Azores at a glance

  • This breath-taking Portuguese archipelago is made up of nine amazing volcanic islands in the North Atlantic Ocean, each with its own personality and points of interest. With such a striking landscape, it is no wonder that an Azores Adventure Holiday is becoming ever more popular.

  • With stunning coastline and unspoilt natural beauty, you are constantly reminded of its geographical past with ancient (and dormant) volcanic craters dotting the landscape.

  • Known as one of the best places in the world to whale watch and see dolphins the Azores makes for a great family adventure holiday destination or a stunning spot for a couple to indulge in both adventure and relaxation.
