At 930 miles away from Lisbon
the volcanic islands of the Azores can be found out to sea, or rather, the Atlantic Ocean, to be precise. An enchanting archipelago, the green beauty of the islands is interspersed with tranquil lakes and volcanic landscapes. Scattered with flowers, the Azores islands gleam with the purity of nature, intact as if no one had ever lived there. A simple walk through the islands' countryside is captivating in itself. In addition, the locals are hospitable and the islands come alive with summer festivals and celebrations.
