Set just 2,000 miles east of Boston, The Azores are, without question, some of the most beautiful islands in the world… and yet they remain off the radar. The Azores’ year-round mild climate gives these Atlantic islands a fresh, spring like quality no matter when you visit. No matter what the weather back home, it’s always between 58 and 74 degrees F in the Azores. Summer arrives in June and often stays until December. The lava-rich soils, fed by volcano eruptions of the past, nurture more than 1,200 species of plants, flowers and trees. The landscape varies from open fields lined with country roads to tiny towns perched on oceanfront cliffs.
