Make the most of your trip to the Azores

Dormant volcanoes, lush vegetation, great hikes and dramatic views are attracting a fast growing number of travelers to this archipelago of 9 volcanic islands in the North Atlantic.

Best time to visit
While the Azores can be visited year-round, the climate is best from March to October, with the peak summer months (July and August) attracting the biggest crowds. March to June are best for watching dolphones and whales.  

Things to do
Adventure seekers and families alike visit the Azores for world class whale watching, hiking and mountain biking on trails with sweeping views, canoeing in volcanic lakes, mountain biking and canyoning through beautiful waterfalls. To recharge after these adventures, enjoy food cooked in the ground using the energy of volcanoes, stroll trough romantic gardens and enjoy a nice glass of Azorean wine by the ocean. 

How to get to the Azores
With many direct flights from Europe (2 - 5 hour flights depending on where you fly from) and an increasing number of direct flights from the US (only 4 hours from Boston) the Azores are easy to reach.

Hiking azores, the Azores - Jul 2 - Jul 8, 2017

Traveler: Catherine C. - Local specialist: Cátia Chaves

Thanks KimKim! This was an excellent trip and having KimKim back-up was comforting. You connected me with Picos de Adventura, a superb tour company and their "adventures" could not have been more fun or beautiful.

Catia was great -- I also worked with Tiago and they were both tremendously helpful with getting my trip organized and with any questions I had along the way. This is a great company clearly focusing on the best possible customer service.

Azores, the Azores - Jul 2 - Jul 7, 2017

Traveler: Erica T. - Local specialist: Tiago Botelho

So organized, very accommodating, great variety of activities. Catia was so helpful with questions, preparation, and the overall planning of our trip. She even made a call for me in advance to help confirm a ferry trip I booked to another island for a day, because I was unable to dial internationally. Every single staff person was fun and friendly. Goncalo went above and beyond in accommodating us on our bike ride day around Sete Cidades. I would recommend Pico de Adventuras to anyone... read more

So organized, very accommodating, great variety of activities. Catia was so helpful with questions, preparation, and the overall planning of our trip. She even made a call for me in advance to help confirm a ferry trip I booked to another island for a day, because I was unable to dial internationally. Every single staff person was fun and friendly. Goncalo went above and beyond in accommodating us on our bike ride day around Sete Cidades. I would recommend Pico de Adventuras to anyone traveling to the Azores. It was a great deal, a great value, and included all the key things to see and do in Sao Miguel.

Tiago is a great guy! Fun personality, very friendly.

Explore and relax, the Azores - Jun 15 - Jun 21, 2017

Traveler: Peter B. - Local specialist: Tiago Botelho

The arrangements were quite seamless through KimKim with a tour operator in the Azores.

Tiago and his team were really accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable. The guides gave us a much better look, and insight, to the Azores and Sao Miguel.

Hiking Azores in July

I'm looking for a hiking trip and someone told me about the Azores. I'm a 60ish woman with lots of hiking experience, but want someplace safe, as I'll be traveling alone. I'd like a hotel/b &b in the evening with an evening meal, but would like to find my...

Azores summer 2017

Explore Azores, get sun, eat great food, hike, drink local wine. Enjoy seafood. Swim. Bike, horseback ride, sail or snorkel. Possibly see multiple islands if it is financially reasonable. Really want a local feel, not an all-inclusive resort experience.
