Azores Islands on the top regions to visit in 2017 by Lonely Planet!

 

"This remote archipelago simply abounds with adventures; it is, in fact, the Hawaii of the mid-Atlantic. It has world-class whale watching, sailing, diving, hiking and canyoning; excellent surfing and other watersports; rich opportunities for cycling, on horseback, or, for the daredevils, by paraglider. Then there is the landscape itself: a wonderland of seething mud pots, fantastical caverns, and vivid crater lakes that speak of a volcanic origin."

Azores Islands in the world's most sustainable destinations!

 

Azores islands are well known for promoting sustainability. They have a rich and protected geodiversity and marine life, natural areas with well-regulated hiking trails as well as an “eco-school”. Renewable energy is also widely used on the island. In the Azores island, rational use of water is supported by the Regional Plan for the Water (PRAA).  

 

Azores Islands - Platinum QualityCoast Destination of the World

 

Little wonder then the Azores were named as the world’s top destination for sustainable tourism by QualityCoast, a European Commission-supported certification programme. In fact, it is the only place in the world to receive a Platinum Award, the organisation’s highest accolade, which recognizes the high quality of the Azores in related topics such as nature and landscape, environment and climate, culture and tradition, well-being and hospitality, among others.


The Azores are one of the most remote and spectacular archipelago on Earth. Portuguese and of volcanic origin, the Azores are a paradise in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

 

Mother Nature has created a land full of natural beauty, ready to be explored, in the blue immensity of the Atlantic Ocean: the Azores. An archipelago of nine volcanic islands in the North Atlantic, an autonomous region of Portugal. Nine islands, nine small worlds that have as many similarities as differences, but where the friendliness of their inhabitants is shared by all.

 

For in-the-know travellers, the Azores have long represented a beckoning blip on the radar of possible destinations. But most people still know little, if anything, about this far-flung archipelago in the middle of the Atlantic. And yet it is hard to imagine a place better suited to nature lovers, fans of adventure sports, or anyone looking for a beacon of sustainability.
