Each island of the Azores has it’s unique appeal, but only Sao Miguel has it all – volcanoes and crater lakes, rugged Atlantic coastlines, volcanic hot springs and a wealth of marine wildlife.
Being the largest island, Sao Miguel has a huge range of activities and excursions for you to choose from, and you can pick & mix from the four activities that most appeal from the list below:
Whale and dolphin watching – theAzores are one of the best whale watching destinations in the world, and we work with the best crews on Sao Miguel.
Jeep tours – spend a day with our resident guide exploring the hot springs at Furnas.
Horse riding – Christina and her team at the Quinta da Terca stables are great at accommodating all abilities and riding experience.
Canyoning – abseiling down the waterfalls of the Ribeira dos Caldeiroes.
Kayaking & biking – explore the great crater at Sete Cidades.
We have an excellent selection of hand-picked properties for you to choose from – some modern, some traditional depending on your preference and we always advise booking early. We’ll also include a hire car during your stay so you can explore the island at your leisure, giving you a nice balance between active days and time to enjoy the relaxing pace of Azorean life.
In the afternoon, you could drive over the high Pico da Barrosa mountain pass (947m) - weather permitting, there’s a wonderful panoramic view of the north and south coasts. Heading down towards the north coast, you might like to stop for a dip in the geothermal pools at Caldera Velha.
There are over thirty springs and geysers dotted around the village - the largest and most famous pool is at Terra Nostra Botanical Gardens.
