Step out of the city life by going to Caldeira das Sete Cidades and Dolphin & Whale Watching. The adventure continues: explore the activities along Lagoa do Fogo, tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia de Santa Barbara, take in the spiritual surroundings of Nossa Senhora da Paz, and take some stellar pictures from Miradouro da Boca do Inferno.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Ponta Delgada fast, fun, and easy.

Mountain Island
Composed of nine volcanic islands scattered in the Atlantic some 1,300 km (850 mi) west of continental Portugal, the Azores represent one of Europe's remotest vacation destinations. Settled sporadically over a span of several centuries, the islands in this archipelago retain much of their isolated feel, each one boasting its own distinct culture, dialect, and cuisine. Long overlooked by even the most adventurous travelers, the islands now surprise a growing number of visitors with their lavish natural beauty, good roads, and hospitable towns providing comfortable accommodations and modern amenities. Place the island of Pico at the top of your itinerary to discover Portugal's highest mountain, a picture-perfect volcanic cone rising above a landscape of World Heritage-listed vineyards.
