By plane, it takes only five hours from Germany to feel the island’s vibes and leave everyday life behind to immerse in the Azores. Nowadays, a lot of airlines take you to the archipelago, which means the destination is very accessible.

For all you water fanatics, there are a lot of different activities, including diving, sailing, whale watching, and also observing wild dolphins! If you like to stick to land, the islands offer a lot with wonderful hiking trails and unique camping sites. It’s safe to say that this archipelago is a must-see for every outdoor lover!

Are you more interested in a slow-down, wellness kind of trip? The Azores offer a lot of fantastic beaches, thermal spas, and hot springs. Another interesting thing to visit is the last European tea plantations that you can find on the biggest island, São Miguel. This island is called “the green island” because of its outstanding nature and flora. Don’t worry, though, if you are a city-lover and culture addict.

You will not get bored because the capital of the archipelago, Ponta Delgada, has a lot to offer! The best travel time for this destination is from June to September, but because of the temperate and tropical-like climate, you can travel the Azores all year long.
