Azorean Experiences - Corvo - OPEI
Being Islander in the Smallest Island of the Azores
Corvo across the water, neighbor of Flores island, is the remotest and tiniest of the islands of the Azorean archipelago, being 6.5 km long and 4 km wide. There is one tiny settlement Vila Nova do Corvo and, six kilometers uphill from the village, is the vast green (300m deep and 2 km wide), the volcanic crater of the Caldeirão, reached on a wonderful walk which offers views of green pastures, the ocean and the island of Flores.
Day by Day
Day 1 - Corvo
Arrival at the airport of Corvo and transfer to the hotel.
Day 2 - Corvo
Half Day tour around the island to visit the main attractions. Being the smallest island of the archipelago, with one only village, Vila Nova do Corvo with 430 inhabitants, and few streets, the visit to this island is done by local drivers, from the village until the "Caldeirão". The Caldeirão is the main element of the islands landscape and resulted from the collapse of the top of the central volcano of Corvo. Its interior is filled by a shallow lake and several small volcanic cones that cut the body of water and that, many claim, outline the drawing of the Azores Islands. From the Caldeirão lookout, it is possible to see this vast volcanic depression and enjoy the quiet calmness that characterizes this remote part of Europe.
