Succumb to the magic of the Azores on a brand-new cruise brought to you by PONANT. This 8-day itinerary aboard Le Champlain will take you to the most beautiful sites of this volcanic archipelago resting in the heart of the Atlantic.

After boarding, you will sail to Horta, a lively, world-renowned marina, on the island of Faial, often called “the blue island” due to the myriad hydrangeas that cover most of the island during the summer months.

Further east, you will discover the port of Velas and the island of São Jorge, its lush reliefs and its spectacular cliffs at the foot of which can be observed fajãs, basalt platforms resulting from cliff-face erosion.

Then, you will sail to the picturesque port of Praia da Vitória on Terceira Island, known for its rich historical heritage. The city of Angra do Heroismo, once an important commercial port, is home to imposing fortifications and Baroque-inspired monuments from the 16th and 17th centuries.

Le Champlain will then sail to Lajes do Pico on the mountainous island of Pico, whose vineyard landscapes, characterised by a network of orderly stone walls, are listed as UNESCO World Heritage.

Finally, succumb to the charms of Ponta Delgada in São Miguel, as you discover not just the old town, the capital of the Azores, but also a stunning natural environment with hot springs, lakes and volcanic craters.
