The ‘Ilhas Triangulos’ are a triangle of islands in the centre of the Azores archipelago – and our Faial, Sao Jorge and Pico self-guided walking holiday is the best way to explore all three islands on foot.
Your holiday begins on the small island of Faial, where you’ll explore the grand Cabeco Gordo caldera, the extinct Monte da Guia volcano, and one of the Azores’ most arresting volcanic landscapes: Capelinhos, where a cataclysmic eruption created a vast swath of new land in the 1950s.
A ferry ride from Faial brings you to the island of Sao Jorge, whose coastal walks and wild swimming spots are only just being discovered by visitors to the islands. They’ve been firm favourites for Azoreans for countless years.
It’s another short hop by ferry to the island of Pico – famous for it’s UNESCO-protected vineyards and the visually striking Montanha do Pico: an immense 2351m stratovolcano which presents a challenging ascent for even the most-dedicated of walkers.
