Azores in May

  A couple visited the Azores in March 2017

“My wife and I are looking for a 1 week trip to include visiting 3 different islands to explore what each island offers. We would like to visit Horta, Faial and Sao Miguel with a majority of time on Sao Miguel. We would like to travel to include May 15, 2017.”

Summary of the trip planning conversation

Below are some useful excerpts from the trip planning conversation
I´m working on your proposal. I´m gathering information and prices for accommodation, and I will send you your proposal in the next 24 hours.

As for activities, I´m thinking about whale watching, canyoning, hiking, thermal pools, canoeing and cultural tours. Any first feedback?
I think your on the right track for activities. We look forward to hearing from you.
My wife and I are excited about or trip but would like to travel in Mid-March rather than May. What is your schedule for tours - do they run Monday to Friday or on some other schedule?
mid March is also a good option, but please consider that the weather may be a bit more unstable. Regarding the tours, we run them everyday of the week, except if the weather force us to cancel. Please bring a good rain jacket, and good hiking boots, plenty of energy and discovery spirit. We can always adjust the days of the tours according to the weather or any other logistic reason.
