Azores Hiking Vacation for Two

  A couple visited the Azores in April 2017

“We are interested in taking in the scenery, hiking, and learning about the local culture.

We would like to stay on 1 island most of the trip, but want to make sure there is plenty to do and taken in from a hiking standpoint. Spending a day touring a volcano or whale watching would also be enjoyable.

We aren't picky about accommodations as long as they are clean but would like somewhere with a queen or king sized bed.”

Cátia Chaves, a local specialist from the Azores, helped this traveler put together a customized itinerary.

Hello, thank you very much for your contact. I will start working in a proposal, and I will send it shortly. I will keep in touch. Tiago

Thanks Tiago! I look forward to hearing what you come up with.

Thanks for putting this together.  Could we make Day 4 a free day for us to do our own exploring. 

Hello. we booked our flights to Sao Miguel. We arrive Sunday early in the morning and depart Friday evening. Based on our flight times, could you modify the proposal one last time so that we only have a 1/2 day of hiking on Sunday? Also, do you have a hotel name for the proposal so that I can look up the location?


Tiago Botelho
The hotel we suggest is the Azoris Royal Garden, in Ponta Delgada city. It´s a 4 star hotel.

If you have any additional questions, please let me know.


Thanks for answering all of our questions. I booked the trip for April. We are excited and are good with the hotel you recommended. As we get closer to our date, I'll reach out to make sure we are all set.


Tiago Botelho
Great news! I already have confirmed your hotel booking, and I´m glad you enjoyed my suggestion.

I will need the flight code and schedule of your arrival, so we can pick you up at the airport, and give you the voucher for the hotel.

Thanks, and hope to hear from you soon.

Traveler Review

Our trip went very smoothly and was a wonderful experience. We didn't wind up doing the activities on the days of our trip planned, but all of them were covered and it fit very nicely based on weather, etc...

Catia was very prompt in responding to any questions that we had during our trip.
