 Geo-tourism and Volcano Day Tour

Sao Miguel Island, Azores

The Azores Archipelago has volcanic origins and is considered by many to have exceptional landscape due to this influence.  Recent eruptions are visible and can be visited. The volcanic origins of the islands created mountains and valleys covered by a luxurious and varied   vegetation, lakes in ancient volcano craters, hot water springs, thermal hot-water fountains and cascades, stupendous peaks contrasting with cultivated fields. We offer organised trips to several geological interest spots.
