Make the most of your visit to the Azores with a split-stay on our Sao Miguel and Terceira island hopping holiday.

When we visit the Azores, we love to hop from island-to-island and one of our favourite combinations has to be Sao Miguel and Terceira.

Your holiday begins in the capital Ponta Delgada, where you’ll immerse yourself in Azorean culture at the Hotel do Colegio – one of our favourite city centre hotels. You’ll also have a chance to explore Sao Miguel’s famous volcanic hot springs, magnificent calderas and secluded crater lakes. Your stay on Terceira at the Angra Garden Hotel has something different to offer: historic architecture, superb Azorean cuisine and many of our favourite wild-swimming spots.

Both islands are well-connected to the outside world, with direct flights from the UK, Boston, Toronto and Lisbon. We’ve suggested a ten-night stay but you could easily extend your holiday to a full two weeks – just fill out an enquiry form and we’ll do the rest.


You’ll begin your holiday with a flight to the main Azores island of Sao Miguel. You’ll be collected on arrival by our driver for your transfer into Ponta Delgada (a ten-minute drive).
You’ll spend your first morning exploring Ponta Delgada; capital of the Azores and the main town on the island. In the afternoon, you’ll head down to the local marina for a three-hour whale and dolphin watching trip. The seas around the Azores are one of the best places to observe ocean wildlife, and Atlantic-spotted dolphins and sperm whales can be seen throughout the year.
You'll collect a hire car to allow you to explore the island - you could begin in the west at Sete Cidades, the largest caldera on the island, with its famous twin lakes: Lagoa Verde and Lagoa Azul. It's a short drive to Ponta Ferraria, where the seawater swimming pools are naturally heated by vents from the Sete Cidades caldera.
You could head east today explore Furnas - the most easterly volcano on Sao Miguel, famous for its geysers, hot springs and the 200-year-old Terra Nostra botanical gardens.
For your final full-day on Sao Miguel, you could take a drive over the Agua de Pau mountain pass - up to the summit of Pico da Barrosa (947m), for birdseye view of Lagoa do Fogo, the 'Lake of Fire’.
You’ll be transferred to the airport for your flight to the island of Terceira. You’ll be collected on arrival by our driver for your transfer into Angra de Heroismo.
For your first morning day on the island, we'll include a walking tour of historic Angra de Herosimo with visits to the Jardim Duque de Angra and the Se Cathedral.
We'll leave today free so you can take a walk to the summit of Monte Brasil - the extinct volcano overlooking Baia de Angra and Baia do Fanal, home to the UNESCO protected fortress of Sao Joao Baptista.
You'll explore the wider island with our resident guide, visiting the Serra do Cume, Praia da Vitoria, Biscoitos and the volcanic caves at Algar do Carvao.
We'll leave your final day free - you might like to personalise your holiday with a kayak trip in Praia bay or a guided walk around the Santa Barbara volcano.
You’ll be transferred to the airport for your flight home
