Alternatively, take a day trip to the popular Sintra region and enjoy beaches, forests and World Heritage sites. In Portugal’s medieval capital, Coimbra, set on the banks of the Rio Mondego, you can explore Portuguese history at its best, and join its student population (Coimbra boasts one of Portugal’s, if not Europe’s, most prestigious Universities) making the most of its sparkling riverfront developments. Or, head to Évora and explore medieval cathedrals and Roman baths.
In Portugal’s incredible natural landscapes you could sip fantastic wines in the vineyards of the Douro Valley and the ancient Alto Douro wine region, or go on hiking, kayaking and biking adventures of a lifetime. Starting in the Parque Nacional da Peneda-Gerês, Portugal’s only National Park, you could explore oak and pine forests, hike mountains and visit ancient villages. Head to Parque Natural da Serra da Estrela, Portugal’s largest protected area, and enjoy its stunning meadows, uplands and rivers, as well as Portugal’s highest peak, Torre. The Rio Guadiana, a huge international river spanning the Portuguese and Spanish borders, is a great spot for kayaking, whilst in the Beiras region you can explore more of Portugal’s breath-taking mountains and ancient villages. Or if it’s a beach holiday you are after in Portugal, look no further than the ever-popular Algarve region in the south.
