Highlights:

See the dramatic volcanic landscapes of São Miguel Island. Sete Cidades Volcano, with the crater and colourful lakes, are must-see, while the Furnas Valley hot springs and Terra Nosta Park’s haven of gardens, geo-thermal pools and forests are particular highlights too.

Look for whales with the help of ORCA and learn of their nature and play a part in assisting with their conservation.

Madeira awaits to provide one final island discovery. From Funchal you can revel in views of forested landscapes via the levada walking trails, and see and smell the vibrant colours and scents of botanical gardens with a local enthusiast.

A wealth of natural wonders await your discovery amongst the emerald-green islands and azure Atlantic waters of the remote, hard-to-reach Azores archipelago. At São Miguel Island, a volcanic wonderland is ripe for your exploration; the scenes of the Sete Cidades Volcano, with its 13-kilometre-wide crater and colourful lakes, are must-see, while the Furnas Valley hot springs and Terra Nosta Park’s haven of gardens, geo-thermal pools and forests are particular highlights too. On Faial Island, explore verdant volcanic valleys alive with native flora and see the Capelinhos Volcano in all its glory, perhaps on a 4x4 adventure. Alternatively, you could join a whale watching tour to go in search of sperm whales in the waters surrounded Faial – an unforgettable experience.

During a stop at Praia da Vitoria, you could opt to take a scenic journey to historic Angra do Heroísmo on Terceira Island’s picturesque south coast. Indulge in a leisurely exploration of this UNESCO-listed city, to find its interesting museums and architectural gems such as the 16th century Sé Cathedral. Don’t miss the unspoilt Atlantic Ocean views on offer from the Monte Brasil volcano, towering over Angra, too. As you head from home, Madeira awaits to provide one final island discovery. From Funchal you can revel in views of forested landscapes via the levada walking trails, and see and smell the vibrant colours and scents of botanical gardens with a local enthusiast. What's more, with the help and guidance of ORCA conservationists who'll join on board for your adventure, you may get to spot whales whilst out to sea, learn of their nature and play a part in assisting with their conservation.
