Walkers, of course, are well looked after in the Azores, but thrill seekers looking for something a little less tame will be equally spoiled. São Miguel, São Jorge and Flores offer canyoning options, with the latter providing the most choice when it comes to an itinerary for every level of skill. With so many waterfalls cascading into ravines, it doesn’t get much better than this. Mountain bike trails criss-cross the islands, with the exhilaration level up to the individual – go as wild as you like. Add to the mix scuba diving, surfing, horseback riding and kayaking and whether you opt for land or sea, there are plenty of opportunities to score your adrenaline rush.
