On the Volcanoes and Geology of the Azores holiday, learn about how the dramatic island of São Miguel was formed by massive submarine explosions and spend a week in the lovely Hotel Camões right in the old centre of Ponta Delgada with its cobbled streets and traditional architecture. During your week we include 3 fascinating full day guided tours, all in the company of our expert guides and suitable for all ages.
The Volcanoes and Geology of the Azores tours visit the enormous crater of Sete Cidades with its twin lakes, the crater of Furnas with its bubbling pools and cooking holes and your third day out is a geotour where you will cover other volcanic features in the company of a geologist.
All Volcanoes and Geology of the Azores tours are suitable for all ages. We have even taken our children when they were 4 & 6 years old on the geotour and the guide expertly adapted to their level! In your free time, you can either add more tours or go whale watching or you could hire a car for a few days and explore the island yourself, enjoy some of the gorgeous walks, explore Ponta Delgada with its beautiful churches, gardens and museums or we can arrange some guided tours for you. The choice is yours!
