SATA International is offering clients their last chance to fly directly to the Azores.

Flying direct from Gatwick to Ponta Delgada every Saturday until October 19, the Azores features several UNESCO sites including the walled vineyards of Pico and the city of Angra do HeroÍsmo.

Alternatively, sporting activities from paragliding over the volcanic landscape to canyoning down vertical drops are available alongside golf, mountain biking, jeep tours and a variety of watersports.

Clients interested in the local wildlife can embark on half-day whale-watching excursions from the islands of Sao Miguel, Faial and Pico.
