Our adventure begins today on São Miguel, the biggest of the islands.

Day 4: São Miguel Island > Faial Island

We hop a short flight to the charming Island of Faial this morning — known as the “Blue Island” due to the countless hydrangea hedges dotting the landscape. Today, we spend time in the lively town of Horta and visit the Capelinhos Volcano Interpretation Centre, which was built underground to avoid interference with the natural landscape. Here, we learn the fascinating history of the Caldeira and the formation of the Azores. (b)
