Azores: Faial Island 2021

We present the Azores: a set of nine green volcanic islands in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. A wonderful climate all year round that has created a paradise for the proliferation of Orchids and one of the best places in the world for dolphin and whale watching. Riding the beautiful Lusitanians we will discover the island of Faial in a circular route around the island of 8 days.

From April to October departure dates on request starting any day of the week with a minimum of 2 participants.

In the months of January, February, March, November, December, guaranteed departure dates with a minimum of 1 person departing from Italy

Today's route goes through isolated countryside.
We can occasionally meet the farmers on their way to the pastures.

On the second day of our journey, we reach the east coast.
After a break on the black sands of Praia do Almoxarife beach, we head to Quinta de São Lourenço, a historic farm located near the beautiful city of Horta.
We have enough time to stroll through the streets of the city, visit the famous colorful port and take a break in the most popular bar between Europe and America, the Peter Café Sport, where we can taste the most famous gin and tonic of the Atlantic Ocean

4° day

FAIAL (B/L/D)

A gently sloping path leads us to the beautiful green valley of Flamengos, where the air smells of thyme and mint.

Dinner. Overnight at the Lodge.

5° day

FAIAL (B/L/D)

Today’s route leads us to the impressive volcanic landscape of the Capelinhos desert.
In this place, an eruption began in 1957 that lasted a year and completely changed the landscape of this area, adding a new strip of land to the island. We can see the remains of the houses that formed the small fishing village, now hidden under the ashes of the eruption.
The museum of the Volcano dos Capelinhos was built underground, at the foot of the ancient lighthouse.
We cross this surreal landscape and stop for a break in a small lava cave.

We gallop through a wonderful eucalyptus forest and arrive at the black beach of Fajã Bay.
This is a place of great charm, with small cellars, orchards and gardens.

Dinner. Overnight at the Lodge.

We have arrived at the last day of the discovery of Faial.
We travel the island from the dry south to the green north, enjoying incomparable landscapes, between green pastures and the blue ocean.
We arrive at the village of Ribeira Funda for lunch. Sitting on the benches of a belvedere we have lunch to the sound of the wind and listen to the wild cries of the kites.
