If you’re looking for the ideal mix of exploration, culture and cuisine we think Terceira’s going to be the island to visit in 2018.
Our Activity Week is a great way to explore every nook and cranny on the island. You’ll begin with a whale and dolphin watching trip, followed by a guided jeep tour of the island. Getting more energetic as the week progresses, you’ll head into the protected nature reserve in the island’s wilder interior to walk the high Santa Barbara trail (which has amazing views over to the islands of Sao Jorge and Graciosa), and our guide’s own, secret interpretation of the famous Rocha do Chambre walk. You’ll also have a chance to explore the volcanic landscapes of the Mistérios Negros by bike on our Centre of the Island ride.
Your home for the week is the Pousada Sao Sebastiao, one of our favourite hotels on the island, overlooking the marina and the extinct Monte Brasil volcano. If you’d prefer to self-cater, just let us know – some of the best self-catering cottages in the Azores are on Terceira.
As you can probably gather, this is a pretty busy week – if you’d prefer a more relaxing stay on Terceira, with time to explore at your leisure, you should take a look at our Couples Retreat or our Family Retreat.
