An Adventurous Summer in the Azores Atlantic Archipelago

An Adventurous Summer in the Azores Atlantic Archipelago

TAP Air Portugal is offering customers up to 25% off return flights from Lisbon to the Azores when they add a stopover in Portugal to their booking.
Through TAP’s popular and award-winning stopover programme, customers visiting the far-flung Atlantic Archipelago of the Azores can also explore Portugal for up to 10 days at no extra cost on their outward or return journey.

For nearly 80 years, TAP has brought the remote Azores closer to Europe for those keen to explore its dramatic scenery, with the airline operating five daily flights to the Archipelago.

The nine volcanic islands that make up the Azores feature majestic waterfalls, hot springs and quaint towns.

São Miguel Island, the largest of the Azores Archipelago is home to the largest city, Ponta Delgada, which boasts a rich history complete with unique gothic architecture and a modern cosmopolitan vibe.

The island is easy to navigate and offers a wide range of outdoor and nature activities with the surrounding waters being a favourite for whale and dolphin watchers.


The less-visited Terceira Island is home to the UNESCO World Heritage city of Angra do Heroísmo, which was a frequent port-of-call for ships between Europe and America from the 15th to the 19th century.
Visitors to the island can also go underground and explore its unique and cavernous lava tubes, allowing them to get up and close to a once highly active volcano, which helped create the island’s dramatic and unforgettable landscape

TAP is the only airline to fly to the Azores year-round from London via Lisbon, flying three times a day to the capital Ponta Delgada and twice daily to Terceira Island. Return fares from London to Ponta Delgada start from £223 and to Terceira Island from £218, including all taxes and charges.
