Whale Watching

The Azores are one of the world’s biggest whale sanctuaries. Over 27 different species, both native and migrating, can be spotted here - that's one third of the number of species in existence. The shimmering blue seas of the Azores are the perfect place to observe these majestic creatures up close in the wild.

Do & See

Natural wonders greet you at every corner in these otherworldly islands. The nine islands of the Azores are in fact some of the world's highest mountains, and most interesting volcanic formations. Lakes and rivers, forest reserves, natural and recreational parks, protected landscape areas, endemic flora and fauna, and rare ecosystems combine to provide endless possibilities for those who venture off the beaten path.
