Once the trip has started, if a request is made to change the contracted services for reasons not related to the agency (e.g., extending the number of nights of stay, changing the flight), the prices of the touristic services may not correspond to those published on the website that prompted the contract.

If the proposed replacement organized trip is of a lower price, the client will be refunded the price difference accordingly.


The client or their companions are free to cancel the trip at any time.

We promise that the Azores will never leave you. They captivate with their wild and vigorous natural landscape, the color of their green painted with humidity, and the infinite sea that changes its hue at the command of the clouds!

Continuing on our way we will come to a dirt track where we cross the Ribeira do Ferreiro bridge and then follow a small trail that goes towards the cliff.
