Feel like embarking on a week-long trip to a group of islands brimming with rugged natural beauty? How about for less than $600?

Azores Getaways, a tour operator based in Ponta Delgada, is offering a deal called the Terceira Package. For $599, a trip to the Azores’ Terceira Island includes roundtrip flights from Boston, airport transfers, seven nights of accommodations, and breakfast each morning.

On the island, visitors can explore volcanoes, fortresses, and miles of unspoiled beauty, not to mention extraordinary local cuisine and colorful seaside cities. The Azores are exploding as a popular travel destination—and thankfully, they’re only a four-hour flight from Boston.
