Awesome Activities


If you are an extreme sports junkie, you should definitely try surfing in Portugal. Portugal is actually the place where the biggest wave was surfed. An avid surfer from a Hawaii rode a massive frothy beast here that towered 78 feet in the air off the coast of Nazare. Since then, surfers have flocked to Portugal in the hope of following in his wake. Or, if you want to try something a little different paragliding or zip riding could provide a thrilling Portuguese adventure. The gorgeous natural landscape also makes the country a brilliant place for calmer, gentler activities including horseback riding or hiking up stunning mountain peaks.


Europe’s Greatest Climate?


Regardless of when you’re travelling to Portugal, you’ll find that the climate is completely welcoming. If you’re heading over in the mid-winter, we’re delighted to say that the temperatures hardly ever drop under 5 degrees. Of course, it’s the summers that offer the best climate. While the sun scorches the sands of the coast, a light Atlantic wind always keeps the air cool. In the middle of summer, Portugal also gets the most hours of sun in Europe. In terms of the weather, somewhere between March and May is the ideal time to book a visit. The climate is warm while the crowds are low, making it the perfect destination for a relaxing retreat.
