The volcanic origin of the archipelago, the small size of the islands, and the short distance between some of them, make it easy for you to explore the region’s geodiversity at any time of the year, including its magnificent geolandscapes and geolocations.

Stand and stare at the collapsed calderas and their beautiful lakes, walk through the fajãs, see the volcanic ridges and the formations left behind by recent eruptions, discover the underground world by descending into caves and walking into lava tubes, or watch the bubbling hot springs. These are just some of the best reasons to visit the Azores. The region also has a number of interpretation centers giving visitors even further insight into its heritage.
