Named one of 2011’s 10 Best Summer Trips by National Geographic, the archipelago of the Azores is often referred to as the Lost Continent of Atlantis. Once a stepping-stone for sailors en route to the New World, these fascinating islands are now being retraced by modern sailors. Indeed, the Azores are visited every year by cruise ships heading east or west across the Atlantic.

Formed from volcanic activity, this archipelagic region is composed of nine islands located approximately 900 miles off the coast of Portugal. The islands are home to lush, sculptured landscapes; waterfalls cascading down sheer black cliffs, hot mineral springs, pastures sprinkled with juniper and heather, villages nestled inside a collapsed volcano on the shores of two lakes: one green, the other blue.
