Exciting news for 2020 – Ryanair has announced direct flights from London Stansted airport to the beautiful island of Terceira in the Azores. This now means the UK, Canada and the US all have direct flights to this little island.
Terceira is actually Portuguese for ‘third’ – as in ‘the third largest island’ and ‘the third island to be populated’ during the Portuguese Age of Discovery.
It’s very easy to slip into island life here. The island’s home to the Azores’ oldest city: UNESCO protected Angra do Heroismo whose cobbled streets, historic architecture and friendly population help give the city a wonderfully relaxing, quiet charm.
If you’re looking for Azorean culture and cuisine but without the hustle and bustle of Sao Miguel, Angra’s the place to stay.
And that’s before you’ve started on the activity fun stuff…. Just over 20% of the island is classified as a protected Natural Park, to conserve the Laurisilva and Juniper forests. It’s also a very volcanic landscape, formed by criss-crossing lava flows which have created spectacular cave systems and natural seawater swimming pools…..
Our Terceira Family Holiday is one of our most popular Azores holidays (and it’s also a great option if you’re travelling as a couple). If you enjoy a more active holiday, a good starting point is our Terceira Activity Week.
When the Beagle docked in Angra do Heroismo on its return journey from the Galapagos Islands, Darwin couldn’t resist exploring this sparsely populated island with its rugged interior. Join us in following in Darwin’s footsteps on two wheels, on a self-guided cycling holiday on Terceira, riding the Darwin Trail in the company of our local cycling guide and seeing all the beautiful landscape has to offer.
Or if you fancy a bit of island hopping, start out in Terceira and then head to Graciosa on our Graciosa family holiday itinerary.
