Imagine an archipelago in the Atlantic where the volcanic mountains covered in lush vegetation rise above the clouds and the waterfalls gush from great height. This is a place where its large lagoons of emerald green waters and ancient volcanic craters are of a unique beauty. A destination where you can swim in natural pools in the middle of the ocean as well as come close to the great whales that travel in our seas. We present to you the Azores Islands, considered by the prestigious magazine “National Geographic Traveler” as the “Top Two Island Destinations”.
In partnership with Walk Hike Portugal, we are proud to announce a NEW hiking adventure in the Azores. Guided by Francisco Mendonça, whom will share with you his love of these dramatic islands and introduce you to its hardy people that over time have been influenced by its isolation.
The Azores an autonomous region of Portugal is a breathtaking archipelago made up of 9 volcanic islands in the mid-Atlantic. This exclusive hiking adventure explores two islands, Flores and Corvo making up the Western group of the archipelago.
Although Flores is a small island that is only 17km long and 12km wide with 911m of height, it is surely one of the most beautiful places in the world for walking. With impressive cliffs that reach several hundred meters high and a profusion of plant life that extends to the ocean your journey is filled with endless views.
About 18km away is Corvo Island, the smallest of the archipelago and still a highlight of the trip. Corvo is one of the most isolated places in the entire European continent with a little more than 400 inhabitants in its unique village. You will hike into Its enormous and disproportionate Caldera more than 2km in diameter, that makes this island a “must”, where the beauty of its walls with the Atlantic behind has no equal.
