Meet the Azores Islands
Nine islands of wonder. This is what we’re talking about. I could go on and on about the Azores, because of its diversity and magic. Let me make this clear: a wedding in the Azores is the experience of a lifetime!
On these islands, nature rules. That’s often true for every portion of land formed by volcanos (don’t worry, they’re all extinct!). The somewhat artistic design created by ancient lava turned to solid rock creates astonishing landscapes at every corner.
You’ll find amazing lagoons, wrapped in mist and mystery; secluded beaches with warm waters; wine plantations you can’t even begin to understand how they grow out of stone, and the only tea plantations in Europe. Off shore, prepare yourself for quite a few rides watching dolphins and whales, while listening to the stories of way back when hunting whales was one of the main activities there.
Watching, listening and tasting: in a nutshell, this is what you’ll love the most doing in the Azores. And the flavours, the sounds, the scents and the views (oh, the views!) will stay with you forever, reminding you why we, in Portugal, have that word that seems impossible to translate. Saudade. You’ll know it when you feel it.
