About this book

The nine islands of the Azores – Santa Maria, Sao Miguel, Pico, Faial, Sao Jorge, Terceira, Graciosa, Flores and Corvo – are situated in the middle of the Atlantic, three and a half hours from London. Still free from mass tourism, the archipelago, belonging to Portugal, is a Mecca for nature-lovers and walkers. Because of the varied geography of the islands, the variety of walks ranges from pleasant strolls through meadows and forests or along the coast, to challenging mountain hikes on Pico, Portugal's highest peak. In this Rother Walking Guide, Roman Martin offers a choice of 77 routes making up a cross-section of what each island offers. Each route is provided with comprehensive GPS data, a listing the most important features, detailed route descriptions, excerpts of maps with the routes marked in, and height profiles. The guide provides all of the information necessary for a successful walking holiday on the Azores.
