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.

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

Then, you will sail to 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.

Further west, you will discover 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.

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

From Faial, often called “the blue island” due to the myriad hydrangeas that cover most of the island during the summer months, don’t miss the chance to visit Horta, a lively, world-renowned marina.
