Sailing voyage Z01-22: Island hopping central Azores

Sailing voyage Z01-22 Island hopping around the central Azores

From the island of Terceira we’ll sail along the coast to Angra do Heroismo. Depending on the wind, we will probably sail to the small island of Graciosa on the next day. With a bit of luck we will see dolphins or even whales along the way. With 46 miles, this will be a full day of sailing, so we stay in port the following day to explore the island. One option is Furna do Enxofre, an old volcano with beautiful forests and an impressive lava cave. The inside of the cave is accessible via a spiral staircase with 183 steps.

The wind forecast determines our next exact destination, but we will go island hopping to Sao Jorge, Faial and Pico. Pico has a small, shallow harbour, but also a small museum about whale hunting with beautiful wooden boats. From Pico, it is 55 miles sailing back to Angra do Heroismo on Terceira, another long day of sailing. That means two stops in Angra do Heroismo, but because of its ancient history and historic centre, Angra has been declared a Unesco World Heritage Site. Angra served as a stop-over on the sea route between Europe and America.

After this beautiful long day of sailing, we will also spend another day exploring the island on Terceira. Possibilities are a forest walk in the ‘Reserva Florestal de Recreio da Lagoa das Patas’ and/or the volcano caves of ‘Gruta do Natal’. We end the sailing trip in Praia Vitoria, where we started.

The daily distances vary, depending on weather and tide, between 12 and 55 miles. The above schedule depends on weather, wind and tide, if necessary we can change destinations.

Land excursions are not included in the price and are of course not mandatory.
