Off the Beaten Track: Azores

Approximately 3¿ hours
Strenuous Activity 

Enjoy an off-road adventure in the Azores, crossing small streams far from the daily hustle and bustle of the city, as your journey takes you into the mountains. Trees indigenous to the area, hydrangeas and other varieties of vegetation cover the soft edges of the valleys -- a serene setting of sparkling waters and small villages. This whole area feels as if it is lost in time and the region of vast farmland -- the breadbasket of the Azores -- provides food and wealth for the population of the islands. Interestingly, modern technology often takes a back seat here as the land is worked according to age-old tradition.


Minimum age is 12 years. Pregnant women and guests with a history of back or neck problems are not allowed to participate.
