Illustrated with colour photographs and delicate line drawings by Czech artist Hedvika Fraser, this fourth edition tempts travellers across the Atlantic Ocean to these remote islands. Glittering blue coastlines and spectacular volcanic landscapes characterise this archipelago that erupted from beneath the ocean some five million years ago. Fully updated, Bradt’s bestselling Azores provides practical information and unparalleled features on culture, history, and festivals. The best walks are described along with information on where to eat and sleep and how to get around. Take a magical tour discovering Europe’s westernmost coast – the islands of Flores; visit Europe’s only tea plantations; explore the hot springs and gurgling mud pools of Furnas.

  • Bradt’s Azores was the first guide to the islands and is still the most comprehensive for all nine islands
  • Information on watching whales and dolphins in their natural habitat
  • Beautiful illustrations of flora and fauna
  • Excellent maps and suggested walking routes
