Experience Jurassic nature in technicolor on the Azores’ São Miguel Island

Travels with Deb

São Miguel is known as the “Green Island” due to its lush landscapes and rolling, verdant hills. It feels a bit like Ireland, Iceland and Hawaii all bundled up into one enchanting place. Most visitors to the island arrive in Ponta Delgada, the lively, cosmopolitan city that serves as the economic hub of the Azores. As with our previous experience on Terceira, Archipelago Choice scheduled several, privately guided tours for my husband and I, focusing on nature, landscape, history and food. They also booked our accommodations and transfers and provided a wealth of information about the island.
