Bathed in the warm waters of the Gulf Stream, these nine volcanic islands rise up from the mid-Atlantic ridge. On a series of easy day walks we explore five of the unspoilt islands, discovering crater lakes, thermal springs, deep gorges and craggy coastlines. We can also take boat trips in search of whales and spend time in picturesque fishing villages.
