat ride along São Jorge Island’s unique coastline with its waterfalls and grottos.

On Pico Island, visit the UNESCO World Heritage-designated wine vineyards, the nearby wine museum, and the picturesque port village of Madalena. You can even climb Pico Mountain, the tallest point in all of Portugal, or take an unforgettable whale and dolphin watching excursion.

Lastly, on Faial Island, you’ll stand on the rim of a dormant volcano crater and walk through what can best be described as the Pompeii of the Azores – Os Capelinhos. You’ll also take a full-day guided tour as part of a day trip to Faial Island, including a ferry ride across the channel between Faial and Pico Islands.

Experience even more, the 10-Day Package also includes three additional days on São Miguel Island.

On São Miguel Island, you’ll be transported back 500+ years in time with a walk through the historical capital of Ponta Delgada. You’ll also be able to explore the lush and luxuriant vegetation that earned São Miguel the title of the “green” island. Enjoy a full-day guided tour to the unique village of Furnas, where you can relax in thermal baths, savor the local gastronomy, and witness fumaroles. Or, you can opt for a full-day guided visit to the western side of the island including the beautiful area around Sete Cidades.
