A remote, volcanic land of bubbling hot
springs, steaming fumaroles and sub-tropical
forests: the Azores beg for exploration.
This itinerary offers an unforgettable
adventure, taking in the incredible island
landscapes of Terceira, Faial and São Miguel.
Then it’s on to the Portuguese mainland, to
uncover the highlights of Oporto and Lisbon.
Calling into three of the archipelago’s most beautiful and diverse
islands makes the most of your time in the Azores. Stopping at
Praia da Vitoria offers the chance to head to the south of Terceira
Island to Angra do Heroismo, with its 16th century Sé Cathedral.
The views on offer from the 205 metre-high Monte Brasil Volcano,
which overlooks this UNESCO-listed town, are not-to-be-missed.
An unspoilt landscape of volcanic craters, lakes and valleys
awaits your exploration on hard-to-reach Faial Island. The
Capelinhos Volcano is the most famous landmark here. While
Black Watch is docked in Horta you can see this magnificent
natural wonder in all its glory on a scenic island drive or
exhilarating 4x4 adventure.
The volcanic landscapes of São Miguel Island are yours to
explore too, during a day in Ponta Delgada. The extinct Sete
Cidades Volcano – one of the ‘Seven Natural Wonders of
Portugal’ – is a remarkable sight, with its 13 kilometre-wide
crater and glistening lakes filled with vibrant blue and green
waters. After the Azores you’ll head for home via two captivating
ports on the Portuguese mainland: the picturesque capital,
Lisbon, and Leixões – gateway to charming Oporto.
