Where are the Azores? 

The Azores are a mid-atlantic archipelago of 9 islands and are part of Portugal. They lie between Europe and America. It takes 1 hour from mainland Portugal to the big island of Sao Miguel which is our main holiday destination and 2 1/2 hours to fly to the central group of islands including Pico and Faial where we also offer holidays.

The Azores are situated in the Atlantic ocean 1000 miles west of Portugal. There are 3 groups of islands, the Eastern group ( Sao Miguel, Santa Maria), the Central group ( Faial, Pico, Sao Jorge, Teceira and Graciosa) and the Western group ( Corvo and Flores) It is the only land between America and Europe.

The Azores Map


A Portuguese territory, the nine islands, dominated by a volcanic mountain range, offer a rare and unspoiled natural beauty, having retained their cultural integrity and escaped the ravages of commercial tourism. There is a wild and elemental quality here, the ocean’s presence is never far away and breathing the air alone is invigorating. Some people say, it is the last vestiges of the lost continent of Atlantis! Hot springs steam into the fresh and

Azores Islands unpolluted air. There are meadows filled with the scent of wild herbs and vivid, colourful flowers line the roads. It is quite the perfect setting to relax and slow down.

“With active volcanoes, crater lakes, moss-­‐draped forests and shores composed of swirls of lava, this is an archipelago packed with natural drama” Emma Gregg, Travel Writer

We are a long standing member of the World Cetacean Alliance. In April 2023 the WCA announced that the Azores had been awarded Whale Heritage Site status – becoming one of only six fully certified Whale Heritage Sites worldwide!  We are absolutely thrilled by this and proud of the achievements of our partners in the Azores with whom it is a privilege to work with. The World Cetacean Alliance said at the time of the award:

“all of the islands in the Azores archipelago have a strong cultural connection with cetaceans, progressing from their history of hunting sperm whales to their present-day responsible whale watching and conservation activities. By granting Whale Heritage Site status to the Azores, the World Cetacean Alliance recognised the commitment to protecting the many whales and dolphins around these beautiful islands, as well as helping people to watch them safely and responsibly”
