If unspoilt volcanic landscape whets your appetite, then the Azores may appeal to you. Located in the North Atlantic Ocean, the Azores consists of nine islands and offers a mild climate all year round. The landscape bursts with craters, caves and ravines, some of which are open to the public. If you seek adventure at sea, the islands are a hotspot for whale and dolphin watching, and extremely popular all year round with residents including the sperm whale and common dolphin. During the months from the end of March to the beginning of June, the largest mammal of them all passes through on its annual migration, the blue whale. Weather conditions are great for water sports such as kayaking, scuba diving or surfing. If you have the time, a visit to one of the Azores museums such as Fábrica da Baleia de Porto Pim that displays equipment that was used in the whaling industry.
