About the Azores 
Azores archipelago

The Azores is a Portuguese archipelago composed by 9 islands in the North Atlantic Ocean, 2000 Kms off Lisbon. The archipelago can be divided in three groups: Eastern - São Miguel and Santa Maria; Central - Faial, Pico, São Jorge and Terceira; and Western - Flores and Corvo..

How to get to the Azores

There are no boat ferries from Europe or the US to the Azores. You can get to Azores through direct flights from all over Europe, from USA and from Canada. Some examples include Boston, Oakland (SATA); Toronto, Montreal (SATA); London-Gatwick (SATA); Paris (SATA / TAP); Düsseldorf (AirBerlin), Frankfurt, München (SATA); Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, München (TAP); Stocolm (Primera); Barcelona, Las Palmas (SATA) and Lisboa (TAP / SATA).

You can fly with a low cost company from Portugal mainland to Terceira or São Miguel (Ryanair or Easyjet), and then SATA will provide the connection flight to other islands free of charge, after letting them know within 24h of the low-cost flight reservation (more information at


We have four seasons in one day! So don't be surprised to experience heavy rain, hot sun and then low clouds. Despite the changeable weather conditions, temperatures are quite moderate throughout the year, and summer months have longer periods of sunshine and higher temperatures.

The average air temperature ranges between 13.6°C and 22°C.

The sea temperature ranges from 17°C in the winter to 25°C in the summer.

Azorean People

The majority of Azoreans work in fisheries, dairy farming, agriculture and services. Azoreans are nice and friendly. English is well spoken along the younger locals.

Where to stay in the Azores - Find Accommodation

There are three main types of accommodation in Azores: Hotels, Guest Houses (B&B or self-catered accommodation), and Local Accommodation. In Faial and Pico we have partnerships with Hotel Faial, Porto Pim Guest House and Casa da Baía Guest House, and with a local accommodation, Casa do Porto.

Best time to visit the Azores

The best time to visit Azores is whenever you get the chance to!

You can find amazing views, pristine landscapes and natural experiences all year round: hiking trails, countryside cycling, sailing, bird watching, and dolphin and whale watching. If you want to see dolphins and our iconic whale species, the sperm whale, you can visit Azores any time of the year. However, if you want to see baleen whales (including the magnificent blue whale) the best time to visit the archipelago is between March and June, when these cetaceans pass through on migration routes.
