The "fun focused" enduro party is back in 2018. Located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and hidden from the rest of the world, the village of Faial da Terra on the Island of São Miguel will again host the Enduro fest, between March 1 and March 4, 2018.

direct flights to the Azores Islands
By Azores Airlines

The Azores are closer and easier to travel to than you may think. Direct flights from countries in Europe and many others with a short stop in Lisbon or Oporto cities. Also, direct flights are available from United States of America and Canada. Choose Ponta Delgada Aiport (PDL) as your final destination and prepare to be amazed with the island of São Miguel.

 That Dynamic Duo category is a killer idea! Signing up with a friend and then pestering each other to go faster for multiple days in a row seems pretty fun.

 Some of the most unique terrain and best hospitality I have every experienced in my life. Thanks to Andre, Nuno, Joao and the crew at Monbike. The Azores are a hidden gem. Looking forward to visiting again!
