On this self guided walking holiday, you’ll be based in Horta on Faial, Madalena on Pico and Velas on São Jorge. Our friendly drivers will drop you off at the start of each walk and pick you up later that day at a prearranged time and place. We’ll provide you with detailed route maps and instructions so you can explore at your leisure.
These three central islands offer some of the best walking in the Azores including the stunning fajã walk on São Jorge, a walk around the crater on Faial and a visit to the 1957 eruption site at Capelinhos. There is a regular ferry service between the islands so you will be using it to island hop which adds to the sense of exploration.
