Portugal is a friendly, safe country, with a mild climate and an excellent cuisine, ideal to tour with the family.

There are numerous activities designed for the little ones, both outdoors and indoors, in castles, museums, zoos, theme parks and aqua parks. Following the footprints of dinosaurs, watching dolphins and whales at sea or learning about the stars are just some ideas of what you can do.

Bicycle or donkey rides in natural parks and reserves are also much appreciated and a relaxed way to learn about and discover nature.

On the fine sandy beaches, with their calm waters and pleasant temperatures, children can run and play at will, swim and make sandcastles. But the greatest fun of all is to take advantage of the waves and introduce the whole family to surfing.
