In the blue expanse of the Atlantic, Mother Nature created a land full of natural beauty and ready to be explored: the Azores Archipelago.

In the east, on the island of Santa Maria, the beaches are warm and of light sand, and the vineyards that cover the slopes in the amphitheater resemble staircases for giants. São Miguel, the largest island, enchants with its Lagoons of Sete Cidades and Fogo. The force that the land exudes is felt in the geysers, in the hot thermal waters and in the volcanic lakes, as well as in the tasty “Cozido das Furnas” slowly cooked in the interior of the land.

In the Central Group, the Terceira, São Jorge, Pico, Faial and Graciosa Islands are harmoniously arranged in the blue sea where whales and dolphins lurk, delighting visitors. Terceira talks about history in Angra do Heroísmo, classified as World Heritage, and also in its parties. Faial is the fresh blue of the hydrangeas, the marina colored by the paintings of yachtsmen from all over the world and the Capelinhos volcano, which, now extinct, resembles a lunar landscape. Ahead, Pico, the mountain that rises from the sea with its vineyards planted in black lava fields. In São Jorge, the highlight is the Fajãs and their cheese, a unique specialty with an unmistakable flavor. Graceful in name and appearance, this green island has fields covered with vineyards that contrast with its peculiar windmills.

In the Western group, on Flores Island, we are dazzled by the beauty of natural waterfalls and lagoons excavated by volcanoes. Corvo, the miniature island, has at its center a large and beautiful caldera and attracts several species of birds coming not only from the European continent but also from the American.

These are the Azores. Nine islands, nine small worlds, which have as much in common as different, but where the sympathy of its inhabitants is shared by all.
