Azores walking tours

The archipelago of the Azores is a great playground for hikers! The terrain is diverse and can be very different from one island to the next: the arid, volcanic terrain of Sao Miguel is a stark contrast to the luscious green island of Flores. You can choose the walking tour of the Azores to suit you and either set yourself a hiking challenge or simply take your time on more relaxed walks. Either way, the constant presence of water in every direction reminds you that you are on just droplets of land in the immensity of the Ocean, a somewhat humbling thought to ponder on your Azores walking tour.

A walking trip in the Azores is a walk through the colonial past of Portugal, passing through ancient villages and towns that were built by the very first settlers of the archipelago. We have created all of our Azores walking tours from scratch. We have travelled, explored and walked on the trails and hiking paths of each of the 9 islands and put together a detailed roadbook with directions and highlighted maps so you can be sure to enjoy a self-guided walking holiday in the Azores with a comprehensive written guide. We also ensure that you experience the culture and ambiance of these Portuguese islands and so our trips favour the local economy. We work with family run guest houses and small local hotels and suggest some of our favourite restaurants. The Azores are still something of a hidden gem in the world of tourism and you can be one of the lucky ones to discover the archipelago with an Intura walking trip!
