Portugal Uncovered

Dive deep into Portugal’s unique culture and beauty on this awesome trip through its best bits. Explore the sights, sounds, and tastes of the most exciting cities from bohemian Lisbon to the fading grandeur of Porto, and see the most stunning historical sites, from magical Sintra and medieval Evora to the holy shrine of Fatima. There’s no shortage of beach time either with a couple of days on the Algarve’s sun-soaked sands, and a stay in a mellow surf hotel, right next to the beach in Peniche. With delicious seafood, beach yoga, street art, and big surf to boot, this is living.
•    Lisbon. Fly into lovely Lisbon and make your way to the accommodation. Wander along the marina, check out the beaches, or join a resident-guided street art tour. Our next stop is the fairy-tale town of Sintra. Explore its glittering palaces and UNESCO-protected ruins, before journeying to Lisbon for a final farewell feast.
•    Porto (via Fatima and Coimbra). Head to the charming city of Porto, with stops en route at Fatima, one of Catholicism’s major shrines, and the lively university town of Coimbra. Arrive in Porto and explore the highlights of the city on foot, or by e-bike. This evening’s all about some tasty eats and sampling some port – when in Rome! Explore Porto at your own pace. Take a stroll along the Douro, and check out the views from some of the lofty miradouros. This evening, how about an authentic dining experience in a local home?
•    Peniche (via Aveiro and Obidos).  Visit Aveiro. Explore ‘Portugal’s Venice’ on a boat tour of its canals, before continuing to the whitewashed town of Obidos. Join one of the surf classes or if you’d rather just soak up the sun, then grab a spot by the pool or on the beach – nobody’s judging.
•    The Algarve (via Evora). Head to Lagos via the medieval town of Evora. Check out its grand cathedrals, Roman baths, and gorgeous town square before continuing towards Lagos. Explore the banks of the Rio Bensafrim, hit the beach, or just grab a glass of something cold and relax. You can enjoy the beautiful Algarve. Top up your tan on one of the golden beaches, practice your surf skills, or hike along the coastline. There are tons of watersports on offer, and if you’re a golf fan, take your pick from some stellar courses.
