Overview

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 and we’ll include four of our favourites. The Azores are one of the best whale watching destinations in the world, and you’ll head to sea with the best crew on Sao Miguel. You’ll also spend a day exploring the famous hot springs at Furnas, you’ll canyon down the waterfalls at Ribeira dos Caldeiroes, and you’ll end your week exploring the great crater at Sete Cidades by kayak and by bike.

Your home for the week is our three-bedroom family cottage at Casa das Pedras in the peaceful south-coast village of Caloura. 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.
