Boston, MA (PRWEB) December 01, 2013
The allure of the Azores is their proximity to the U.S. – just 4 hours from Boston. But, a lack of both guidebooks and web planning sites to this emerging destination has been factor. SATA Airlines, the only airline to offer direct flights to the Azores from North America, has unveiled a new site at http://www.flytoazores.com to help its customers design the trip of a lifetime.
Passengers now have the option to add various adventure tours to their trip, including themed island tours such as exploring crater lakes, rocky coastlines, and volcanic hills on Faial, Terceira, Sao Miguel and other islands. They can also add whale watching, golf and more. Half and full day excursions come with guiding, transportation and some meals.
The new travel website, launched this week, helps traveler pick the right tours, hotels, activities and flights so that their vacation is exactly what they want, and made to fit their lifestyle. To book a trip, call a travel agent or SATA at 800-762-9995, or visit http://www.flytoazores.com for more details.
The Azores are dramatic volcanic islands with a mild climate just four hours east of Boston, and SATA is offering six night Air & Hotel packages with a choice of 26 hotels on five different islands, starting at just $1,099 per week/per person/double occupancy. Availability depends on choice of hotel, island and travel dates.
Flights depart and return on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays and passengers can upgrade from coach to SATA Plus Business-Class for just a few hundred dollars each way. Children fewer than six stay free, and pay only a child’s airfare.
There are six hotels offered on the island of Terceira, two on the island of Faial, two on the island of Pico, and 16 on the island of Sao Miguel. There is one hotel on both Santa Maria and Graciosa. Or visit two islands in the space of 6 day and chose one hotel on each island.
About the Azores
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 the 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 as the world’s second most appealing island 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.”
SATA connects New England with the beautiful islands of the Azores. Year-round flights are available from Boston, with connecting service to Lisbon, Porto and Madeira. For information call 800-762-9995 or visit http://www.flytoazores.com.
