Azores islands are unlike any other destination in the world... Once you come you will want to come back!
"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 - 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.
