Azores Cruises Overview
Azores cruises with Fred. Olsen will take you to a host of isolated, exceptionally diverse emerald-green islands with stunning volcanic scenery, beautiful lakes and majestic mountains. Once a stopping point for Transatlantic flying boats, these islands aren’t just incredibly scenic but rich in history too.
Praia da Vitória – located on the isle of Terceira – was once heavily fortified and parts of the old town wall can still be seen, overlooked by the 16th century Fort of Santa Catarina. A vibrant, historic town centre features the Church of Santa Cruz and the Town Hall; while popular tours include Angra do Heroísmo, the former capital of the Azores.
The pretty Faial Island is home to Horta, a marvellous, unspoilt treasure. You’ll be almost immediately enveloped in beauty at the Blue Flag marina, where an open-air exhibition showcases visiting sailors’ paintings. Stunning Landscapes surround the city – a mix of lakes, cliffs and valleys – as well as the intriguing volcanic structures, Caldeira and Capelinhos.
Ponta Delgada – located on São Miguel Island – boasts a fine array of parks, cobbled streets and squares, a modern marina and waterside cafés. It’s also the gateway to the extinct Sete Cidades Volcano and its picturesque crater lakes; the hot springs and fumaroles of the mystical Furnas Valley; and much more.
Lajes das Flores is the westernmost island of the Azores, named after the abundance of colourful flowers flourishing in the temperate climate, including hydrangeas, cannas and wild roses. Blend in the typically rugged volcanic landscapes interspersed with lakes and waterfalls, and you’ll discover an inviting and incredibly diverse landscape. This is exploration at its most rewarding.
