Just my cup of tea: An island-hopping adventure in the very verdant Azores

Legend has it that car-maker Henry Ford offered his customers a choice of colours: black, black or black. The Azores are similar, only in green. Forget Fifty Shades: visit this Portuguese archipelago and you’ll find yourself saturated in more verdancy than you could ever imagine.

“One of the best tours in Europe”

Only five hours distance from Toronto, the Azores Archipelago means nature and protected environments. There is every shade of green and the lush pastures streaked with blue hydrangea in fields bordered with ferns and flowers. Many flowers sprinkle the slopes running down to the sea. Chestnut, beech and other trees intersperse the remains of the Laurisilva forest that predate human settlement. And there are all the volcanic features of craters and cones, lava flows, cliffs, ravines and caves, fumaroles and lagoons. Those are the natural ingredients to these islands that serve up stunning landscapes framed by the deep blue of the sea beyond.

Europe's best kept secret?

Vicky Power has one of the best experiences of her life in the little known islands of the Azores...

"You're going where?" was the inevitable response I received when I told friends about my upcoming holiday in the Azores. The Portuguese islands seem to be one of Europe's biggest secrets. Nine hundred miles off the coast of Portugal, they're definitely off the beaten path, but what most tourists obviously haven't cottoned on to is the fact they're only a four-hour, reasonably priced plane trip from Gatwick, so they're as easy to get to as a package holiday destination but with a heck of a lot more culture and nature to offer.
