All About the Azores
The Azores Islands are popping up on everyone's travel lists and it's not hard to see why. Located about 1,000 miles west of mainland Portugal, this cluster of nine idyllic islands is the definition of never-heard-of-it, off-the-beaten-path vacation destination. Touted as one of the most sustainable destinations on the planet, the Azores are chock-full of unspoiled nature, stunning landscapes, exotic fauna & flora, geothermal hot springs and unique volcanic influence, these islands will dazzle you with the breathtaking beauty that exists around every unexplored corner.
Dotted with ancient volcanic calderas, sparkling crater lakes, bubbling hot springs and natural ocean pools formed by lava rock, it's impossible to ignore the constant, beautiful reminders of the volcanic activity that formed the islands. The seemingly magical natural beauty of the islands' many valleys, waterfalls, mountains and lakes will take your breath away. The stark contrast of the islands' vivid green landscapes and crystal clear, blue hues of the Atlantic will dazzle you.
Marvel at the magnificent sea life that call the Azores' waters home, including blue, humpback and sperm whales and over a dozen species of dolphins. While you're at it, don't forget to look up and enjoy the view from the boat! Some of the Azores' most beautiful views are seen from the ocean, so whether you're sailing, yachting or whale watching, come prepared with a camera.
Home to several UNESCO World Heritage Sites and Biosphere Reserves, world-class whale watching and hiking, and quaint seaside towns with European charm, each of the Azores' nine islands has its own unique identity, traditions and charm. Offering fresh, quality dining, friendly locals, unique experiences and boundless nature to explore, the Azores truly has something to capture the heart of any visitor. Whether you're honeymooning, looking to plan the perfect family getaway, or searching for an undiscovered natural paradise, the Azores has you covered.
