Dive deep into the woods and photograph the mystical forest of Terceira Island. The Azores belongs to the biogeographic region of Macaronesia, one of the richest regarding biodiversity in Europe.Laurisilva forests are a glimpse of ancient “cloud forests,” a relic of what remains of the vegetation that dates back to the Tertiary Age which disappeared due to glaciation. One of the most significant evidence of this forest is in Terceira Island, with a handful of endemic species that don’t exist anywhere else in the world. If you enjoyed what you’ve read, this tour is definitely for you.

The weather in the Azores is very unpredictability. It can be sunny and hot or windy with strong showers – all in the same day! You never know what to expect.

This tour is not just for photographers, but also for all people who want to embark on a great adventure. Suitable for all levels of photographic knowledge, whether you are a beginner, a hobbyist or skilled photographer, this tour will encourage you to question and experiment different techniques, taking into account that the Azores always has something new and unpredictable to offer.

We promise you that you will come home with the best possible images of the Azores, and therefore be able to share all the fantastic experiences and memories with your family and friends personally and via social media.

Although we have a specific itinerary planned, we also allow some flexibility to take advantage of photographic opportunities we encounter along the day.
