How to get from the Azores airports to the closest city centres?

You will need to adjust to driving on the right side of the road, however! To reach the other islands, you will need to hop on a flight or go by ferry or boat, where available.

Bus Services: There are no official airport buses from Terceira airport to Lajes, but a local bus passes outside the terminal every 2 hours travelling to Praia da Vitoria.

Taxis: You can get a taxi into Lajes. The journey is quick, and prices depend on your final destination.

Horta Airport:

Taxis: Taxis are the quickest and easiest way to get into Horta. Alternatively, you can rent a car from the airport.

Hints and tips connected to navigating between terminals

All three major Azores-Islands airports only have one terminal, making them easy to navigate.

What are some things to do in the Azores Islands?

The lure of the Azores Islands is that there is plenty to see and do. The countryside is stunning with caldeiras, ancient lava tubes, crater lakes, and ocean views. There are some unique activities, such as the running of the bulls in Terceira. The bulls run down the streets, so be sure to plan ahead for a safe observation seat. Another popular option is the hot springs. Most Azores visitors agree that the cuisine makes the trip special. Although the Azores Islands are a region of Portugal, the food is decidedly their own. There are a few items you definitely should try while you are there, such as alcatra, massa sovada, local cheeses, and tons of fresh seafood that just came off the boats. For a unique treat, give the cracas a try – it might seem strange to eat a barnacle, but they are amazing!

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to the Azores Islands?

For stays in the Azores Islands of less than 90 days, you do not need a visa. If you plan to stay longer than that, you will need to get a tourist visa from a Portuguese consulate or embassy.
