Almost half-way between Portugal and Cape Cod is the most extraordinary and beautiful group of islands. Years ago, they were the ‘halfway house’ for the first transatlantic cables and are now a popular resting place for transatlantic sailors. We will visit hot springs, fumaroles, calderas, small meadows and see some rather amazing little vineyards. We will visit 3 islands – Pico (Portugal’s highest mountain), San Miguel and Faial and we return to the delightful Terra Nostra Hotel surrounded by exotic gardens and a natural swimming pool with hot water. We should see many exotic plants during our walks.
