fauna & flora in sao jorge island - azores

The geography of the island of S. Jorge and the existence of several microclimates transform this island into an Eden for flora and native fauna observation.

In the first part of this program, we will go for a walk on foot for observation. We will go through the footpath of Bardinhos where we can see several endemic species of the mountain range east of the island of S. Jorge.

In addition to the diverse fauna and flora that we will find here and there, the scenery is breathtaking, having the islands of the Central Group as background.

After having a break for lunch to taste the flavors of the island, we will go to the highest point of the island of S. Jorge: Pico da Esperança at 1057m of altitude. Here we can find a rare European orchid, Platanthera azorica that can be found in Pico da Esperança and some other places around you in the central mountain range of volcanic origin.
