Portugal – Azores Collection

“We just want to stay as we are, a secret paradise destination in the middle of the Atlantic” said the hotel receptionist while calling a cab for me. I was not even staying at this hotel …

In the turquoise Atlantic archipelago, formed by nine volcanic islands, the horizon seems to have no end. Known more for the unique beauty of the hinterland rather than it’s beaches, Azores remain to this day a secret paradise off the coast of Portugal. Follow us from Lisbon to Sao Migel island, to explore the breathaking Alpic scenery spring within inactive volcanos. Trek around magnificent lakes and forests, then relax inside hot thermal pools. Tame the waves at lava kissed beaches, witness the inspiring Azorian continental architecture and don’t forget to taste the exrordinary Portuguese couisine.
