Azores: Hiking - Walking
Europe's Best Kept Secret
Hiking or walking trips in the Azores are wonderful ways to truly see the pristine and awe inspiring nature and landscape that the Azores have to offer. Hike through fragrant green valleys full of flowers and up the slopes of stunning volcanoes and coastal cliffs on self guided or guided tours. The islands of São Jorge, São Miguel, Falai and Pico are particularly recommended. Lagoa das Sete Cidades on São Miguel, for example, is a small, but marvelous lake formed in the crater of a dormant volcano. The weather on the Azores is mild year-round, but can also be unpredictable. It is therefore best to dress prepared for a bit of rain.
