"Like Iceland, the Azores offer gorgeous no-filter landscapes, a palpable not-in-America vibe (you're in Portugal), and an ultra-convenient stopover locale on your way to Europe. Yet while their northern cousin is making the headlines for its record-breaking feats of tourism—numerous outlets have reported the country will have more American tourists than local residents by 2017—the Azores remain remarkably under the radar. ... While Iceland continues along a trajectory toward being a case study for rampant unchecked tourism, the Azores is hoping to find the sweet spot that boosts infrastructure without damaging both the tangible and intangible treasures that make the archipelago so unique."

Brendan Presser skriver i Bloomberg att Azorerna kan ta över Islands roll som tillfälligt stopp för resenärer på väg mellan Nordamerika och Europa.
