Portugal: a mild winter

Winter in Portugal is a very pleasant season.

With an average of more than 300 sunny days a year, winter here can sometimes seem more like spring and you always need to have your sunglasses to hand.

A walk along the beach is a great idea at any time of year or alternatively, you could opt for our "ecovias", such as Vila Nova de Gaia, the Estrada Atlântica or the Rota Vicentina, where you can enjoy a view of the sea as you walk or cycle
When it comes to adrenaline-packed sports, surfing is always a good choice, especially since there are always good waves along Portugal's extensive coast.  But your prefer golf, Portugal offers exceptional conditions for golfing, especially in the courses of Algarve and on Estoril Coast, voted as the best golfing destinations in Europe and the world on a number of occasions.  

Whether it's the world heritage scenery of the River Douro, or in the Azores or Madeira, a river cruise is a great way to spend some leisure time.Take the opportunity to discover our monuments and museums or our historical city centres, some of which classified as world heritage. Take a look too at the contemporary buildings and marvel at the urban art in Lisbon that has created veritable open-air galleries.  

Eat a healthy lunch of fresh fish on a seaside esplanade, and sample our convent sweets too, such as the world-famous pastel de nata (custard tart). And your meal will taste even better with one of our excellent wines

Whatever you decide to do, you will take home many lifelong memories of your time here.
