When you think of Portugal, you think of cities on a human scale, breathtakingly beautiful coasts, and irresistibly delicious pastèis de nata.
Stroll through Alfama in Lisbon, explore the vineyards in the Douro Valley. Climb the cliffs in the Algarve or lose yourself in the beauty of green Madeira. Portugal is a country with a cuisine that is unmatched anywhere else, a country with cities where Baroque is palpable down to the cobblestones. A country with earthy and powerful wines and beautiful remnants of the many cultures that once docked there. Experience the soul of Portugal, come for the rugged coast, and return for everything you never want to miss again.
Portugal in winter is truly worth it. What's more, it's a genuine bucket list destination. With over 300 sunny days per year, the winter here feels like spring, and sunscreen is never an unnecessary luxury. Not only the presence of the sun adds value, but also the tranquility that reigns on the Iberian Peninsula is a strong point. Whether you're walking on the vast beaches of the Algarve, exploring ever-sunny Madeira, taking a city trip to Lisbon, or hiking in the Azores, the choice is yours. Whatever you decide to do, two things are certain: your winter vacation in Portugal will be delightful, and once you've been there, you'll definitely want to return.
