Corvo, Azores

Description

Corvo, Azores

Corvo is the smallest island of the Azores, only 17 km2 of land surface, and located far west into the Atlantic ocean, north of its big sister Flores.

It’s a huge bump of volcanic rock, consisting of a 2000 m wide and 700 m high caldera with lakes and islets in its centre. The walk around the caldera is difficult and tricky, but a part of it is described as a trail by the local authorities. From the end of the road to the caldera, a trail goes down to its green boggy bottom. On the eastern slopes are fields with cattle and gardens.

Check the list of all nine Azores islands.
