Sunvil Discovery has released its 2015 real Azores brochure featuring flexible itineraries in carefully-selected small hotels, pousadas, apartments and self-catering cottages across all nine islands of the Azores.
For 2015, new highlights include a walk that uncovers Sao Miguel’s fascinating geology and ventures inside volcanoes and a foray to the remotest isles of the Azores, Flores and Corvo – located at Europe’s westernmost point.
The company's product manager, Rosanna Melaragni, said: “The Azores is the world’s first destination to be awarded the Platinum Quality Coast Award (2014/15), in recognition of its high-quality coastline and number of sustainable tourism programmes. The islands are an eco-paradise, offering a diverse, unspoilt playground for lovers of the great outdoors. New activities and experiences, coupled with a direct weekly flight, make them an appealing option to seasoned travellers seeking untouched and little-known corners of Europe.”
As examples of itineraries, a seven-night Walking Inside Volcanoes tour uncovers the geology of Sao Miguel. The flexible itinerary can be extended to take in geological highlights further afield, such as the lava caves on Pico, Graciosa and Faial.
Prices lead in at £911 per person, based on two sharing, and include flights from Gatwick, breakfast accommodation, transfers and six half-day, self-guided walks with trail descriptions and maps.
Alternatively, a Sun and Nature Walking Holiday on Sao Miguel and Santa Maria seeks out some of the best scenic walks that the islands have to offer. Prices lead in at £1,063, based on two sharing, and include flights from Gatwick, seven nights’ breakfast accommodation, inter-island flights, transfers and six half-day, self-guided walks with trail descriptions and maps.
