Sailing voyage Z02-22: Island hopping northern Azores

Sailing voyage Z02-22 Island hopping around the central & northern Azores

From the island of Terceira we will probably sail to the island of Graciosa. With 50 miles this will be a lovely long day of sailing. The next day, depending on the wind, we will probably sail to the island of Sao Jorge, where we will remain a day in the harbour to explore the island. One of the possibilities is Miradouro do Ouvidor, up in the mountains with a beautiful view over the ocean and other islands. From this point you can walk down to the secluded ‘Fajã do Ouvidor’ and have a swim in crystal-clear seawater amid spectacular basalt rock formations.

Then, depending on the wind forecast, we sail to the northern island of Flores. With 145 miles, that means we will be sailing through the night. With a bit of luck, we will see dolphins or even whales along the way and a beautiful sunset and/or rise. Depending on the wind, we will arrive on Flores the following afternoon. The next day, we will explore the island. One possibility is the beautiful waterfall and forests of Poço Ribeira do Ferreiro.

From there we will be sailing to Horta on Faial, which, with 133 nautical miles, is also an overnight sailing trip. Most probably we will stay on Faial for a day to recover and/or to explore the island. A nice destination is the lighthouse of Capelinhos on the north cape with a very special and beautiful volcanic landscape. We will also sail to the island of Pico, which has a small shallow harbour, but also a museum dedicated to whaling with beautiful wooden boats. From Pico it is 55 miles sailing to Angra do Heroismo on Terceira, which has been declared a Unesco World Heritage Site because of its ancient history and historic centre. Angra served as a stop-over on the shipping route between Europe and America. We will end the sailing trip back in Praia Vitoria on Terceira.

The daily distances vary, depending on weather and tide, between 12 and 145 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.
