Escape to Portugal’s Azores this Winter

Azores is offering an off-grid travel deal: a week-long trip to Portugal’s exotic islands — the Azores — for under $600 (accommodations + airfare included!). The Azores, an under-the-radar archipelago cluster of nine stunning, exotic and rugged islands of the autonomous region of Portugal, are under a four-hour direct flight from the East Coast (Boston, with new JFK flights just announced) and about to explode in 2018.

Their Terciera package deal includes:

  • Roundtrip flights from Boston
  • 7 nights of accommodations
  • Select meals
  • A week-long of once-in-a-lifetime experiences

NOTE: there’s a 24-hour countdown on the site that renews itself each day (there’s currently no expiration).

The islands’ premier tour operator,, curates air-inclusive customized and intentionally-packaged experiences to showcase the islands’ most stunning vistas, diverse adventure experiences, and insider local hot spots to help travelers navigate the Azores’ best of the best. Adventure travelers can take advantage of a week long immersion into the island of Terciera ($599), and enjoy experiences like exploring the ancient lava cave of extinct volcano Algar do Carvão, hiking through the island’s verdant valleys and stunning mountains, visiting the biggest Spanish Fortress outside of Spain, and whale and dolphin sitings. Azores Getaways make the islands more approachable and alleviates the headache of planning, while connecting travelers to the top insider experiences in the Azores.

The Azores, just 1,000 miles off the coast of Europe, offers incredibly diverse and stunning terrain– mountains, jungles, beaches, hot springs and more, and is a respite for Americans seeking adventure, diversity, culture and a short flight from the east coast (just 3 hours 55 minutes from Boston, with additional direct access from Oakland, California). Like Iceland, which quickly became a favorite stopover en route to Europe for tourists seeking gorgeous landscapes, the Azores rivals for its convenience, Instagram-enviable landscapes and bucket-list pursuits.
