Overview

Fall in love with Flores, the most beautiful island of the Azores archipelago. Here you’ll find stunning verdant terrain, beautiful flora and wonderful mountain lakes. The landscape has deep creases formed by aeons of volcanic activity. Waterfalls plunge down green cliffs into the ocean, and tiny whitewashed villages nestle on the coastal plains.

A holiday on Flores feels like an escape from the world. Take an island tour with one of our local expert guides, walk the wonderful west coast path through amazing volcanic sea cliffs, relax at a restaurant on the ocean shore at the western edge of Europe.

If you’d like some holiday ideas, you’ll find Flores features in our Flores Activity Holiday, our São Miguel, Flores and Faial island hopping holiday, our adventurous Canyoning holiday, and our Honeymoon Adventure.

All of our holidays are tailor-made for you so you can either use these ideas as a starting point, or call us for advice as to how to fit wonderful Flores into your ideal trip with us – we’re on 01768 721020, or if you’re calling from the States we’ve a toll-free number 1-800-490-0446.

Highlights

Stay in the western-most village in Europe, Fajã Grande. It's just gorgeous, backed by a natural bowl with myriad cascades, tropical foliage and romantic pools. Fajã Grande is also the mid-way point for the spectacular west coast walking trail.
Visit the fascinating Whaling Museum in the little capital of Santa Cruz on the east coast. Housed in the former Boqueirão whaling factory, it provides an insight into the old whaling industry.
Take a boat trip for the day to neighbouring Corvo and explore the Azores' smallest island or just explore the Flores coast to witness the waterfalls cascading to the sea and the numerous rocky islets and arches.

Activities

Whether you choose to have a romantic relaxing honeymoon or you want to walk the whole west coast path and canyon down the ribeiras, Flores is a jewel not to be missed.

Accommodation

Stay in stone cottages in an abandoned village brought back to life or a guesthouse at the westernmost point of Europe. Flores' accommodation reflects it quiet natural beauty so be prepared for warm welcomes and unique places.
