Whale watch from the islands of Faial, Pico, Sao Miguel or Terceira
Sperm whales are resident to the Azores and so can be seen year-round, but the best time to go is in the spring when there’s a chance to see the visiting Humpback, Minke, Fin and even Blue Whales. If you’re a Whale superfan then our Whale and Dolphin Research Trips are the ones for you!
A midnight swim in an outdoor thermal pool heated by a volcano!
The eastern caldera of Furnas on Sao Miguel is where the volcanic activity of the islands is most on display. Residents of the Terra Nostra Garden Hotel have 24hr access to the grounds and pool … and so a midnight swim under the stars is not out of the question….
Island hop amongst the clouds
Flying past Pico Mountain (2,251m) with views to Sao Jorge, Terceira, Graciosa and Faial is an amazing experience. It’s only when you visit more than one island that you really get under the skin of the Azores archipelago. There are nine islands each with their own distinct character and feel, and each with equally proud and friendly residents waiting to welcome you to their home.
