Sao Jorge Island is known as the ex-libris of hiking routes in the Azores.
These hiking routes were once the only connections beteween villages and populations, carrying fish, coal and farm products to exchange.
It is this network of walking paths and trails that have been rehabilitated and made available to all for landscape enjoyment of this island in the heart of the Azores.
The organization and operation of the HIKING TRAILS will be made not only on marked trails
but also on trails near Fajãs with great ecological, scenic and cultural value. We want to focus this type of
service for small groups in order to reduce the environmental impact and to value the interaction between
clients and guides, while also providing a better customized service and enhancing the environmental and
cultural interpretation. The trails guarantee our participants the observation of wonderful landscapes where,
among other features, we highlight the various Fajãs, waterfalls, the ocean and a whole set of details related
to the natural and cultural heritage that the island of São Jorge has to offer. At the same time we will try to
involve the clients in genuine experiences with strong local influence, seeking to establish an interaction with
the local population and it's culture, for example through it's gastronomy (e.g. coffee, vineyards, cheese).
