About Your Trip

Discover mythical landscapes, spectacular wildlife and delicious food and wine on this six-day adventure in the Azores – the remote Portuguese archipelago at the mid-Atlantic juncture between the Eurasian, African and North American tectonic plates. You’ll be based on São Miguel, the largest island, renowned for having fiery volcanic features and abundant marine life. After exploring the capital, Ponta Delgada, get ready for a series of exhilarating experiences, including kayaking around a crater lake, whale-watching and abseiling down waterfalls. Round off your trip by soaking in hot springs and making 'cozido', a hearty Azorean stew, slow-cooked underground using geothermal energy. All of our trips are flightless in destination, with 100% of all carbon emissions offset. It's just part of how we see the world while being good to it.
