The tiny island of Corvo is the most remote and smallest of the islands in the Azorean archipelago, at 6.5 kilometres long and 4 kilometres wide. With only one village and 430 inhabitants, this four day tour offers the chance to see island life up close. High on the hills overlooking the village is the vast volcanic crater of the Caldeirao, which at 300 metres deep and 2 kilometres wide is a sight to behold.
Our Azores Experiences are land-only packages that can be tailored in to any of our Azores holidays. They feature extra activities such as cooking tours, trips to some of the remotest - barely inhabited islands, visits to UNESCO World Heritage sites and more. Ask our Azores Specialists to add an Azores Experience into your holiday or for more information on the numerous experiences the Azores has to offer.
Arrive at Corvo airport and transfer to the only guest house on the island, Comodoro Guest House. Check in for 3 nights.
Enjoy a day in the tiny village of Vila Nova do Corvo with its few streets and traditional way of life before taking a drive by taxi to the Caldeirao - the focal point of the island's landscape. Resulting from the collapse of the top of a volcano, this vast crater is full of water creating an aqua marine lake surrounded by volcanic rock. From the lookout at Caldeirao, marvel at the view across the island out towards the ocean. (B)
