The weather in Lisbon
The capital Lisbon and the old rival Porto are perfect destinations for hiking, with wonderful views over the rivers. The appeal of these two cities is enhanced through their charming vintage trams that wind their way through cobble-paved streets past old cathedrals. Don't miss Lisbon's fado clubs, otherwise you will never understand the city's secret! If you're interested in the tram as a fabulous location, it can be booked exclusively for groups! Combining Lisbon with a fun drive in nostalgic Beetle cars to Cascais is an absolute must for all those who would like to indulge themselves in enjoying the essence of Portugal, the famous Pastéis de Belém, best with a chalice of Port wine. To burn off all those delicious calories, why not bike along the river on E-Bikes? With a bit of luck one of the many street artists might teach the participants how to paint their own postcard view!
The cradle of port wines as well as some prestigious wines, Douro is one of the most beautiful wine regions in the world. A lot revolves around port wine in Porto and so it is highly recommended to include a trip on the river Douro in traditional boats that were formerly used to transport barrels. The picturesque Douro valley can be reached with a nostalgic train depending on the season; the month of September is perfect for having the participants actively engage in grape-stomping to experience the wine-making process first-hand! Porto boasts a vibrant, historic city, Parisian flair as well as hip clubs.
The area of Algarve offers picture perfect Portuguese countryside and is best known for its white villages, long white sandy beaches, fantastic climate and a great selection of beautiful resort hotels.
The Portuguese islands are best known for their great variety with the stunning, sunshine island of Madeira, which offers spring temperatures all year around and spectacular scenes, exotic vegetation and charming old villages. The Azores are nature at its best with unique and amazing landscapes. They are considered a top destination for all types of boating activities, whale watching, hiking and a heaven for food lovers and eco-enthusiasts.
