Fantastic Azore Islands September

 

What is waiting for us during our journey?
--------------------------------------- 

 

FANTASTIC LOCATION 


We head to a place that combines green hills and mountains, wild verses of the ocean, the bright colors of port towns, panoramic views, open from the rocky trails.

The Azores are literally the former volcanoes rising from the ocean.

You will lose the understanding that you are in European civilization.

Its absolutely wild around you, its a small piece of original Portugal in the heart of the Atlantic Ocean.

This is a real magnet for those who crave to snatch the most juicy piece of impressions in their lives. 

 

 

--------------------------------------- 
 
 
ACTIVITIES 


Do you enjoy lazily strolls around the islands, looking at the surrounding beauty. Yes, you will have time for this, but most of the trip will be very active.

We will arrange tracking along the most beautiful mountain.

Watch out to keep the balance while observing the panoramic ocean view or mountain heights.

We will conquer one of them - the highest point of Portugal - the peak of the active stratovolcano Pico. Let's walk among the clouds!

To discover your abilities that you maybe didn’t know about we go canyoning.

And sailing the yacht across the Atlantic ocean we'll look at whales.

Until the 18th century, pirates regularly attacked this patch of the land, where earthquakes and droughts took a place as well. Now everything looks different: piracy is no longer popular, the climate has improved, and Graciosa is called an "island of serenity". There is a carpet of greenery extends all over the surface, low hills and craters of volcanoes. A place to admire, imprinting views on the camera!
