Explore two of the Azores' most picturesque islands on this 8-day holiday to Sao Miguel and Santa Maria. Follow the trails that reach the highest points of the islands and marvel at magnificent views of lush green landscapes, mountains, waterfalls and traditional white washed houses during this walking tour. Both islands are uniquely spectacular. Sao Miguel is home to some of the archipelago’s most iconic natural scenery and is the most popular of all nine islands. Lesser-know Santa Maria, in stark contract, is where visitors will find rural communities which remain virtually undisturbed by tourism.
Designed to introduce travellers to the natural surroundings, walking tours get you under the skin of both the landscapes and communities that call these two islands home, but are not too long or strenuous to require a very high level of fitness. In Sao Miguel, discover the bright blue crater lake of Lagoa do Fogo at the heart of the Agya de Pau Massif stratovolcano, and walk down to the coast to take a swim on the beach. In Santa Maria, discover hidden waterfalls, vineyards and the traditional, laid-back Azorean way of life.
