The paradise archipelago in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean is renowned for its natural beauty with dense and diverse vegetation. The Azores are best known for volcanic landscape full of crater lakes and geothermal springs.
The Azores archipelago, located in a contact zone of three tectonic plates, displays a rich and diversified volcanic landscape with basaltic lava flows. There are 271 lava tubes and caves spread all over the archipelago (48% in the Pico Island and 26% in Terceira Island). São Miguel is the largest and most volcanically active of the nine Azore Islands. The geology of the island is marked by three stratovolcanoes: Água de Pau (Fogo), Sete Cidades and Furnas. In the western part of Ponta Delgada city, you will find Gruta do Carvão, the longest lava tunnel of São Miguel Island (about 2,5 km of total length).
Mount Pico, on the island of Pico, is the highest point in Portugal, at 2,351 m (7,713 ft). Like Hawaii, the Azores are some of the tallest mountains on the planet, measured from their base at the bottom of the ocean to their peaks.
