Overview

For a unique perspective on Azorean island life, look no further than our Sailing week from Faial.

Your week begins and ends in the harbour town of Horta, famous for it’s friendly maritime community. Your itinerary can vary depending on the sea conditions, but the plan is to explore the ‘Ilhas Triangulo’ – a triangle of islands comprising PicoSao Jorge and Faial.

Pico is famous for it’s UNSECO-protected vineyards and it’s highly sought-after Azorean wines. Sao Jorge is popular for it’s dramatic coastlines and beautiful walking trails, and Faial is home to some of the Azores’ most visually-striking volcanic landscapes. At sea, you’ll also spend time with the islands’ resident sperm whales, common dolphins, loggerhead turtles and Cory’s Shearwaters.

Your home for the week will be a 37-foot Dufour Grand – with three deluxe cabins (sleeping six adults), the Dufour Grand is designed for unprecedented cruising comfort.
