The Best Things to Do in the Azores Islands (2020) | Jetsetter.com

Volcanic mountain peaks. Ancient villages. Bubbling hot springs. Untouched landscapes. No, this isn't New Zealand or the Faroe Islands. The Azores, a remote nine-island archipelago off the coast of Portugal, is an Eden all its own. Don’t forget to subscribe!

For decades, limited flights kept the subtropical island chain cut off from the rest of the world, but new connections are slowly opening up this UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Here’s why travelers should get to the Azores islands now—before everyone else does.

The islands are surprisingly accessible from the U.S.
Getting to the Azores is easier than ever now thanks to Azores Airlines, which flies non-stop from Boston and Toronto straight into Ponta Delgada.

There’s no better place to listen to Fado music
The achingly beautiful musical genre known as “Fado” traces its roots to mainland Portugal, but the moody and dramatic weather patterns that race across the Azores islands make it a match made in heaven. Grab some sangria at one of the local pubs in Ponta Delgada and tune in.

The offshore attractions are next-level
Water temperatures around the Azores islands hover around the mid 70s in the summer and dip into the low 60s during the winter—conditions that attract everything from manta rays to schools of mobula. Whale watching is even better. The waters around the Azores attract migrating blue, humpback, and fin whales, and sperm whales live here year-round.

Why YOU should visit São Miguel, Portugal

If you are an adventurer and love exploring the outdoors this is your island! We recommend renting a car (rentals are extremely affordable). Despite the island being small, some of the well known destinations can take 45 minutes or more to drive to.

The Azores are becoming increasingly popular and with cheap flights from Delta, TAP and Azores Airlines you can get there on a direct flight from a few major US cities. Instead of an extended weekend trip to Vegas- head to the islands!

The most beautiful islands in the world? The Azores Islands, Portugal, travel vlog.

After 30 years of travel I'd have to say The Azores Islands way off the west of Portugal are the most beautiful, unspoiled islands I've seen, particularly Flores island. Together with Iceland and New Zealand they round out my top 3 places for stunning, natural beauty.

REMOTE:
The Azores consists of 9 main islands islands and are about 1,500 klm off the west coast of Europe. In fact, go another 2000 klm and you reach Canada, so they are incredibly remote.

QUIET:
São Miguel Island is by far the busiest with 140,00 inhabitants but some of the other islands have very small populations, like Flores (4,000 locals), and Corvo (only 500 people live there!)

LUSH:
Thanks to the mild temperatures and high rainfall the islands are incredibly green in summer. The amount of wild Hydrangeas and Yellow Ginger-Lilly lining the roads, particullarly in Flores has to be seen to be believed.

BEST OF MADEIRA - 7 days on an amazing island

New to Travelons? Don't forget to subscribe! :-)
This video is a summary of our BEST footage from our trip to Madeira. There are so many things to do on Madeira, but this is what we did during our travel.

We stayed at the amazing hotel Rocamar, east of Funchal (10 min drive). The FIRST day we did some snorkeling outside the hotel. The water was clear, plenty of fish and things to see under water. I even saw an octopus that said hello. See our video just from that experience:

Hotel Rocamar is perfect if you want to stay super close to the sea, with a fantastic view, beautiful sunrises and great service. We even saw dolphins and whales from the balcony of our room!

The SECOND day, we went to hike the Vereda da Ponta de São Lourenço. Really beautiful with friendly lizards along the way. Remember to bring sunscreen and light clothes - it can be very hot.

The THIRD day we went to Funchal, the capital of Madeira. We bought a combination ticket with the cable cars to the Botanical Garden Jardim Botanico. It costs around €30 per person, so it's quite expensive - but totally worth it. If you suffer from fear of heights, the cable cars can be a bit scary. The botanical garden is massive, with a lot of variation. The cacti were really cool.

Later the same day, we went to Cabo Griao - the highest cliffs in Europe! They have a glas skywalk you can walk out on - awesome! We also went to Ponta do Sol.

The FORTH day we went to the northern parts of Madeira. I did some snorkeling close to Ilheu da Ribeira da Janela - a beautiful cliff in the sea. The waves were quite big, so you should be carful going out here even if you have a lot of experience.

Further west we came to Porto Moniz. They have a really cool area with natural pools. You only pay 1.5€ per person to get in!

The FIFTH day we did some hiking along Levada do Caldeirão Verde (green waterfall). This was amazing! One of the most beautiful and different hikes we've done. It's 6.5km long (13 km back and forth) and the path can be very narrow sometime. Remember to bring a flashlight since there are several pitch black tunnels you have to go though (mind your head). The end of the hike takes you to a magnificent waterfall with crystal clear (but cold) water.

The SIXTH day we wanted to do some more hikning, but the weather was not good at Pico do Arieiro. We wanted to walk from Arieiro to Pico Ruivo. If you want to do the same, check the weather before going! Search for Pico do Arieiro webcam so the the conditions right now ;) We went back to the hotel, to do some more snorkeling and swimming at the hotel pool.

The SEVENTH and last day, I got a surfing lesson from Carlos in Seixal harbor. A black sandy beach with smaller waves - perfect for surf beginners. Even if you don't plan to surf, Seixal is really beautiful and they also have natural pools you can swim in.

We did some other stuff, like the volcanic grotto tour in Sao Vicente (which was great), but we decided to only show the best footage from of our trip to Madeira.

We will come back soon, 7 days is not enough ;) We hope you enjoyed watching our video. Give it a thumbs up, comment and subscribe for more awesome videos!

Abandoned Hotel in the AZORES | SAO MIGUEL | PORTUGAL | 12 Month Travel (VLOG Ep. 42)

How to describe Sao Miguel in the Azores, Portugal? We like to call it New Zealand, Hawaii and Jurassic Park all in one. It was the most magical place that we visited in Europe.

- Hotel Abandonado - Monte Palace: The Abandoned Hotel
- Sete Cicades: Blue and Green Lakes
- Ponta Da Ferraria: Natural Hot Pool in the Ocean
- Miradouro da Grota do Inferno: A bit cloudy when we visited
- Miradouro da Ponta do Sossego: Meant to be great on sunrise
- Lagoa Congro: Quick walk to a peaceful lake
- Mulher Liquor Factory
- Gorreana Tea Factory

Angra do Heroismo (Azores' Islands) Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Angra do Heroismo in Azores’ Islands.

Terceira is one of the Azores’ Islands within the Atlantic Ocean situated around fifteen hundred kilometres from the Portuguese mainland with Angra Do Heroismo as its capital. In the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries it was an important port of call for numerous trading ships and a junction for three continents. As in Europe, the foul air of mediaeval times once filled through the city’s narrow alleys but eventually a beautiful Renaissance city was created along with many fine churches. In the centre of the old town is the Jardim Duque Da Terceira, a well laid out garden with tangled pathways, fountains and an abundance of flowers. According to age old tradition almost each one of the island’s communes has its own Tourada Á Corda, a non-bloody bullfight during which the men await the bulls in the alleys and each bull has a rope tied around its neck to facilitate capture. Angra Do Heroimo, Anchor Of Heroism, created to serve the needs of those who travel the mighty ocean!
