Guidebook to 70 walks on the Azores, a remote archipelago in the North Atlantic Ocean. Most of the walks are easy or moderate, with a few graded difficult. The selection is spread across all nine islands, offering much variety, from easy village-to-village walks to remote and mountainous walks, including Portugal's highest mountain, Pico.

Most routes are easy or moderate, but a few walks are difficult. There is a spread of routes from short and easy walks to longer, steeper and more rugged ones.
