Beautiful Flores island marks the westernmost point of Europe. During your Flores activity holiday you’ll discover cascading waterfalls, fascinating walking trails amongst gorgeous scenery, amazing cliffs and beautiful sunsets.
During your Flores activity holiday you will be based in Fajã Grande, a quiet village on the west coast. It’s a grand location, the village occupying the area of flat ground facing the setting sun and cradled by the verdant cliffs some 300m high, with waterfalls spilling over their edge.
Staying at the bohemian Argonauta guesthouse in the village with your host Stefano, you will go out on three guided trips to make the most of your stay. Our expert guides will take you on a canyoning trip lasting 3-4 hours and involving 7 abseils, the longest of which is 20m and 10-20 minutes walking. The day can be tailored for beginners and experts alike. There is a minimum age of 8yrs for the canyoning and no maximum. All guides are well qualified and wetsuits, helmets and all abseil equipment are provided.
The west coast of Flores has a walking trail along it’s length, Faja Grande marking the mid point. Your second day out will be with our local guide who will take you on either the northern or southern section of this path, walking back to Faja Grande from your drop off point.
For your third trip you will have a full day guided jeep tour, showcasing the beauty of this island with it’s blue and green crater lakes, and numerous villages dotting the coastline. Take a towel and swimwear as there will be a chance to have a dip in a natural coastal swimming pool shared by the local marina life.
This leaves you with a day to relax and explore at your own pace – you could spend the day on the shore at the town of Faja Grande, or even take a day trip to neighbouring Corvo island either via an exciting RIB boat trip, or the more leisurely inter-island ferry.
For this holiday you’ll fly into São Miguel, spending the first and last nights of your Flores activity holiday in the central 4 star Hotel Camoes in Ponta Delgada, before flying to and from Flores for 5 nights. The inter-island flights are all part of the Azorean experience!
