event-feature

Portugal é hoje uma referencia para o sector privado de viagens de turismo e eventos para grupos, constatamos também que o sector empresarial e organização de eventos empresarias, tipo, team building entre outros, começam também a dinamizar cada vez mais o sector de turismo em Portugal, em ambos os casos, constatamos que tanto o sector privado como o empresarial estão a crescer a um ritmo acelerado. Em ambos os casos verifica-se um crescimento acentuado. Por esse motivo decidimos explicar certos aspectos relativos à organização e planeamento de eventos para grupos privados bem como para o sector empresarial, que pode ser muito importante para quando pensar em planear e organizar este tipo de eventos para grupos e empresas, viagens grupos e eventos empresas em Portugal, dicas.

Porquê organizar o seu evento em Portugal?

O que é que faz de Portugal o local único e  adequado à organização para pequenos, médio e grandes eventos?

Para começar, o nosso clima! Portugal tem um clima ameno e Mediterrânico com a média de 6 horas de luz solar por dia. Os invernos são ligeiros e molhados enquanto que os verões são na maioria quentes, no entanto, arrefecidos por brisas marítimas. Os invernos são relativamente curtos enquanto que os verões ligeiramente mais longos.

Acessibilidades Portugal tem 3 aeroportos espalhados estrategicamente pelo território continental. No norte, Porto é o ponto de entrada principal, no centro do país, em Lisboa, a capital portuguesa dispõe do aeroporto principal e no sul o aeroporto do Algarve em Faro, capital do Algarve também tem um aeroporto principal. (*note os arquipélagos da Madeira e dos Açores também dispõem de aeroportos e fazem parte do território português, (acerca destes aeroportos explicaremos em breve num outro artigo que iremos publicar para o efeito). Desde 2015 que todos os aeroportos principais portugueses oferecem tanto a possibilidade de voar/viajar com as tradicionais transportadoras aéreas seja em classe de negócios ou em 1ª classe, e agora também pode escolher voar/viajar com uma transportadora low cost tipo Portugália, Transavia, Rainair, German Wings, entre outras transportadoras aéreas….
Quanto às estradas estão estruturadas através do plano 2000, rede nacional e rede de auto-estradas e em 2014 e 2015 foram consideradas as melhores auto estradas da Europa e as segundas melhores no Mundo de acordo com o Forum Económico no seu relatório anual Competitividade Global para os anos referidos, 2014 e 2015.
A partir das principais cidades, a rede de transportes públicos, oferece mobilidade por todo o país, embora com melhor cobertura na costa litoral e nas maiores cidades do interior.
Muitas são já as pessoas que visitam Portugal através de Barcos de Cruzeiro, sendo esta uma forma de turismo que está a crescer também a um ritmo acelerado, principalmente na Capital Lisboa e que tem atualmente em construção mais um terminal para paquetes de Cruzeiro, mesmo no coração da cidade.

Custo Portugal é um dos destinos turísticos Europeus para onde viajar de férias ou eventos. Os preços para alojamento, restaurantes e atividades de lazer encontram-se bem abaixo da média Europeia e os serviços oferecidos são de qualidade superior.

Herança Cultural, Paisagens, Monumentos, Atividades de Lazer, Desportos, Gastronomia e Vinhos, Portugal dispõe de uma oferta muito diversificada a qual é muito apelativa para grandes grupos de turisitas consumidores e com gostos e preferencias diferentes, econômicas e diferentes expectativas.

Portugal e o turismo de nichos

Viagens grupos e eventos empresas em Portugal, dicas.

Turismo de aventura e viajantes ativos devido clima temperado e ameno, diversidade paisagística e uma costa marítima extensa e longa, Portugal é particularmente adequado e ideal pra viajantes em busca de turismo ativo e aventureiro e dispõe de muitos  operadores turísticos especializados e devidamente credenciados os quais oferecem uma variedade grande de serviços da melhor qualidade possível, desde desportos variados em ambientes seguros. Desde o Parapente a Surf, Canyoning, Montanhismo e Rapel, passeios de bicicleta variados, Montar a cavalo, atividades de barco, JetSki, Motonáutica, FlyBoard, Mergulho, Queda Livre e Paraquedismo, quase tudo o que possa imaginar é possível fazer em Portugal.

O Eno-Turismo O sector do vinho em Portugal está também a crescer a olhos vivos e a receber distinções e prêmios Mundias de reconhecimento um pouco por toda a parte e em muitas ocasiões. Tudo isto devido aos vinhos excepcionais produzidos em Portugal.
Esta industria em expansão criou um nicho de mercado novo para os viajantes. Muitas são as Quintas com Casas Senhoriais que foram convertidas para alojar turistas e a grande maioria também oferece atividades de lazer variadas.  Originalmente Portugal é o lar da primeira vinha Ibérica e até aos dias de hoje continua a produzir vinhos baseados em processos únicos e é o país da única variedade de uvas Ibéricas e Europeias, a uva Ramisco. Todas as outras variedades de vinhas nomeadamente as castas francesas da Vitis Vinifra e entre varias outras e embora tivessem sido levadas para as Américas durante os descobrimentos e colonizações, todas as castas europeias foram destruídas com a praga da filoxera, sendo a única sobrevivente a casta portuguesa Ramisco!

Turismo Rural Portugal tal como a maioria dos países Europeus do Sul, partilham um problema comum, os grandes centros urbanos e o abandono das áreas rurais. Muitas Vilas e Aldeias tem sido abandonadas ou estão quase desérticas, as terras já não são lavradas como noutros tempos e as que o são, na grande maioria é através de processos mecanizados, o que contribuiu para que o recurso à mão de obra tradicional se tornou num recurso humano quase desnecessário. Estas circunstancias acabaram por criar novas expectativas e um novo tipo de nicho de mercado turístico, mais conhecido entre nós, como Turismo Rural. Por outro lado, os governantes em Portugal investiram de forma significativa e com um olhar num futuro sustentável.
Esta estratégia permitiu que surgissem novos destinos e saídas de retiro fantásticas ao longo da costa marítima e no interior das regiões centro e norte de Portugal.

A nossa herança Cultural e o turismo possuidor de uma história incrivelmente rica, Portugal tem sido reconhecido com um elevado número de vislumbrantes locais e impressionantes monumentos por parte da Unesco, enquanto Bens Material da Humanidade. Em Portugal são anualmente organizados muitos festivais e Eventos Mundialmente famosos, mas também muitos eventos locais, regionais menos conhecidos, desde a gastronomia, musica, tradições rurais, eventos trendy modernos e sobre vinhos.

Turismo Luxuoso Nos últimos anos assistiu-se ao aparecimento de muitos hotéis de luxo, tanto de 4* como 5* e complexos turísticos(resorts).
Em 2015, este trend foi coroado com o Hotel 6 Senses, um hotel luxuoso de uma cadeia hoteleira Asiática, que abriram a sua primeira unidade hoteleira na Europa, mais precisamente no Vale do Douro.
Mesmo antes de abrirem as portas ao publico, já esta nova unidade hoteleira estava completamente esgotada para os primeiros 4 meses desde a sua inauguração e abertura ao grande publico.

O mercado de Bem Estar (Welness) e o Eco-Turismo Com as suas águas límpidas e cristalinas, muitas reservas naturais e saudáveis (ar pouco poluído), nature, termas naturais e fontes, Portugal é neste aspecto perfeito para férias relacionadas com a saúde e todo o turismo relacionado com o bem estar e a saúde. As muitas possibilidades são variadas e existem quase para qualquer carteira e preço para receber e acomodar este tipo de turista/visitante.
Eco-turismo e consciencialização das massas está a tornar-se cada vez mais comum em Portugal, país este que já lidera as energias sustentáveis à escala Mundial, e a consciencialização para o turismo ecológico também já chegou ao mercado de turismo de luxo, criando novas formas de sustentabilidade que pode inspirar o resto do Mundo.

O passado e a história do turismo em Portugal

Portugal desde há muito tempo que tem sido o destino favorito de muitos viajantes de todos os quadrantes do Planeta e em grande parte devido ao passado dos descobrimentos pelos 5 cantos do Mundo. Portugal cresceu em anos recentes o mercado de turismo de forma exponencial, crescimento esse que também se deve à intervenção e contributo ativo do governo através da sua agencia para o turismo Turismo de Portugal a qual atingiu com grande sucesso, a maioria dos objetivos a que se propôs, conquistar a adversidade financeira que tem afetado a União Europeia e os marcados de turismo nos últimos anos.

Viagens grupos e eventos empresas em Portugal, dicas.

Portugal tem vindo a ganhar muitos prêmios e reconhecimentos, enquanto o melhor destino turístico na Europa e foi escolhido por viajantes e turistas durante vários períodos entre 2013, 2014, e 2015 como o destino turístico numero 1.

Os Mercados de Eventos para empresas e grupos de viajantes, tem seguindo o mesmo trend que os mercado privado e a maioria dos operadores turísticos tem hoje capacidade para acolher eventos cada vez maiores e eventos customizados e à medida.  Portugal está na moda é escolhido na qualidade de anfitrião para receber venues, conferencias, entre outros tipos de eventos de grande dimensão.

Antes de tomar a decisão de fazer alguma atividade tipo de evento para 1 grupo, algumas questões a levar em consideração!

Sempre que se tratar de grupos de viajantes e dependendo do numero de participantes e do tipo de evento,
Necessário para eventos públicos é preciso licença especifica a qual deve ser pedida com a devida antecedência

Algumas das empresas de menor dimensão facultam atividades de lazer, mas tem pouca capacidade.  sempre que os grupos atinjam um elevado numero de participantes, convêm planear múltiplas atividades
Distancias e acessibilidades aos melhores retiros. Viajar para retiros rurais, pode ser cansativo e perca de tempo, se as ligações não forem eficientes. Convém sempre informar-se devidamente, 40 kms numa estrada má, pode levar até 3 vezes mais para chegar ao destino, do que se tivesse de percorrer a mesma distancia em estrada boa.

Tipos de eventos.

 Portugal dispõe de vários mercados de turismo de nicho. pode receber e executar todo gênero de vénue,  à medida e para todos os gostos.

Eventos Offsite ou escapadelas por 1 dia /Eventos de fim de semana também conhecidos como offsite retreats são perfeitos em Portugal pela existência de tantos locais retirados, casas Senhoriais e Quintas, Wine hotéis, aldeias totalmente reabilitadas para o turismo e oferecem espaços luxuosos ou até mesmo complexos (resorts) de luxo. Na maioria, estes hotéis e complexos turísticos situam-se próximo dos 3 principais aeroportos em Portugal ou escondidas nas suas lindas paisagens., As possibilidades são muitas em Portugal.

Eventos de Team Building(fortalecer laços de equipa), para Grupos e Empresas. Que melhor forma de potenciar e estimular uma equipe do que um evento em conjunto? Desafiados pela Natureza, ultrapassar obstáculos e trabalho em conjunto de forma a fortalecer o relacionamento em grupo antes de regressarem a um bom duche de chuveiro e uma boa refeição, trocar impressões sobre os eventos do dia numa atmosfera amigável e relaxante?

Lisbon beaches An introduction to the best beaches and how to get there!

Lisbon beaches

Lisbon beaches a quick guide on which, where and how to get there Oeiras, Parede, Carcavelos, Estoril, Cascais and Guincho
Lisbon is a wonderful fast growing, energetic and lively city. It is quickly becoming one of the most popular cities in Europe to visit for short or longer breaks the entire year round. It has a mild climate out of season and a hot climate during the long summer months, it’s coldest months are January and February but even these months though wet and sometimes cold have many sunny warm days where temperatures can reach as high as 20 degrees in the afternoon.

One of the many things that are making it more and more popular are the many great beaches close to the city, easily reached by public transport or car and all with their own history, background and type of tourism this article tries to describe the beaches in a nutshell explaining their unique character so you can explore them more easily!

Lisbon is build on the Tagus river which due to pollution, dangerous streams and the modern busy river traffic is not a place where people are likely to swim but it does make for fantastic views, amazing boat trips and water side terraces right in the centre of Lisbon.

Going a short way out of Lisbon in the west coast direction will provide you with much opportunity of finding great beaches popular among locals and easily reached by car or public transport.

The first beach you will see by train or car in the direction of Cascais is the Paço de Arcos beach and even though this is still on the tagus river you will see the locals swimming there on hot days, people fishing and people searching for clamps as we haven’t explored much of this beach the first one we can suggest is the Oeiras beach 5 minutes from the Paço de Arcos.

Oeiras beach is specifically popular amongst families and people on a day break or after work and the town of Oeiras

OeirasThe first sea beach out of Lisbon is in Oeiras which is where the tagus meets the ocean on the coast of Estoril. Oeiras is 15 minutes by train from the Lisbon central Cais do Sodre train station and due to it’s closeness to Lisbon is generally one of the busiest beaches amongst Lisbon locals. The sea here is relatively still, the beach quite reasonably sized and has many bars and places to snack. It’s specifically popular amongst families and people on a day break or after work and the town of Oeiras is within walking distance.
The town feels more like a suburb of Lisbon than a town by itself which is what it is but some of the old town is really lovely and has a historical feel to it.

The next beaches on this line are around Parede not very popular amongst tourists as they are mostly stony beaches with small sandy stretches, some difficult to reach and overfull on hot days. But you can be lucky to find an empty hidden place on the rocks where you’ll likely encounter a couple of clamp searching locals while hanging your feet in the water.
After Parede it’s a short distance to Carcavelos

Carcavelos beach is an energetic beach full of activities from kite surfing to board surfing and paragliding making it very popular with young people and active older people!

The largest beach is the beach of Carcavelos, the next stop on our Cascais line route.
Carcavelos beach is very popular, very accessible, has a very large parking area and is within walking distance of the Carcavelos train station roughly half an hour from Cais do Sodre.
Carcavelos beach is an energetic beach full of activities from kite surfing to board surfing and paragliding making it as popular with the more ‘active’ people as it is with families. It has a good selection of bars and restaurants, surf schools and companies that provide water, air and land activities.
Carcavelos was a small fishing town in our modern times surrounded by new built flats and con-dominions but some of it’s old charm has remained in the centre.

Estoril famous for it’s beach, it’s luxury and most of all for it’s Casino

EstorilAfter Carcavelos the Famous town of Estoril famous for it’s beach, it’s luxury and most of all for it’s Casino, it’s also the town which named the stretch of water on which shores it is build, the Estoril shore.

Estoril beach is within minutes walk of the train station and minutes from many restaurants, bars and yes the casino. It’s a much more expensive area than the Carcavelos area but has a certain charm that attracts many visitors each year.
One of the reasons for Estoril success could be it’s protected bay as it is set behind the stretch of shoreline that houses Cascais and reaches into the bay on the inside and along the west coast on the outside.


estoril-station
From Estoril you can walk on the Boulevard build along the shore straight to Cascais. Estoril and Cascais are as close as you will get to the French Riviera feel in Portugal and in the last years it has gotten to be very popular amongst tourist. Beautiful and speckled with small and larger beaches, restaurants and during the summer months incredible vacation activity. The Boulevard is home to many bars and restaurants and close by hotels and has a wonderful sea view and many areas to swim.
If you want a quiet get away to Cascais than the busy summer months are probably not the best time to travel!

Cascais inherited it’s current status in the late 19th century when King Luís I decided to turn the citadel of Cascais into his summer residence so that the entire Portuguese royal family could enjoy the sea and spent their summer vacation there.

CascaisCascais was once just a small fishing village on the out most point of the bay of the Tagus it has roots that go back to Paleolithic as remains have been found in some of the caves close to Cascais and was occupied by the Romans and Moors in later years. Cascais inherited it’s current status in the late 19th century when King Luís I decided to turn the citadel of Cascais into his summer residence so that the whole Portuguese royal family could enjoy the sea and spent their summer vacation there. As a result Cascais enjoyed many privileges and became a popular residence among the nobels. Cascais was the first in the country to enjoy electricity in 1878 and gained a railway in 1889. Many mansions where built that still remain to this day. Cascais though popular still keeps an air of sophistication and has many hotels and guest houses, some of the better restaurants, many small sandy beaches and is close to the famous west coast beach Guincho, which is wild and beautiful and much loved under surfers.
The train from Cais do Sodre to Cascais takes roughly 30 minutes direct and 40 with stops.
