THE ADVENTURE

In our humble opinion, this is one of the best archipelago itineraries out there! They call the Azores the Hawaii of the Atlantic for the islands have a raw, untouched beauty. This adventure has everything; from supporting conservation of the mighty blue whales and dolphins to the threatened Azorean bullfinch to surfing at a unique eco-beach hotel to hoisting a sail to hiking across 'The Wall' of the Atlantic - a 30km stretch of land with 200 volcanos to summiting the highest mountain in Portugal (which also happens to be a volcano) and then sleeping overnight at the top! This trip is for adventurers who will return home explorers with a thousand stories.

Help preserve the Azores bullfinch and its habitat – laurel forest – and learn about the conservation efforts carried out for more than 10 years to save this unique bird species from extinction. The introduction and expansion of invasive plant species is a huge threat to the bird species on the islands. You will learn and help support this bird and play a part in its survival on our planet.
