When you catch your first glimpse of the Azores, it leaves you speechless. No wonder this Portuguese archipelago is labeled as "The Hawaii of Europe" and the "Islands of Color.” Set in the middle of the Atlantic, halfway between the United States and continental Portugal, Azores is a necklace of nine enchanting islands – São Miguel, Santa Maria, Terceira, Graciosa, São Jorge, Pico, Faial, Flores and Corvo. This stunning archipelago is comprised of bubbling thermal waters, geysers of rising steam, turquoise toned lagoons and bottle green lakes, which were create as a result of the 1766 volcanoes, nine of which are still active.
