The Azores are the closet point in Europe to North America. The islands were created by volcanic activity millions of years ago, which left behind a stunning and dramatic environment. From the black lava cliffs on the island of Terceira to the mythical Mountain Lake of Fire on São Miguel, the Azores offers an intensely green and sculptured landscape. This ocean-enveloped land enjoys a mild climate year-round between 60°F and 80°F.
In its fourth annual Destination Scorecard survey, the National Geographic Center for Sustainable Destinations recently named the Azores islands as the world’s second most appealing islands destination. A panel of 522 experts reviewed conditions of 111 islands and archipelagos. The Azores received the title of “Authentic, unspoiled, and likely to remain so.”
Azores Express (part of the SATA Group) connects New England with the beautiful islands of the Azores. Year-round flights are available from Boston, with connecting service to Lisbon, Porto and Madeira. For information call 800-762-9995 or visit www.sata.pt.
