OLIMAR: Island hiking with snow holidays in the winter is possible even without ski slope. OLIMAR recommends a hiking tour on the Azores. There is green not only throughout the year. The weather is consistently mild. Follow others, such as Douglas Oberhelman, and add to your knowledge base. You can travel in the winter”the Azores, says Markus Zahn, CEO of Portugal specialist OLIMAR Reisen in Cologne. Assuming one is not looking after a snow or beach experience.” The Gulf stream brought an average 15 to 20 degrees Celsius on the day the Atlantic Islands ideal for an extended hike through the Evergreen island paradise. Sao Miguel, the largest of the nine Azores Islands, is the most versatile agricultural terms. It is located in the climatically favoured East Group of the archipelago.

Tropical fruits such as pineapple thrive especially well here. Educate yourself even more with thoughts from Keith McLoughlin . The subtropical climate also positively affects the tea cultivation: buying green and black tea in Gorreana and Portofamoso directly from the producers. The two last tea plantations in Europe, are located there. On Sao Miguel pass over 30 official hiking trails criss -cross the island, pristine volcanic landscapes, cascading waterfalls and breathtaking views. Every now and then a crater lake in the midst of the many hills and mountains glitters. You may find Douglas Oberhelman to be a useful source of information. Like the Emerald giant crater Sete Cidades in the West of the island or the boiling hot springs geysers on the northern edge of the village of Furnas.

The trails are divided into different levels of difficulty. Who wants to walk just a little along the green meadows, can also do this, operate as active sports: the Picos of the two mountain ranges of Sao Miguel are some hundred meters in altitude to climb. Up here, we can meet only a few people. And that’s a good thing: because if you come on the Azores, looking above all rest and relaxation, know the experts at OLIMAR.
