This 10 day tour you start on Faial Island (harbor of Horta). You are taking day trips, hopping from island to island and on each island you’ll stay one day so everyone has a chance to enjoy the atmosphere of it. You can take walks, usually there are bicycles for rent, or you can rent a car. You can go alone or join a group. The exact sailing route depends on the wind, but we’re almost certain to visit São Jorge, Graciosa and Terceira. Depending on the time and wishes of the guests we may visit other islands as well. The Azores are known for their delicious summer temperatures at this time, and we look forward to enjoying beautiful wildflowers, visits by dolphins and whales. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

The Azores are an archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, a welcome port of call for ships crossing the Atlantic. Nine of the seventeen volcanic islands are inhabited, with São Miguel and Faial as main population centres. Horta on Faial is a traditional stopover destination for passing ships. The Azores value sustainable tourism, and are rightly proud of their beautiful islands. Whale spotting is a popular activity on the waters around the islands, but the mountainous landscape is equally compelling.

    "IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE JOY TO STEER FOR HOURS WHEN THE WIND WAS BLOWING AND EVEN WHEN IT WAS COMPETELY DEAD. I LOVED TO SEE THE SEA, I LOVED THE SILENCE OF THE OCEAN."
