Azores Holidays 2020

Created by volcanic eruptions, the nine islands of the Azores hold an enviable position in the Atlantic Ocean, nestled between Europe and North America. Lying 1500 km off the coast of Lisbon, these Portuguese islands are a unique holiday destination, with dramatic landscapes and stunning scenery.

Azores holidays offer something a little different; you can spend your mornings swimming in the deep blue waters off the islands’ spectacular coastlines, your afternoons hiking around the rugged landscape and reaching mountainous peaks, and your evenings experiencing the incredible Azores nightlife.

We offer a fantastic range of holidays to Sao Miguel, Azores; the biggest of the islands with everything from natural hot springs to historic 16th century forts. Our cheap holidays to the Azores are ideal for that extra special getaway, transporting you to a truly exclusive destination for amazingly affordable fares.

Things to do in the Azores

Things to do in the Azores

With most of the 250,000-strong Azorean population living in the Sao Miguel capital of Ponta Delgada, this authentically Portuguese city, located close to the island’s airport, has plenty to offer visitors.

  • One of the best things to do in the Azores is simply to take a look at the incredible nature that’s all around you. Dolphins and whales flock here, and there are many options for taking diving tours off the coast, or even shark adventures for those travellers looking for something more adrenaline-pumping!
  • Sightseeing is popular in the Azores, and there are many amazing places to see on Sao Miguel island, such as the natural hot springs in Furnas, the unbelievable rich blue waters of the Lagoa do Fogo crater lake, and the rugged valleys of Nordeste. You could even plan a visit to the Gorreana tea factory.
  • Island hopping in the Azores is also a hugely popular activity. While Sao Miguel is a great destination, each of the islands has its own distinct character and culture, with a huge variety of different attractions. If you only have time to see one other island, Terceira is a firm favourite of travellers to the Azores.
Azores cultural highlights

Azores cultural highlights

The Azores culture is truly unique, influenced by Portuguese ruling and proximity to southern Europe, yet completely independent in terms of its own history. It’s a rich, fascinating culture waiting to be explored.

  • The islands of the Azores are primarily Roman Catholic, and religion plays a big part in the nation’s culture. There are many religious festivals held throughout the year, including the Holy Ghost Festival, and the Santa Maria Festival. Expect lots of music, dancing, feasting, and celebrations in the Azores.
  • There are many museums across the islands of the Azores which give a glimpse into local history and culture. The Carnival Museum on Graciosa island is well worth a visit if you’re island hopping, while on Sao Miguel, the Carlos Machado Museum showcases the very best of Azorean natural history.
  • If you’re interested in a bit of Azores history, you can find out more about the farming colonists who settled on the islands from Portugal and transformed the region into a rich agricultural area. Today, agriculture forms a big part of the local economy, with major exports that include oranges and wheat.
