Self-Guided Packages

Self-Guided Packages are for travelers who are comfortable travelling on their own, with a partner or a group of friends but want a head start by not having to spend valuable time (re)searching accommodations, local transportation options or coming up with a list of things to see, do and (depending on the island) places to eat.

Each Self-Guided Package:

  • includes accommodation(s) based on your comfort-level and budget. All are owner-managed properties dedicated to ensuring that your stay is unforgettable and as stress-free as possible. (Note that only accommodations that meet our high standards are included in the LIFE! Wellness network.)
  • is designed so that each traveler can personalize it to fit their needs whether they are looking for active or adventurous activities or simply a slower paced schedule with more rest & relaxation time – or anywhere in between. It’s totally up to you.
  • comes with a detailed list of island-specific Tips & Ideas that will help you save time and money, including local English-speaking contacts (emails and phone numbers) which will undoubtedly reduce any travel-related stress or anxiety.

What’s not included: transportation, meals, insurance, etc. unless added on as part of a Personalized Plan.

What else: you can then decide whether you want to include:

  • Car rental or pre-arranged local transfers upon arrival or for selected activities.
  • Pre-arranged (or make reservations for) add-on activities such as:
    • Canyoning, Coasteering, Kayaking or Scuba diving along the coast of São Jorge Island
    • Dolphin / whale-watching among the many species found in the mid-Atlantic
    • Sunset cruise on a yacht in the canal between Pico and São Jorge islands
    • Climb Pico Mountain (Portugal’s tallest point) with a guide (full-day activity)
    • Experience breathtaking hikes through lush, green vegetation, beautiful volcanic craters and spectacular cliffs
    • Enjoy countless sites to simply relax and revitalize
    • Relaxation or Therapeutic Massage
