I bought this guide instead of paying a tour company for self guided hiking and travel arrangements, for a one week trip to San Miguel.Pros good maps and trail descriptionsCons turned out I didn t really need to buy a guide at all There is a great hiking website for the azores with brochures and up to date info you can print out yourself ahead of time, which turned out to be super useful since when I traveled 3 4 of the island trails were closed due to rain damage.
Excellent product Condition, easy to read and follow great details This is the guide book to have if you are going to do any hiking in the Azores.
compact, sturdy and well organized Perfect to take on the trail.
Spent 10 days on Sao Miguel and used this book extensively to choose and plan hikes Handy format fits easily in a pocket Brought along a full map and we were set.
