Highlights of the Azores

Europe’s westernmost point, the Azores comprises 9 Portuguese islands that happen to be some of the tallest volcanic mountains on earth. São Miguel, the big brother of the chain, is righteously dubbed the Green Island, and with a notable trio of enchanting crater lakes, will have photographers squealing with delight. The Vista do Rei viewpoint flaunts both the emerald and sapphire waters of Sete Cidades, Furnas is renowned for its hearty stew, which is cooked underground, while the heart-stopping beauty of Lagoa do Fofo lies untouched in its volcanic caldera.

Being so far from land, there is plenty to see at sea. Engulfing the islands is the inviting, infinite azure of the Atlantic, which proves an ideal base for humpback whales, bottlenose dolphins and tropical shoals of fish to stretch their fins and gills, much to the delight of the discerning traveller. Faial rules the roost for whale spotting but water sports, diving or just a simple splash about is prevalent across the archipelago and encouraged due to the nutrient-rich water of the ocean. There is also ample solace for the adventure seeker on land, including caves, hot springs, lava tubes, mountains and wondrous waterfalls awaiting discovery. Ironic considering the Azores was once an alleged lost continent of Atlantis.

As for the municipalities, charismatic Praia da Vitória has a contemporary vibe. The island itself is a mixed bag with more cows than people and most nights the enthralling Tourada à corda bullfighting traditions ensue on the streets. On a more cultural note, a 16th-century fortress will appease those of a more explorative nature. Elsewhere, keep your eyes peeled for the odd Flemish windmill, which decorates the Azorean landscape nicely.
