Family Adventure in the Azores

  Family of 2 adults and 2 children visited the Azores in June 2017

“The kids are 12 and 10. We have some hiking experience in Iceland and in the Alps. We arrive at Ponta Delgada at the end of June. We are not sure how it would work if we stay on one island in a hotel but want to do let's say a hiking trip on another island. Would we always be back the same day?

Here are some other activities we want to do:
Whale watching
Dolphin swimming
Bird watching
Mountain biking
beach vacation”

Tiago Botelho
Thank you very much for your contact. My name is Tiago and I´m here to help you prepare a great program for you. Regarding a day trip to another island, I could recommend a trip to Terceira island for 4 days. That would include also hiking. Is that ok with you? Anyway, I will start gathering all the prices and I will send your proposal in the next 24 hours. Double room for the kids is ok for you? Hope to hear from you soon, and let´s make it work. Thanks

Tiago Botelho
Here is our first proposal. We did have in consideration half price in the activities for your 10 year old child. Please have a look and share your feedback. I´m here to help prepare the best program for you. Thanks.

Tiago, looks great! I like to cook and am wondering if for one week we should stay in an Appartement instead of a hotel. Is Sao Miguel a good place to buy fresh fish? Who would be our guide, is it always you for all trips?

Tiago Botelho
Thanks for your feedback. If you prefer, I can arrange accommodation here in São Miguel in an apart hotel, where you can cook the nicest fish in the Atlantic. And yes, in São Miguel fresh fish is always available, and we have more than 80 species of fish that you can enjoy here, from the more than 500 that live in our waters. Regarding me being your guide, I will do my absolute best to be with you in all the activities in São Miguel. If I would have to go with you to Terceira island, the price of the trip would increase a lot. Nevertheless, our company also operates in Terceira, and you will be with professional guides all the time. Thanks
