Overview

New for 2020: our Terceira and Sao Jorge island hopping holiday.

You’ll begin your stay in Terceira’s historic capital Angra de Heroismo: a charmingly-diminutive city with UNESCO-protected architecture and delightful Azorean restaurants. It’s also one of the best-connected cities in the Azores, with weekly direct flights from the UK, Boston and Toronto, and daily flights from Lisbon.

You’ll head to sea on a whale and dolphin watching trip from the local marina, and you’ll have a chance to explore the island’s volcanic landscapes on a jeep tour with our resident guide.

Leaving Terceira, you’ll fly to the nearby island of Sao Jorge for three nights in the Velas: the island’s main harbour town. You’ll tour the island once again with our local guide, with time to relax with a swim in the Piscinas Naturales: Sao Jorge’s coastline has some of the best natural seawater swimming pools in the Azores.

Itinerary

You’ll begin your holiday by flying to the Azores - direct or via Lisbon. You’ll be transferred by our driver to your accommodation in Terceira's capital Angra de Heroismo.
We'll leave your first morning free so you can explore historic Angra de Herosimo - the Sé Cathedral, Praca Velha square and the Jardim Duque de Angra: Angra’s botanical gardens. In the afternoon, you’ll head down to the marina for a three-hour whale and dolphin watching trip.
You’ll explore the island with our resident guide, visiting the Serra do Cume, Praia da Vitoria (the very first settlement on the island in the 1450s), the north coast village of Biscoitos and the volcanic caves at Algar do Carvao.
You'll be transferred to the airport for your flight to the island of Sao Jorge. You'll be collected by our driver for your transfer to your new accommodation in the main harbour town of Velas.
You’ll spend today touring the island the island with our resident guide – with visits to the lighthouse at Ponta dos Rosais, Sao Jorge’s famous cheese factory, Fajã do Ouvidor, the Piscina Natural Simao Dias, Faja dos Vimes and the Café Nunes.
You’ll have today free – you could take a walk up to the Miradouro do Morro overlooking Velas, followed by a refreshing swim at the Piscinas Naturais de Preguica. If you’d prefer a more active day, you can add a kayaking or canyoning session.
You’ll return to Terceira for your final afternoon and evening. Angra has some of the best restaurants in the Azores – we have a handy online guide to help you choose a venue for your last night on the islands.
You’ll be transferred to the airport for your flight home.
