12 days
Learn about ecological conservation efforts and sustainable agricultural practices as you experience the rugged coastlines, lush vegetation, and volcanic structures that make up the diverse geography of Portugal’s São Miguel Island. The Azores’ capital city, Ponta Delgada, is located on the island and largely impacted by geothermal activity, with no shortage of photo-worthy views.
