The Azores lie far out in the Atlantic Ocean. Nearly 1,400 kilometres from the Portuguese mainland, they are somewhat of an secret tip for hikers and cyclists. Especially since the islands are not really known for long lasting hours of sunshine. Even more as a weather kitchen with constantly changing conditions. Thus the perfect goal for our diversified Tamron Academy Workshop.
