Time goes by slowly

In the Azores, there is time to do a lot. It is the advantage of being on small islands and having a wide variety of places to explore.

The range of tours offered by Futurismo Azores Adventures includes several options such as hiking routes in rural or coastal areas, passing by ponds, streams, hot springs, fumaroles, mountains, forests, volcanic boilers, and old dirt roads.

The diversity of our trails

The green of the mountains, the blue of the ocean, and the traditional black and white dairy cows will surely be a constant presence in your line of sight throughout your stay on the island of São Miguel.

In all the islands there are official trails, with different extensions and difficulties for all levels.

Azoreans are excellent storytellers

Our hiking programs are designed and structured to provide memorable experiences. In addition to direct contact with nature, we seek to include knowledge and tradition, often transmitted by locals who, better than anyone, have beautiful stories to tell!
