Faial Island, located approximately 180 miles northwest of Ponta Delgada in the Azores island chain, captivates visitors on first glance. Nicknamed the `Blue Island`, Faial`s fields and hillsides are dotted by ubiquitous and colorful hydrangeas. The main seaport on Faial Island is Horta, a town which was founded in the 15th century. Faial Island was formed by an extinct volcano, and the center of the island is occupied by a mile-long crater called a caldera. After enjoying the island`s beauty, visitors can kick back and relax in a geothermally-heated lagoon at the island`s renowned natural spa.

Start this unforgettable adventure in Lisbon (the capital of Portugal; full of medieval charm and modern sensibilities) and then, fly to Faial. Finally, catch a flight to Sao Miguel/Ponta Delgada (a glorious island filled with ocean views and volcanic scenery). This is a flexible vacation package.
