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.
This sleek waterfront hotel is just a short walk along the promenade from the Old Town of Ponta Delgada. Along with spacious, airy rooms with marble-tiled bathrooms, you’ll have access to a heated indoor pool, jacuzzi, sauna and Turkish bath – perfect for unwinding and recharging after an action-packed day exploring.
Soothe aching limbs as you soak in steaming, mineral-rich hot springs surrounded by botanical gardens at this tranquil boutique hideaway in the Furnas area. Inside, expect elegant art-deco touches throughout, luxurious beds, a fabulously fresh buffet breakfast, plus innovative cocktails and Azorean fine wines at The Gardener bar.
