Update (July 24, 12 p.m. ET): Due to popularity, this deal is now sold for departures October 1-15. Ancient people believed the Azores islands marked the end of the world, mythologists claim they are the remnants of the lost continent of Atlantis and travellers boast of finding this hidden gem in the Atlantic. Embark on a weeklong trip to explore the storied islands for $679 per person including international airfare and a 4-star hotel stay.
This deal from yAzores saves up to $230 on current pricing and includes:
Depart: Wednesdays from October to March.
Travellers stay at the Lince Azores Great Hotel in Ponta Delgada near two of the islands' popular beaches. Pack a picnic and take in the scenery from waterfront cliffs -- the islands' unique landscape has green hills tumbling down toward gleaming volcanic lakes, soaring mountains and the deep blue of the Atlantic.
Journey to the centre of the island to see the untouched Lagoa do Fogo (Lagoon of Fire) -- a crater lake in a stratovolcano. Travellers can rent bikes, go hiking or canoeing to explore on their own or take a day tour of one of the other islands in the archipelago. The islands' isolated location, where a rental car is recommended, also make them the perfect place to spot whale and dolphins.
