|19-08-2019| A very Full Half Day in Faial Island, Azores

Dedicating your day to explore the volcanoes, plants and culture of the Azores in the company of a local biologist is normally a great way to spend a day!

As a Biologist working as a guide it is a great pleasure, as plants, insects and many other aspects from weather to seasonaiity of species requires attention and curious clients with interesting questions make every tour a day of learning and experience.

Here we place some of the photographs collected during this morning!

Thank you for beeing such a great group!

See you soon! José
