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.
