Azores

The Azores are a unique and privileged place for bird watching

The Azores are an archipelago located in the North Atlantic, between Newfoundland and the Iberian Peninsula, formed by nine islands of volcanic origin, with the islands divided in three groups: Eastern, Central and Western.

Santa Maria was the first to be discovered in 1427 by Diogo Silves and in the year 1452 Diogo Teive concluded the discovery of the Azores with the island of Flores and Corvo and began the human occupation of the archipelago. The island of São Miguel is the largest and presents a great diversity of landscapes, lagoons, waterfalls, natural pools, beaches, the laurissilva forests, pastures and several signs of its volcanic origin as is the case of fumarolas and hot springs.

There are no large thermal amplitudes because the islands have a temperate oceanic climate, and sea water is influenced by the Gulf current with temperatures varying between 15 º C and 25 ºC.
