Mother Nature has created a land full of natural beauty, ready to be explored, in the blue immensity of the Atlantic Ocean, and it's the Azores. One of Portugal's best kept secrets, this remote nine-island archipelago is best known for its vibrantly colored blue-green lakes, grottoes, volcanic mountain peaks, stunning topography, colorful hydrangeas, ancient fishing villages, thermal springs and vast untouched landscapes. Stay with your crew in a luxurious modern villa, go whale watching in one of the best places in the world to do so, indulge in a private dinner prepared by a chef, and soak up as much of this natural wonderland as you can!
The nine small worlds on the islands of the archipelago may appear to be small in size, but have much to boast about. The Azores are actually the tops of some of the tallest mountains on the planet, as measured from their base at the bottom of the ocean! An ecosystem with unique characteristics, the Azores are also one of the largest whale sanctuaries in the world, with more than 20 different types of cetaceans frequently spotted in the surrounding waters. With majestic whales and friendly dolphins, the blue Atlantic Ocean becomes even more magical around these nine islands. Azores has also won multiple awards, including Europe's Leading Adventure Tourism Destination 2022 by World Travel Awards, earning the title of one of Europe's safest destinations, and being in the top 10 of the best islands in Europe by Condé Nast Traveler's 2022 Choice Award!
