The Azores have a network of Pedestrian Paths Classified by the Regional Government of the Azores and thus the security and tranquility of those who frequent these rails is guaranteed. These are classified by three levels of difficulty - easy, medium and difficult. Many of the trails take advantage of routes previously used by the inhabitants over the centuries, whether for day-to-day journeys, freight transport or cattle traffic. The mild temperature in the Azores allows us to explore our trails in any season. Due to weather conditions and terrain conditions, some rails may be temporarily unavailable.
