BREATHTAKING VOLCANIC CRATERS, lush gardens, hot springs and stunning coastal views—the Azores are exquisite. A non-stop flight from Boston brings us to beautiful Sao Miguel—the Green Island—in just four-and-a-half hours. From our downtown accommodations in colorful Ponta Delgada, we’re close to museums, monuments and historic landmarks as well as lively markets, lovely parks and plenty of cafés, restaurants and shops. Visit the famous crater lakes at Sete Cidades—and perhaps discover why one lagoon is blue and the other green—the mystical Fire Lake, and the hot springs in the Valley of Furnas. We’ll be entertained at a tea plantation and passion fruit liqueur factory, enjoy a traditional Azorean feast cooked underground by the hot springs and stroll the winding paths at Terra Nostra Botanical Park. Add in quaint villages, tropical waterfalls, ocean views and a full day to explore on our own and we’ll understand why National Geographic rates the Azores as one of the top ten vacation spots in the world!
