Sailing trip around the Azores. Come to the remote Portuguese archipelago in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and sail between different islands on a schooner Santa Maria Manuela. You will board in Sao Miguel and visit Sao Jorge and Graciosa, before disembarking in Terceira. You can visit the islands on your own, buy optional excursions or spend the non-sailing days kayaking or fishing (equipment available on board). Open to Windseekers of 15 years and older; younger at request (accompanied by an adult). VAT not included in the price. Price doesn’t include optional excursions (from EUR 25 to EUR 75). Changes in the itinerary may be made due to weather conditions.
Sao Miguel in the Azores is also known as The Green Island – and for a good reason! If you love nature, hiking and taking in beautiful vistas, this is the place to visit. You can rent quads and go canyoning. There are also interesting museums and research places dedicated to the volcanic nature of the islands – visit them and you will almost certainly learn something new.
Terceira is one of the Azores islands in the Atlantic Ocean. Terceira is home to Azores’ oldest city Angra do Heroismo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you like nature, visit the Algar do Carvao caves or Monte Brasil park. If you prefer history, stroll through Angra do Heroismo and don’t miss the Town Hall! You can also climb up to Alto da Memoria for a beautiful view over the city.
