- Our holidays are tailor-made and it's easy to include a few nights in the Portuguese capital - travelling via Lisbon also allows you to fly directly into some of the Azores' smaller islands: Faial, Santa Maria and Pico.

Getting around Azores
Air - All nine islands are connected by local airline SATA Air Azores. They operate like bus services, making island hopping easy. Ferries - Ferry services around the central islands of Faial, Pico and São Jorge are very reliable. For longer distances, (from Sao Miguel to Flores, for example) we recommend a SATA flight. Car - Hire cars are available on all islands, and Azorean roads are generally quiet and well sign-posted. Taxis - If you'd prefer not to drive, we can include airport transfers with our english-speaking and guided tours of all nine islands. Bus - Bus services on the main island of Sao Miguel are good. On the smaller islands, buses tend to be timetabled around the school run - we find a hire car or taxis work better.
