Experience seaside fun, tasty food, arty outings and river trips in a luxury family vacation to Portugal.

Whether you have a sweet tooth to satisfy, are looking for the rush that goes with outdoor fun, or you simply want to spend time together making memories in a new place, then Portugal is the perfect destination for your family holiday.

Algarve is ideal for families enchanted by the ocean. Spot dolphins playing in the waves, as well as a variety of other marine creatures and see how many turtles and orcas you can spot. Make the most of the rugged coastline and its fantastic surf spots by signing up for a lesson or two before hitting the waves. It doesn’t matter if it’s your first time on a board, or if you’re a seasoned professional – you’re in for a great time.

Head out into the winelands where the adults can enjoy some of Portugal’s top wines, and the whole family can settle down for a picnic. A visit to Quinta de Sant’Ana, a small family-run winery, even offers you the chance to try your hand at tile painting, inspired by some of the beautiful works you’ll discover around the country.

And of course, an important part of any visit to Portugal is indulging in, and learning about, its cuisine. Whether you want to simply find a table at a variety of restaurants or cafes in the cities or out in the countryside, or you’re keen to roll up your sleeves and learn how to create some traditional favourites yourself – your taste buds will be tingling right the way through. Just imagine the feasts you’ll treat your family and friends to when you get home.

There are also plenty of opportunities for you and your family to get active. Take a bike ride through Porto and discover some of the city’s more beautiful gardens and urban parks, then head out onto the river and admire Porto’s old town as it slips past. Lisbon is an endlessly fascinating city and here you can wander between museums and old buildings on expertly led tours that are tailored to suit your family’s interests.

Your dedicated Travel Designer is ready to get to know your family and plan the perfect trip for you – from the youngest adventurer to the most seasoned traveller.

Portugal has a great friendly family vibe. A trip to Portugal can be really diverse, from exploring the golden sandy beaches in the Algarve where you can learn to surf (great for big kids too), to riding the rickety trams in Lisbon, listening to the soft fado music that flows through the winding streets. Let’s not forget the food, either. Portuguese food is designed for sharing from fresh sardines straight off the boat to a plate of dreamy custard tarts. It is the best kind of food for families.
