Green Azores Island Rambler
Azores Portugal

Welcome to the Azores, a collection of nine green and volcanic islands in the middle of the Atlantic with a wonderful climate that creates a paradise for orchid lovers (especially on the island of Flores).  The Azores are also one of the best places in the world to see whales and dolphins and among the most sighted species are the sperm whale, the fin whale, common dolphin, bottlenose dolphin and Atlantic spotted dolphin. Your horseback adventure with Hidden Trails will be a discovery of the Isle of São Miguel, which has an extensive network of secluded tracks that are perfect for exploring by horseback. These paths have been built throughout the centuries throughout the countryside and most are still used by rural farmers going about their daily routines. Your base for this wonderful riding holiday is at a rural Quinta (farm) on the south of the island not far from the main town of Ponta Delgada, home to some beautiful examples of Portuguese architecture dating back to the 17th Century. There are five lovely guest rooms, each with en suite facilities as well as a comfortable dining room and lounge.

The riding week offers a collection of half and full day rides combined with interesting sightseeing trips into towns, craters and hot springs. Experience a different experience and new scenery each and every day. On some days horses and riders are transported to different trail heads, providing for riders the most variety of trails possible, different landscapes and riding paces. These unique variations can make it seem almost as if someone has taken small parts from the five continents, blended them all together and tossed it into the ocean to create exotic Sao Miguel. Some people even say this island of the Azores is the sunken Atlantis.
