things to do

Montanha do Pico Hike Often seen disappearing into the clouds this stratovolcano can look threatening, and its most recent eruption happened in 1718. But what you might not realise at first glance is that it’s not too difficult to scale, and doesn’t require advanced equipment other than good hiking gear.
Diving Each island brings something different to the table: Near the old port of Angra do Heroísmo in Terceira there’s an underwater anchor graveyard, while the awesome topography of Pico Island continues beneath the waves with sheer volcanic cliffs.
Sete Cidades Caldera Nothing can prepare you for the majesty of the Sete Cidades Massif on the west side of São Miguel Island
