Ancient people believed the Azores islands marked the end of the world, and mythologists claim they are the remnants of the lost continent of Atlantis. Embark on a weeklong trip to this hidden gem in the Atlantic for $699 per person.
This deal saves up to $1000 on surrounding dates and includes:
Depart: Jan. 2, 4, 6, 9, 11, 13 -- a time when temperatures are in the 50s and 60s. Additional departure dates November 2014 - April 2015 are available and start at $65 more per person.
Described by Lonely Planet as "one of Europe's last great island adventures," the Azores provide a mixed landscape of volcanoes and shimmering sea. Travelers can choose between the São Miguel Park Hotel or the The Lince Azores Great Hotel in the former fishing village of Ponta Delgada, known for its mosaic of cobbled streets and waterfront promenade. Get a taste of Azorean cuisine -- dishes like cozido, a stew cooked using heat from geysers, are hard to find outside the archipelago.
Travelzoo Tip: For $200 more per person, add on an "experience pack," including a whale-watching cruise plus Jeep tours of Sete Cidades and Lagoa do Fogo, a lake nestled in the crater of a volcano.
