Our Sao Miguel, Flores & Faial island hopping holiday combines three of the Azores’ most-popular islands into the perfect two-week trip.
Your holiday begins on Sao Miguel in Ponta Delgada: capital of the Azores and one of Europe’s most-welcoming cities. You’ll spend time at sea on a whale and dolphin watching trip, and we’ll provide you with a hire car so you can explore the iconic landscapes of Sao Miguel – including the great crater at Sete Cidades.
Leaving Sao Miguel, your island hopping begins with a flight to Flores – with it’s arresting landscapes and relaxing isolation. You’ll be staying the quiet west coast village of Fajã Grande, between the lofty cliffs and waterfalls of the Ribeira do Ferreiro and the rolling Atlantic Ocean. You’ll also have a chance to explore the wider island on a jeep tour with our resident guide.
From Flores, you’ll fly to the island of Faial – to the harbour town of Horta. Once a crucial resupply point for trans-Atlantic trading ships, Horta is a picturesque seaside town with a colourful maritime feel. One of the Azores’ most striking volcanic landscapes is here: the barren Capelinhos peninsula, created during a year-long volcanic eruption in the late 1950s – and you’ll explore the whole of island with our resident guide.
It’s a short hop from Faial back to Sao Miguel – ending your trip in semi-tropical Furnas, with it’s botanical gardens and famous volcanically-heated swimming pools, where you can relax and plan your next island hopping holiday to the Azores.
