São Miguel: It’s where all the famous pictures are taken

When we first decided to sail to the Azores, Maddie looked up pictures on Google and fell in love with the images.


The volcanic landscape with lakes in the craters were breathtaking!


Turns out, all these pictures were of Sao Miguel. We arrived in Faial in August, then sailed to Terceira where we spent the next 9 months! We had a 2 week excursion in Flores, which was beautiful, but still not the pictures we saw online.

After several months, we finally made our way to Sao Miguel and it was everything we wanted to see. The landscape is mind blowing and the scenery is better than the photos.
