Destination

Discover an exotic corner of Europe where life remains refreshingly civil and unhurried! Located in the mid-Atlantic Ocean, the Azores islands are renowned for their stunning volcanic and coastal scenery and wildlife. Walkers will appreciate the unusual landscape with its green mountains, shimmering lagoons, exuberant wild flowers and exotic plants, thermal springs and geysers, dramatic coastline and pretty villages. Our walks have been designed to be interesting and fun but not overly strenuous so that you’ll still have the time and energy to take in some of the Azores’ other highlights such as dolphin and whale watching, sea fishing or visiting the famous botanical gardens.
