The tiny island of Corvo is the most remote island in the Azorean archipelago and, measuring just 6.5 kilometres long and 4 kilometres wide, it's also the smallest. With only one village and home to just 430 inhabitants, this four-day trip to Corvo gives visitors the opportunity to experience remote island life up close, immersing themselves in a community which still holds traditions unchanged for generations.
Ilha de Corvo translates as 'the island of the crow'. Here, sheer cliffs give way to slender beaches and rugged coast, while the tip of Monte Gorde volcano - the very lava-spewing mass which formed the island - has collapsed and sunk to form the caldera that dominates the northern half of the island.
The crater of the Caldeirao reaches 300 metres deep and 2 kilometres wide, so one of the highlights of any trip to Corvo is making the journey uphill for the impressive views afforded from the rim.
