Walking on the Azores

Paddy Dillon

The Azores are nine islands that are very obviously volcanic in nature, having their origins at where the North American, Eurasian and African continental plates strain against each other. Their rugged slopes contrast with vivid green fields and the authorities have spent years creating a splendid network of signposted and waymarked walking trails. These offer anything from short walks to long-distance treks taking as much as four days. The book includes stunning photographs and detailed route maps, along with all the information a visitor needs in order to get around each island, keep themselves accommodated, fed and watered, and when the time comes, hop easily to the next island to continue their explorations. Portugal’s highest mountain, Pico, dominates the islands, and is the only peak that gets covered in snow in the winter.
