Be a Sustainable Tourist

Whenever you travel you are inevitably interacting with the natural resources and cultural heritage of the destination.

In order for your trip to the Azores to have a positive, mindful and sustainable impact we leave you three essential tips:

– Choose to use public transport, ride a bike or simply walk whenever possible thus contributing to the reduction of fuel consumption;

– Consume local products, which are fresher, healthier and tastier, supporting at the same time the sustainable growth of the local economy;

– Create a travel kit with small utensils which you are going to need during the trip such as cutlery, bottles, glasses or a shopping bag. This way you will avoid the unnecessary consumption of dozens of disposable objects.
