The Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce is hosting a trip to the Azores Islands in Portugal this spring, May 24 through May 31. The informational meeting regarding itinerary, cost, and other logistics will be held Thursday, Feb. 21, from 5-7 p.m. in Conference Room A of the Chamber.
Whether you’re new to traveling and want to start your passport off with a bang, a seasoned traveler that has yet to visit this exotic part of the world or a business professional that is looking to expand into the global market, the Chamber’s carefully chosen itinerary will show you the beautiful and enriching sites and offerings of the Azores Islands.
We’ll be island hopping from Sao Miguel to Terceira during the eight-day itinerary. You’ll visit Sao Miguel’s breathtaking lakes, experience a tranquil and beautiful paradise, and tour a pineapple plantation. Sao Miguel is also home to dozens of thermal springs and the exotic botanical gardens of Parque Terra Nostra. Then you’ll hop over to Terceira for a drive along the coastline, a visit to a volcanic chimney and continue one to Biscoitos, with vistas of rolling hills, and ‘curreletas’ – small vineyards protected by black basalt walls where the famous Verdelho is produced.
Local cuisine and a variety of day tours will astound the senses and give travelers an enlightening glimpse into these once remote islands.
The trip is open to both Members and the community. Cost is $2459 for double occupancy and includes all airfare, hotel accommodations, meals and day trips.
For more information, please contact Mike Evans, President & CEO, at (630) 544-3382.
