The archipelago of the Azores, set in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, is one of the rare places on earth where you get a combination of volcanic and thermal activities, safe and picturesque villages, unique culture and heritage, and unsurpassed marine wildlife experiences all in one destination.
Active travel is one of the best ways to fully immerse yourself in a destination: to get out there and see the vistas, to experience the unfiltered sights and sounds, to breathe in the fragrances of the place. Perhaps more importantly, active travel gets you to interact with locals, and to slow down to truly discover the beauty of the destination. It provides unique perspectives that most travelers miss. And the big reward – pumping endorphins and, when done right, some of the most sumptuous and well-earned meals you will ever enjoy!
