Day 1
Arrival in São Miguel Island

Welcome to the Azores! Enjoy hassle-free airport transfers upon your arrival and departure, and for a seamless start to your journey, we recommend booking an early hotel check-in.

Suggestion for the day:

  • Take the day to stroll around Ponta Delgada’s city streets. Ponta Delgada, the main city, is not only the hub of the island but the capital of the Azores. Ponta Delgada evokes all the charms of Europe with cobbled streets, sidewalk cafes, and a thriving culinary scene. 
    • Portas da Cidade
    • Louvre Michaelense
    • Pineapple Plantations
    • Matriz Church

Suggestion for the day:

  • Explore the wonders of Sete Cidades, including Lagoa das Sete Cidades, Lagoa de Santiago, Lagoa do Canário, and the captivating Boca do Inferno Viewpoint. Don't miss the chance to venture to the neighboring village of Mosteiros, a perfect spot for a picturesque sunset. While in the western part of the island, treat yourself to the rejuvenating experience of an ocean thermal bath at Ferraria.

Suggestion for the day:

  • Visit Lagoa do Fogo & Furnas: Venture to the island's northern expanse, where you'll encounter the untouched charm of the Protected Natural Reserve of Lagoa do Fogo. Relax in the rejuvenating thermal pools of Caldeira Velha, then marvel at the Salto do Cabrito waterfall. Journey to Furnas and immerse yourself in its myriad attractions, from the serene lake and Pico do Ferro Viewpoint to the unique caldeiras and Terra Nostra Park. Relish local flavors like cozido das Furnas and bolos lêvedos, and experience a fusion of nature and culture that's truly Azorean.
  • Embark on a Whale and Dolphin-watching ExperienceThe Azores Islands are known for their unparalleled beauty and biodiversity, adored by outdoor adventure enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. But what people may not know is that the Azores is also one of the fastest-growing whale-watching destinations in the world. Located in the Atlantic Ocean between Portugal and North America, the Azores are a permanent home and natural point of passage to more than 20 different types of whale and dolphin species, making the islands one of the world’s largest whale sanctuaries.

Suggestion for the day:

  • Moinho do Félix Hiking Trail & Tea Plantations: This magical hiking trail leads to some magical waterfalls located deep in the forests of São Miguel Island. As you traverse through winding trails surrounded by lush vegetation, you will be rewarded with breathtaking views of cascading waterfalls tumbling down into a serene pool below.
  • Though tea has been grown here for almost 200 years, the Azores have quietly reigned as Europe's secret tea capital. In the middle of the Atlantic, roughly 900 miles from the coast of mainland Portugal, you'll find Europe's only two commercial tea plantations sprawling along the hillsides of São Miguel Island's north coast. 

Suggestion for the day:

  • Visit Nordeste: Discover the hidden gem of São Miguel Island, the remote and enchanting Nordeste.
    • Ponta do Sossego Viewpoint
    • Ponta da Madrugada Viewpoint
    • Arnel Lighthouse
    • Poço Azul Hiking Trail
    • Ribeira dos Caldeirões Natural Park
  • Say Goodbye to the Azores with a Fado Dinner: A captivating and deeply emotional experience that combines the soulful melodies of Fado music with delicious Azorean cuisine. As you enter a cozy, dimly lit restaurant, you'll be enveloped in an atmosphere of nostalgia and tradition. The hauntingly beautiful strains of Fado, performed by local musicians, fill the air, evoking a profound sense of saudade—the Portuguese longing for something lost.

We hope you had a fantastic time in the Azores and look forward to traveling with you again in the future!
