Sao Miguel is the largest island in the Portuguese Azorean archipelago, situated in the North Atlantic Ocean.
Known locally as ‘the green island’, Sao Miguel’s landscape is characterised by rolling hills, vast green plains and towering mountains. It also boasts beautiful crater lakes, sandy beaches, blue ocean waters and an award-winning national park.
The bustling capital of Ponta Delgada offers both a cosmopolitan and historical atmosphere, with a great number of fascinating monuments and century-old buildings found alongside upmarket restaurants and a variety of shops.
As the most populated island in the Azores, Sao Miguel offers numerous ferry connections to many locations in the archipelago. The routes are operated by a popular local ferry company, but, given the sparseness of the islands, the journey times can vary greatly.
Pico is a large island in the Central Group of the Azores, a Portuguese archipelago in the heart of the North Atlantic Ocean.
With its formidable, albeit dormant, namesake volcano commanding the horizon, Pico’s grand landscape offers some of the best hiking and climbing in the Azores. The ever changing scenery makes for some gorgeous backdrops, with brightly coloured exotic plants giving way to vast lava rock formations and enticing, natural swimming holes, offering unforgettable walks and bike rides. Pico also has a rich history and deep-rooted links to the whaling industry, ever since it was discovered in the mid-fifteenth century, while boasting a long-standing fine wine culture, with its unique vineyard landscape commended by UNESCO in 2004.
As part of the Central Group, Pico is well linked to the majority of islands in the archipelago by ferry, with vessels docking in the town of Sao Roque on the north coast.
