Group Solo Travel in Portugal

Travel solo as part of a luxury group tour to Portugal

Why travel solo to Portugal?

A solo trip to Portugal immerses you in a culture that owes much of its character to the sea – this being the final frontier between Europe and the mighty, irrepressible Atlantic.

From Porto to the Algarve, Portugal’s coastline, lays on seascapes and surfing spots that you won’t want to miss. Here, even the melancholy tones of fado music seem to take on a nautical note.

Wander through the streets of Lisbon to admire its faded beauty and fall in love with its azulejo-tiled buildings and Manueline (Gothic) churches. Further north in Porto, you’ll find the medieval streets of Ribeira, brimming with wine bars and lively plazas.

Then, there are Portugal’s wild landscapes. Tackle Sintra’s mountain trails in a 4×4 Jeep and you’ll encounter whimsical palaces and extravagant villas hidden amongst its majestic pine forest. The dramatic Douro Valley is threaded with vineyards, producing some of the world’s most famous wines. But we think you’ll love the surfing, too…… After all, everything flows back to the sea here.

TOP PLACES TO VISIT IN PORTUGAL

LISBON

Lisbon is a city of hilltop views, cobblestone streets and beautiful architecture. Oh, and let’s not forget the nightlife, centered around its hive of rooftop bars and cool co-working spaces. A must for any solo traveler.

PORTO

Gothic churches, age-old port lodges and azulejo-tiled buildings await in Porto, all accessible via the city’s traditional tram network. A hillside location makes for great views, too, over the rooftops and the Douro River.

DOURO VALLEY

The world has woken up to the appeal of the Douro Valley region and it’s now a must for any wine-lover. Here, some of the oldest vineyards in the world produce unique port wines against a backdrop of rolling hills and winding valleys.

SINTRA

This Unesco World Heritage Site and fairytale town is one of Portugal’s most-visited destinations – with good reason. Colorful houses, winding streets and the hilltop Palacio Nacional da Pena castle are just some of its storybook attractions.
