When walking through dense coastal woods, junipers and patches of Laurel forest, you should not be surprised if you find along the way waterfalls where you can cool yourself or typical houses, some of which have been converted to rural tourism units. On trails along the coast, you can admire the jagged slopes with rock formations that sometimes form natural pools where, at the end of a long walk, a bath to refresh and regain strength feels great. There are many different types of trails that are well suited to different ages and physical conditions, with varying degrees of difficulty and length. The Nature that the Azores offer those who visit them showcases unique and varied landscapes, which can be reached through about 60 approved and marked walking trails spread across the different islands, comprising a network of about 500 km of trails. In addition to the landscapes that are a feast for the eyes of any ordinary lover of nature, many trails feature great biological, geological and even historical and ethnographic interest, which can be interpreted by experts from tourism companies that operate on the islands.
