One of our most-popular trips is our Terceira and Graciosa island hopping holiday.
If you’re looking to soak-up Azorean culture, Terceira is the perfect choice – her capital Angra de Heroismo is home to some of the Azores’ most historic architecture, museums, religious buildings and many of her best restaurants. It’s also one of the best-connected islands, with weekly direct flights from the UK, Boston and Toronto.
You’ll have a chance to explore the island’s volcanic landscapes on a jeep tour with our resident guide, and you’ll head to sea on a whale and dolphin watching trip from the local marina. One of the best times to visit is during June’s Sanjoaninas festival – a wonderful week of colourful parades, live music, theatre, food and fireworks. It’s one of Portugal’s most-popular festivals so you’ll need to book your Terceira and Graciosa island hopping holiday early.
Leaving Terceira, you’ll make the short hop by plane to Terceira’s smaller neighbour Graciosa for a stay in the pretty capital Santa Cruz – a sleepy little town with a laid-back, friendly atmosphere. We’ll include a hire car to allow you to explore Graciosa’s must-see sites: the spectacular volcanic caves at Furnas do Enxofre and the geothermal spa at Termas do Carapacho. Or you might prefer to unwind at our favourite swimming spots – the island’s coastline is dotted with secluded natural seawater pools.
