About Futurismo Azores Adventures - Portugal
With more than 25 years of experience operating in the Azores archipealgo, there's no doubt we've mastered the art of the active holiday. When the Azores turned away from the whaling industry, we saw what the future of the islands would look like and led the travel evolution to whale watching. Ever since then we’ve been carving out unparalleled active travel experiences from every corner of our jaw-droppingly gorgeous archipelago. We are the only Azores-based active tourism company offering year-round, high-quality, professionally guided sea- and land-based activities - including whale watching, hiking, cycling, jeep safaris, birding, dolphin swims, van tours, sunset cruises, geotourism, kayaking and SUP - throughout the volcanic islands. Operating daily tours and offering a range of thematic packages, we provide activities for travellers who want to experience the Azores in a way that is befitting the culture, wildlife, and natural beauty of the archipelago. The Azores archipelago is strategically located on the globe between America and Europe and since the XV century has had a strong role in the world’s connections. These volcanic bright green islands enclose beautiful and unspoiled landscapes where some of the most exciting trails and sea activities can be done. The mild climate throughout the year permits the offer of activities all year. The Azores islands are considered one of the 10 best sights for Whale Watching in the world. Our company offers unique Whale Watching Trips all year around where 24 species of cetacean can be sighted. Another exclusive activity is the Swimming with Dolphins trip where people can swim/snorkel in the ocean with wild dolphins. The variety of trails goes from walking through abandoned old villages, passing through hot waterfalls in the deep forest, walking on the top of volcanic craters with views over amazing lakes and the sea, tasting thermal waters and a meal that is cooked about 6hours with steam coming from the ground, bathing in grey sand beaches, learning about hundreds of endemic vegetation and animal species and experience the locals culture. The experienced nature guides and biologists are fluent in several languages and provide unique experiences in one of the Atlantic’s best kept secret. A new destination considered by the National Geographic Traveler Magazine as the 8th best summer destination for 2011 and also as the 2nd best islands destination for sustainable tourism in the world.
