Spend a week exploring the Parque Natural de Terceira on our Terceira guided walking holiday.
Perhaps more than any other island in the Azores, it’s Terceira which offers a glimpse of the untamed landscapes which faced the islands’ first settlers in the 15th Century. Avoiding the volcanic centre of the island, these settlers established their new communities down on Terceira’s more-hospitable coasts – and so it remains today.
These ancient habitats are now protected Parque Naturals: to preserve what remains of the native species, vegetation and ecosystems which were once in danger of being lost to human development. Our licenced guides Tiago and Isabel will lead you along their very own ‘off-piste’ network of trails, through laurisilva and juniper forests, and the criss-crossing lava flows which are gradually being claimed by the island’s plants and animals. You’ll also learn about Terceira’s once-flourishing wine industry, hiking through the untenanted vineyards of Biscoitos
You’ll be based in historic Angra de Heroismo – the Azores’ first city and capital of Terceira. With our Terceira Guided Walking Holiday, you can choose between a stay at the Azoris Angra Garden Hotel on the city’s main Praca Velha square, or the clifftop Pousada Sao Sebastiao.
