You will be welcomed on Atyla in Ponta Delgada, where the crew will introduce the basics of living on board and some safety procedures, before starting the trip.

We will visit Horta, in Faial Island, and make a small painting with Atyla’s logo to leave a mark of our first visit to the archipelago. Then we will go to Terceira, where we’ll enjoy a city tour with some local friends and some hiking in the magnificent nature of the island before returning to São Miguel to sail around the island before coming back to Punta Delgada.

Along the entire way, we will try to stop at anchor at a couple of places, to go for a swim around the ship or on a beach nearby, and enjoy some snorkelling in these waters full of marine life. During the sailing, we will also try to spot some of the many cetaceans in the area.

All the islands in the Azores are unique in their own way. Whereas some have lively and bustling cities with countless nice cafes and streets, other islands give you an incredible ‘edge-of-the-world’ feeling, with cute villages and lots of local culinary specialities to try out.

After arriving back to Punta Delgada the 10th of October, we will spend the last night in the harbour and enjoy a night out before departing the day after.
