We are going to discover a piece of unknown Europe!

We are waiting for the archipelago of islands, which are located in the heart of the Atlantic Ocean - the Azores and the island of Madeira.

AZORES

Although the Azores belong to Portugal, they are completely different fr om its continental part. These are islands of volcanoes and lakes, boiling geysers and waterfalls. The lakes themselves are located in the craters of extinct volcanoes, there are “warm” waterfalls and thermal springs everywhere wh ere you can swim. There are 2 unique plantations on the islands, the only ones in all of Europe: tea and pineapple.

All these wonders of nature complement the unearthly landscapes. Where piercing blue lakes lie like mirrors among the greenery of forests, and mountain streams flow into rivers and feed the juicy grass of free quiet meadows. No wonder the Azores are called: "blissful" or "emerald" islands.

And the Azores is one of the best places in the world to watch marine animals. In summer, whale migration routes pass through the islands, and you can observe various species of cetaceans near the islands.

MADEIRA

Madeira Island is the birthplace of the wine of the same name and the famous Cristiano Ronaldo. This is the island of eternal spring...

We are waiting for virgin nature and man-made tropical gardens. We will walk along the trails of the levadas, fr om where we will be able to observe stunning landscapes.

Let's start our trip to Madeira with a visit to a cane plantation and a rum factory. We will see the winery wh ere the famous Madeira fortified wine is born and its cellars. Let's go to the local market to taste exotic fruits that are found only on this island. We swim in the natural lava pool, which was formed right in the ocean. And of course, we will visit the most popular viewing platforms of the island.

After visiting these places, you will not want to leave this paradise. Another place will appear on your map where you want to return again.

День 1. Arrival to Lisbon

Arrival in Lisbon and acquaintance with the city (depends on your arrival time).

Picturesque Lisbon is not like one of the capitals of Europe - a colorful and surprisingly sensual city with numerous bright sights is one of the most interesting places on our continent. This is a city that is able to fall in love with absolutely everyone.

Diverse, open, colorful, architectural, cheerful, spontaneous - all these epithets can be absolutely accurately attributed to the Portuguese capital.

День 2. Flight to the Azores

Free time in Lisbon. Flight to San Miguel Island. We rent a car and go to the town of Ponta Delgada. Check-in at the villa, rest. If you wish, you can walk around the capital of the Azores (depending on the time of arrival).

День 3. Sao Miguel island, Azores

Let's start our trip to the Azores by getting to know the island of San Miguel, first - its western part.

So what is worth seeing here?

The first location is the abandoned Monte palace hotel. This is the first 5 * hotel built on the island, which worked for a little over a year and closed due to lack of demand for rooms. The ghost hotel is quite large, containing several restaurants, a bar, a nightclub and a bank.

Next, we will get acquainted with one of the seven natural wonders of Portugal - Lake Sete Cidades, consisting of two separate lakes, which are connected by a small strait. These lakes are called Lagoa Verde (Green Lake) and Lagoa Azul (Blue Lake). They are interesting because the water in them is of different colors. It is the photographs of these lakes that are most often published in articles about the Azores. According to legend, the lakes got such deep and unusual shades because of the tears of the blue-eyed princess and the green-eyed shepherd, who fell in love with each other, but could not be together because they were fr om different classes. Fr om grief, the unfortunate lovers cried so long and much that they eventually filled these two lakes with their tears.

After lunch, we will go to one of the most beautiful beaches of the Azores - the black beach of volcanic origin Mosteiros Beach.

We will end our day with an acquaintance with an interesting place - the Hot Ocean (Ponta da Ferraria). In this place, thermal springs go directly into the ocean, here nature "built" a pool of solidified lava. In the place wh ere the hot lava came into contact with the cold ocean, a rocky landscape was formed. Swimming in the crater of a volcano, wh ere cold refreshing waves mix with the hot ocean is an incredible feeling!

День 4. Lake of Fire and Pineapple Plantation

We will start our day with a visit to the only pineapple plantation in Europe. After that, one of the most beautiful places on the island of Sao Miguel awaits us - Lagoa do Foga or Lake of Fire. We will have time to walk around and enjoy the magical landscapes.

After the Lake of Fire, we will go to the thermal pools near the Caldeira Velha waterfall. The earth is hot here, boiling water splashes directly fr om the bowels to the surface. The air is filled with the smell of sulfur, in puffs of steam it is difficult to see each other at arm's length. If you walk a little higher along the path, you will feel the incredible aroma of the forest and see the waterfall. By the way, you can swim in it at any time of the year.

The highlight of the day will be a visit to the Gorreana tea plantation. This family business was founded at the end of the 19th century and to this day is the only tea plantation in the European Union. Surprisingly, the collection and processing of tea is still done by hand. We will walk through the emerald fields wh ere tea is grown; we will see the whole process of tea production, and if you wish, we can purchase it

День 5. Volcanic lake and thermal pool

In the morning we will go to see the chapel of Nossa Senhora das Vitorias, which was built back in the 19th century with the money of the local landowner José do Canto, in honor of the Virgin Mary the Victorious.

We continue our tour on the Azores in the vicinity of Furnas Lake, where bubbling and sulphurous water with steam is knocked out of the bowels of the earth. Nowhere in the Azores do you feel volcanic activity like in this place. It is in this park that the delicacy “Сozido das Furnas” is prepared. The main feature of this delicacy is that the meat and vegetables are stewed right in the bowels of the earth next to the thermal springs.

After lunch, we will have time to relax and recharge in the Parque Terra Nostra thermal pool. Due to the high content of iron, the water in it is golden in color. Bathing in this water is very beneficial for health.

День 6. whale safari and park

After breakfast we will have an exciting whale safari!

In the local waters, you can see up to 24 representatives of whales: bottlenose dolphins and dolphins, sei whales and minke whales, sperm whales and blue whales! Different species have different behavior. For example, sperm whales often jump out of the water. There is a hypothesis that in this way the cub communicates with its mother, indicating its location. Seeing a jumping cub, there is a very high probability that the mother will soon make a return jump, and then they will converge in the middle.

After lunch, we will head to the Green Island National Park or Ribeira dos Caldeirões, a picturesque park with a waterfall surrounded by water mills, azaleas and hydrangea flowers. By the way, hydrangea is a symbol of the Azores. About 20 endemic plants grow in the park.

After visiting the park, we will go to the eastern part of the island of Sao Miguel, the town of Nordeste. This is the oldest, highest and "colorful" place on the island. We are waiting for observation platforms with incredible landscapes and picturesque panoramas.

In the evening we will go on a short trek to the Salto Do Prego waterfall. The route is very picturesque: the hiking trail goes through low hills, through the forest and several villages. There are small waterfalls along the way. And tomorrow we continue our vacation on the islands of Portugal.

День 7. Flight to Madeira

In the morning we will fly to Madeira Island. After the move, we will go to the beach to catch the warm rays of the sun.

Today we will return to the villa early, have a barbecue and relax on the terrace.

День 8. Madeira Island

We will start our tour of Madeira with an introduction to the colorful Lavradores Farmers Market. Here, the capital of Madeira can be tasted and imprinted with its amazing aroma. In the market you can buy exotic fruits that are found only on this island: bananas and also various varieties of "passion fruit". This place perfectly embodies Funchal itself, the capital of the island of Madeira, with its variety of colors and richness of natural gifts.

Eat, now you can drink! What is a holiday on the island of Madeira without wine tasting! We go to one of the most famous factories for the production of fortified wine in Madeira - Blandy's Wine Lodge. In one of the oldest cellars in Funchal, the Madeira Wine and Wine Museum is open. The museum is dedicated to the history and traditions of the local wine industry and the national trademark - "vinho da Madeira".

At the top of Mount Monte above the city of Funchal stands a white three-story building surrounded by an exotic park. This is the Tropical Garden, Monte Palace and Museum. The harmonious beauty of the charming corner of Madeira has been created by several generations of its owners. Monte Tropical Garden is one of the most beautiful man-made places on the island. This place is on the top of the "what to see in Madeira" list.

День 9. Rom factory and Ponta de San Lorenzo

Today we will have an active start to the day, we will go on a short trek along the Levadas. Levadas are irrigation canals along which hiking trails are laid. This is one of the main attractions of Madeira Island. At the end of the route, a beautiful waterfall awaits us, the water is not very warm, but you can swim in it.

After lunch we will visit the town of Santana, which has a theme park with traditional Madeiran houses. The houses are very unusual and colorful, as if descended from the pages of fairy tales. Each of them is built of stone, has a trihedral shape, the roof is covered with straw, and the houses themselves are painted in bright colors.

“Yo, ho-ho and a bottle of Rum...” - after lunch we will go to the factory for the production of a “pirate” drink. Here you can watch with your own eyes the process of pressing sugar cane in a giant meat grinder with its subsequent processing into Rum. It will be possible to buy a bottle in the store at the factory, and in the evening at the villa you can taste it in a sincere atmosphere.

We will meet sunset on the easternmost part of the island - Cape Ponta de San Lorenzo. This amazingly beautiful place is famous for its lunar landscapes. Space, fresh wind and the sound of waves, rocks up to 180 m high and rounded boulders. The local landscape is completely different from the rest of the island and completely unpredictable: volcanic soils form interesting landscapes, both in color and in shape. This is the most severe part of the island, here you will not find tall trees, palm trees or flowers - this is the realm of grass, cacti and low shrubs.

День 10. Valley of the Nuns

Are you tired of stunning landscapes yet? Tourism in Madeira, it is like that) Today we are going to another picturesque place on the island. The village of Kural das Freiras, also known as the "Valley of the Nuns", is located among the rocks along the river in the supposed crater of a volcano.

The next stop is a glass-floored observation deck located on the highest cape in Europe. It offers stunning views of the endless ocean, small plots of cultivated land at the foot of the cliff, as well as panoramic views of the village of Camara de Lobos and the capital of Madeira Island - Funchal. Boca de Encumeada is a point from where, in good weather, you can see two coasts of the island at once: the north and south.

After lunch, we will relax in the Natural Swimming Pools. When the flows of molten magma that came to the surface were cooled by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, pools filled with water formed near the coast. Due to the fact that the lava pools are connected to the ocean, the water in them is regularly updated and remains very clean.

We will meet our last sunset in Madeira at the westernmost point of the island - Cape Farol da Ponta do Pargo. The road to it leads through a tunnel. You dive into it by car, and you emerge near the lighthouse overlooking the ocean.

День 11. Flight home

Our trip to Madeira is coming to an end. We buy souvenirs, have breakfast and go to the airport. Flight to Lisbon.

We say goodbye to new friends and go home.
