With its lush green scenery, clear deep blue waters and fantastic volcanic heritage, the Azores are a paradise for anyone seeking thrilling outdoor activities in unspoiled nature. From hiking along beautiful water-filled volcanic craters, canyoning in lush green nature parks, cycling along the panoramic coastline or simply relaxing in the soothing warm thermal waters and enjoying local gastronomy, the opportunities on land are endless. If you prefer to take to the waters, snorkeling, diving, coasteering and marine wildlife tours are widely available around most islands.
Thanks to its mild climate, the Azores are a great destination to visit all year round and temperatures rarely drop below 10 degrees even in winter.
The nine islands are small in size and easy to get around with traveling distances mostly under 50kms. While it is easy to connect from island to island by plane, some of the central islands can also be easily visited by ferry.
