Majestic. Ethereal. Vibrant. Peaceful. Harmonious. All the words that come to mind when reflecting on my time in the Azores. There is a spiritual essence to this place that must be experienced in person. Videos and photos capture some of it, but you must visit. Our guide, Lisa, was exceptional. I am a better person because of her in our short weekend together.

One of the best!

One of the better side trips that Remote Year has available. Not only is the island just beautiful but our guide, Jorge, was extremely knowledgeable, accommodating, and generally a solid guy to be with for the weekend. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Lisbon/Portugal.
