#1 of 28 Outdoor Activities in Horta
Though the weather was grey, windy, and rainy my first day on Faial, Luis managed to take me to some great spots and I learned so much about life on Faial, the history, the geography, and the ecology.
Pedro is a thoughtful and enthusiastic guide who hails from the island and is passionate about its culture, history and natural environment.

Bruno is very well informed about everything from volcanoes and nature, to history and current affairs - we learnt far more than if we had simply hired a car.
I felt like I've spent a great day with a friend instead of "being in a tour".

The island is pretty magical, the picnic in a little tucked away corner along the coast with a sample of local breads, cheeses, fruit and treats (and wine of course,) was just perfect.
... this time only half day tour between flights from Flores to Graciosa...I highly recommend Endemic Azores and Fred as a tour guide for Faial experience on day tours and more… Best regards, Daiga from Riga, Latvia

Some days the weather was better than others but they are always honest about the weather conditions and the animals we can see before going out.

Since the weather is rather mild there are plenty of days to visit the beach and swim or relax on the sand.

In summer, the Azores are a wonderful sailing area, but a Mediterranean sailor has to get used to the Atlantic wave.

Of course good weather helped but spotters on land we’re feeding info to Miguel the whole time and the marine biologist on board enthusiastically told us about what we were seeing.
... and take you up to walk around the crater then you cycle back down,remember you never need to peddle,get a bike with good brakes and turn right at the church or you’ll finish up the wrong side of Horta,good luck!
