The sea around the Azores provides an opportunity to have fantastic diving experiences. Due to volcanic origins and the distance between the American and European continents, there are stunning caves underwater, thermal water springs, unique vegetation, natural reefs, rocks and diverse marine life. Water temperature is warmer from May until December due to the Gulf Streams. If you love diving or would like to try it, the Azores is an amazing place to have a great experience underwater!
We provide a range of walking tours of varied levels of difficulty and schedules to suit all abilities. Guests can visit the countryside and/or the sea coast. You will pass by lakes, waterfalls, hot water springs, mountains, forests, ancient volcano craters, ancient roads and wild beauty, enjoying the endemic fauna and flora. Trekking is also available in our programs. We offer climbs on the more challenging mountainous terrain. The landscape of the island never fails to amaze!
“Walking tours are a great way to immerse yourself in the breath taking and diverse scenery of the islands”

Geotourism / Volcano Watching
The Azores Archipelago has volcanic origins and it is considered by many to have exceptional landscape due to this influence. Recent eruptions are visible and can be visited. The volcanic origins of the islands created mountains and valleys covered by a luxurious and varied vegetation, lakes in ancient volcano craters, hot water springs, thermal hot water fountains and cascades, stupendous peaks contrasting with cultivated fields. We offer organized trips to several geological interest spots.
