Getting to Portugal

The main airports of Portugal are in Lisbon, Faro and Porto all 3 have a range of airlines that fly directly between many destinations including many budget airlines.

The Capital

Lisbon is the capital of Portugal, it has a booming tourism industry and busy infra structure, its airport is 6km North of the center and gives easy access to the province of Lisbon, Leiria and Upper Alentejo, each area has its own character and advantage, which one you choose has much to do with your demands on the event and the distance that you are willing to travel.
The Lisbon / Leiria / Upper Alentejo areas are the most diverse and fast changing when it comes to landscape and possibilities, even though the areas have not developed even remotely as fast as the city of Lisbon, new hotels are opening their doors, accessibility has increased dramatically and many places have started to cater for a different type of tourism, be it wine, gastronomy related to golf and sports, ecological or historical awareness. Leiria is the province of the largest diversity with its many beaches, mountains, flat lands and Unesco heritage sites giving the opportunity to choose from many varying surroundings and atmospheres for your meeting.

Lisbon district has many wine related opportunities, cross country cart and jeep challenges, golf and riviera type surroundings, whereas Alentejo is the district for a typical Portugal full of olive groves, bulls and horses, balloon flights, hiking and rural possibilities it makes for an intimate local experience or a cultural city experience.

Places to look into

Cascais, Sintra and the Cascais Sintra natural park – 30 KM from Lisbon, this area is not remote and counts as the most expensive of Lisbon district, it is mostly known as the Riviera of Portugal, close to the capital and laden with busy beaches and more remote mountainous landscapes.

Slightly more North of Lisbon you will find the mountainous regions of Alenquer and the flatter lands of Santarem, these areas typify themselves farming, wines, bulls, fishing. Alenquer provides forests, remote villages, golf, river streams and dense vegetation. Santarem consist of mainly flat land agriculture speckled with hills that are home to old monumental cities, most overlooking the wonderful Tagus river and most home at the top to an old castle or city wall.

Porta do Sol, Santarém

If you are looking for a more rural teem meeting event, Alentejo might be the place of choice slightly further from Lisbon, it is still easily accessible. It is home to the cork trees, olives groves and wine making quintas of a large part of Portugal and activities are very often based on the rural aspects of this area, grape picking, bread making, olive pressings are amongst the most popular.

The surroundings of Porto

Porto is in the North of Portugal surrounded by wild beaches and the terraced landscapes of the Douro river. Its surrounding are wetter during the winter and more rugged than the Lisbon landscapes but its immense beauty has made it UNESCO world heritage. The flights to Porto are generally the cheapest and other things tend to be cheaper here also, although you could just as easily choose to stay in some of the most expensive and sublime of Portugal’s 5 star offer! Due to its higher lands the surrounding of Porto provides many opportunities for adventure travel with activities around climbing, canyoning, Kayaking and rafting, it is one of the areas most suited to real die hard adventurer, however being the home of the most famous wines of Portugal, the Port wines and Douro wines, it is equally great for those who seek culture and beauty.
Most of its tourism takes place on the Douro river, where cruises of all sorts take you through its amazing internal landscapes.

The southern Algarve

Faro is the capital of the Algarve wildly surrounded by beaches and resorts, in the summer months it is the heart of Portuguese tourism, in the winter months it tends to be deserted and empty in most areas. Off-site events and meetings are best planned out of the high season in this area but with the scores of hotels and resorts to choose from, the Algarve could very well be your choice for your next event.
