The Azores



A Paradise in the deep blue of the Atlantic, the Azores call more and more the attention of travelers looking for meaningful experiences.

Known for their welcoming and friendly people, the Azores inspire with their landscapes, food, and traditions.

Darwin passed by the Azores Islands, but he did not give it too much credit, however, according to the scientific community he died regretting that fact.

Still, he mentioned this archipelago several times, in his masterpiece “On The Origin Of Species” after writing to Francisco de Arruda Furtado, a young Azorean with 26years of age (the only Portuguese person to whom he ever wrote) aiming to improve his judgement and to level up his knowledge of these islands.

With volcanic origin, placed in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, the archipelago is divided into three groups, the Western Group (Flores and Corvo), the Central Group(Faial, Pico, São Jorge, Graciosa and Terceira) and the Eastern Group (São Miguel and Santa Maria).

Four hours flight away from the United Sates and two hours from Lisbon, the Azores are an archipelago where you can rest far away from the rest of the World.

Stunning views, single beauty lagoons located in the craters of extinct volcanoes, hot water springs, peaks and caves, green fields… all this makes these islands unique inthe World.
