Sailing voyage Z03-22: Island hopping central Azores

sailing azores

Sailing holidays Z03-22 Island hopping around the central Azores.

From the island of Terceira we sail down the coast to Angra do Heroismo. Depending on the wind, we will probably sail to the small island of Graciosa 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, therefore we will stay in the harbour the next day to explore the island. One of the possibilities 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 planning, but the rest of the sailing trip we will be island hopping, amongst others to Sao Jorge, where we will be staying in the harbour the following day to explore the island. A possibility is Miradouro do Ouvidor, up in the mountains with a beautiful view over the ocean and other islands. From here you can walk down to the secluded ‘Fajã do Ouvidor’ and swim in crystal clear seawater among spectacular basalt rock formations.

We will also sail to the island of Pico. Pico has a small shallow harbour, but also a museum about whaling with beautiful wooden boats. We also spend a day there to explore the island, for example to the old crater Caldeira. We will end this sailing holiday on Horta on the island of Faial.

The daily distances vary, depending on weather and tide, between 12 and 46 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.
