"Maybe later..." - we say far too often. Do you feel like an unforgettable journey of discovery of the Azores island of Sao Miguel? Relaxed flights, with which we have had good experiences, are numerous. We are happy to provide tips and otherwise recommend that you enter "Germany" as the departure and Ponta Delgada as the destination airport on Skyscanner.co.uk. Hey dear ones, I was already 6x on the Azores and Kiki and I organize this tour as part of a heart project including all secret places and tips :-) I'm looking forward to an uncomplicated and relaxed troop that feels like exploring the most beautiful places of the Azores on foot together. The price includes a fantastic accommodation- I promise(!) and a tripleader fee for my expertise on site and because I take care of the whole orga! Everything else, what änfällt on site, eg a rental car, we share directly through the app Splitwise among us all. *** Relaxed *** Unforced *** Unforgettable *** - Sao Miguel, the largest island in the Azores, has many scenic highlights to offer: Hot springs, blue and green shimmering crater lakes, lava rocks, laurel forests, sandy beaches and rugged rocky coasts. Contented cows graze on countless green pastures, often idyllically surrounded by stone walls. Some of them have a beautiful view of the sea. Rustic old stone houses stand next to newer brightly painted houses. In almost every village there are pretty white plastered churches with black borders. In addition, the island of São Miguel is the only place in Europe where tea is grown. In Ponta Delgada there are even pineapple plantations. It is a great place for hiking and whale watching almost all year round. Of course, São Miguel also has a few beautiful beaches, even a black beach. We will go hiking 4-5 times (depending on the agreement in the group), have one day off and one day to chill in the hot springs. We will get to fully enjoy the main island. Questions? Ask them away, you are welcome to ask us anything and most importantly:join us and be part of a unique travel experience that consists of hiking, nature, relaxing ... ...
