  • Experience the Azores with the locals

    The Azores are one of the two autonomous regions of Portugal, composed of 9 islands, divided by 3 groups – Western (São Miguel and Santa Maria); Central (Terceira, Pico, Faial, S. Jorge, and Graciosa) and Eastern (Flores and Corvo). They are in the middle of North Atlantic Ocean, they extend to more than 600km of length and they are 1360km away from Portugal mainland, 1507 from Morocco’s and 1925km from Canada.

    The story behind the name “Azores” takes us back to the 14th century when the sailors arrived on the Island. We had a lot of birds in the islands and they thought they were the Azores but after a while, they found out that it was a kite, but the name remained “Azores” until today.

    The weather here is pretty constant and temperate. During the day, the temperature can go around 16 to 25 ºC, depending on the season and in the winter time; normally the temperature doesn’t go below 10 ºC.

    The culture, dialects, gastronomy, and traditions can change considerably from Island to Island. That’s because of the people who began to inhabit the islands and also because of the fruits each Island has to offer.
    São Miguel, the largest Island, has about 759 km2 (about 64 km long and 12km wide) and has around 150 000 inhabitants. In this island, you can find big lakes that can provide potable water, big forests, and a huge diversity of ecosystems and biodiversity, great secondary volcanic activity that allows you to have several areas with thermal baths.

    If you are the kind of person that doesn’t plan anything when you go on vacation, you don’t need to worry! We have a lot of options for you (from rental bikes to tours), so you can explore this beautiful Island, with a local guide! (which happens to be part of our team!)
