Azores Islands. Europe's secret islands of adventure.

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

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.

 

Little wonder then that last year the Azores were named as the world’s top destination for sustainable tourism by Quality Coast, 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.
