Think of a place further West, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, where nature and vegetation are virgin and wild.
Did you guess? It’s true: the Azores are all this, and a lot more. You’ll find nine places for adventure and nine wonderful surprises, with dolphins and whales swimming out in the ocean, completely unexpected landscapes of volcanic origin or covered in green, tufts of purple hydrangeas dividing pastures, blue and green lagoons, craters of extinct volcanoes and steamy soil. Have you ever seen your meal being cooked under the earth?
Nature invites you to extraordinary adventures, mountaineering, watching the marine fauna and diving. And it also invites you to relaxation, hiking and contemplating the landscape. We want to introduce you with this program to the island of S. Miguel.
S. Miguel is the biggest island in the archipelago of the Azores. Located 25º 30’ longitude West and 37º 50’ latitude North, it is almost 65km long and 15km wide. Its area of 746km2 is home to more than half of the population of the Azores: 133.816 habitants (in 2008). S. Miguel is part of the Oriental Group of the Azores, along with the island of S. Maria.
