Whale watching

 More than 20 different types of cetaceans can be spotted in the Azores, among resident and migrant species, common or rare. This is an an ecosystem with unique characteristics. With majestic whales and friendly dolphins, the blue Atlantic Ocean becomes even more magic around these nine islands.

 

Golf

Only peace and nature. Green mixed with colorful flowers, three courses available in the archipelago that you can play in any season of the year. Suitable from beginners to professionals. In pasture golf, swings are shown to the local population amidst pastures and agricultural fields. A type of golf with similar rules, but with the label of pure fun and socialising around a sport.

 

Geotourism

The genesis of the Azores is found upon 1766 volcanoes, nine of which are still active. Underground, almost three hundred volcanic cavities, including caves, ravines and cracks, have been surveyed. The landscape is filled with dry calderas, craters lakes, fumaroles and thermal water springs. In the sea, there are submarine geothermal springs.

 

Scuba Diving

Diving day and night, in sandy, rocky or mixed seabeds, in caves or shipwrecks…from beginners to professionals, and the adventure may start with simple snorkelling in order to leisurely enjoy the abundant marine life of the archipelago’s crystal clear waters. On the other hand, diving in an ocean bank is a guarantee for an adrenalin rush and for memories that will persist in our mind.

 

Bike Tours/MTB Rides

The islands boast a plethora of trails ideal for all levels, as well as an array of fascinating nature and unusual volcanic terrain.

From ultra-technical single tracks which connect mountains, beaches and fajãs to roads surrounding lakes and mountain ranges which flourish with native fauna and flora, the Azorean islands offer a mountain biking experience for every taste and skill level.

 

Health and Well being

There are various springs of natural carbonic water, waterfalls and iron water pools, which have been used since the sixteenth century.  The highlight goes to the thermal baths Termas da Ferraria and the iron water pools in Furnas, on the island of São Miguel.

 

Canyoning

The Azores are located in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. The region is composed of nine volcanic islands, three of which provide excellent canyoning conditions and São Miguel offer a vast supply of beautiful canyoning options and itineraries.

 

Birdwatching

Besides the Azores bullfinch (Pyrrhula murina), one of the rarest birds in Europe and endemic to a small area of  São Miguel Island, the Azores have also the most important nesting populations in the world of Cory’s Shearwaters (Calonectris Diomedia borealis), and Rosy Tern (Sterna dougallii). The archipelago boasts approximately 30 breeding species. The number of occasional species already observed and recorded in the archipelago, is approaching the 400, including some extremely rare for the Western Palearctic.

 

Wave Sports

Given its geographical location, the Azores Archipelago is an excellent region for the practice of wave sports. The morphology of the different islands enable surfing, bodyboarding, SUP, windsurfing in various contexts, beach breaks, reef breaks and point breaks.

 

 

Big Game Fishing

Enormous blue and white marlins swim in this part of the Atlantic, as well as dolphin-fishes and Atlantic bluefin tunas, among other species of tuna. Between the islands of the triangle (Faial, Pico and São Jorge), the challenge is always on, even though any of the remaining islands can be a point of departure for high quantity and quality fishing outings.

 

Yachting

On a sailboat or a motorboat, you will quickly understand the mystique of navigating in the Azores seas. When navigating around the coastline of an island, it is possible to see the green landscape descending towards the crystalline-clear waters of the ocean. Beaches and sheltered inlets invite you to stop and dive in their waters. It is easy to ass up nautical miles as you travel between the wonders of these nine islands. Dolphins accompany you in the island crossings, as they did more than 500 years ago with the discoverers of this paradise. The horizon is the limit that stands above the ocean blue.

 

Canoeing / Kayaking

These sports can be practised in the Azores both in internal waters on open sea. Whether one exploits the escarpments that surround the lakes that filled the volcanic calderas or rows around the small islets to watch sea birds or even to visit caves, all these activities involve a total physical and emotional involvement with the Azorean landscape.

 

Paragliding

The Azores are deemed a singular paragliding destination, providing several spots, as well as takeoff and landing areas.
