Fodor’s editors announced today that the Azores were one of their 21 best places to go in 2013.
The unspoiled nature, mild climate and European culture of the Azores Islands are just four hours from Boston - making them the closest (and one of the more affordable) destinations in Europe.
SATA Airlines has packages that depart from Boston’s Logan Airport (with national connections) which include roundtrip, non-stop air, six nights lodging and daily breakfast - starting at $999 per person. To book a trip, call 800-762-9995 or visit http://www.sata.pt for more details.
The Azores are the closest point in Europe to North America. The islands were created by volcanic activity millions of years ago, which have created a stunning and dramatic environment. From the black lava cliffs of the island of Terceira, to mythical Mountain Lake of Fire on São Miguel, the Azores offers an intensely green and sculptured landscape. This ocean-enveloped land enjoys a mild climate year-round between 60°F and 80°F.
The National Geographic Center for Sustainable Destinations recently named the Azores islands as the world’s second most appealing islands destination in its fourth annual Destination Scorecard survey. A panel of 522 experts reviewed conditions on 111 islands and archipelagos. The Azores received the title of “Authentic, unspoiled, and likely to remain so.”
