+ tour overview

The Azores is an Atlantic Archepelago and autonomous region under the flag of Portugal. Often called, 'The Hawaii of Europe,' The Azores' infamy comes from an incredibly lush landscape filled with rolling green hills, protected coastal reserves, natural hot springs, waterfalls, and a plethora of tea plantations, lavender fields and more.

This tour with VoyEdge RX is perfect for getting off the beaten path and touring the absolute best of the main island of Sao Miguel and touring with a group.

From group fitness activities, to hiking, the early summer is the best, brightest and greenest time of the year to visit The Azores. With a nearly perfect climate, the region boasts some of Europe's most incredible culinary dishes as well.
