This 12 day holiday is an ideal way to explore the central islands of the Azores, starting and ending on our home base of Terceira.
The holiday is the perfect combination of sailing, adventure and discovering the islands of Graciosa, São Jorge, Faial, Pico and Terceira. Transfer from the Airport of Terceira to the Marina on the island where you will board the stunning 2019 yacht, the Elan Impression i50, the largest touristic sailing yacht in the Azores. On board, breakfast, bedlinen and bath towels are all included and during sailing days, light meals are also served on board. When on land, reservations in local restaurants are made for guests to be able to discover the local gastronomy first hand. Our experience of the local islands and sailing conditions have allowed us to calculate the times based on motoring when there is no wind and the itinerary has been designed to allow every guest the opportunity to explore the islands, the culture, heritage, nature and traditions with plenty of time to also be able to relax. Also included in the boat trip is the chance to make adventure stops at sea, ideal for swimming, canoeing, snorkelling and much more.
We will pre order your car rental, book your guided excursions or give you detailed directions to make it easy to find exactly where to go and what to do, including documentation (hiking tracks, island maps etc). Choose from hiking, golf, diving, private guided tours, whale watching, swimming with dolphins and much more. Your itinerary is only limited by your imagination!
Experience the Atlantic Ocean with all it’s natural beauty and observe dolphins, whales, sea turtles and the incredible wildlife of the ocean as nature intended.
While it is our intention to adhere to the route described above, there is a certain amount of flexibility built into the itinerary and on occasion it may be necessary, or desirable to make alterations due to our style of travel and the regions we visit, travel can be unpredictable as all Sailing holidays packages are subject to prevailing weather conditions and the skippers approval for a safe, reliable, and fun sailing holiday experience.
