Glamping in Portugal: holiday destinations

Glamping in Portugal is an opportunity for travelers to explore one of the most underrated destinations in the world. While many flock to its neighboring Spain, Portugal has continued to rise in popularity thanks to some of the best beaches in the world and amazing destinations in Portugal such as Lisbon, Porto, Sintra, and the Algarve. Portugal is a paradise for seafood lovers, surfers, hiking enthusiasts, fashionistas, and of course lovers of the great outdoors. The country sits on the Atlantic coast of the Iberian Peninsula in Southwestern Europe and borders only Spain, with Viana do Castelo in the north and Faro in the south. Officially known as the Portuguese Republic (República Portuguesa), Portugal was once the powerhouse of Europe during the 16th Century. Nowadays, Portugal is a must-see for people all over the world. One of the best vacation spots in Europe is undoubtedly its capital, Lisbon. Go glamping near Lisbon and enjoy a European vacation for the books. You will be able to experience luxury camping near pristine beaches or stunning national parks such as Sintra-Cascais National Park, while being close enough to enjoy Lisbon sightseeing tours and much more.

Glampers can choose from a number of exciting destinations for luxury camping in Portugal. Go for adventures in the rocky northern coast in locations such as Santa Cruz do Douro for glamping near Porto. Oh and just like Lisbon, there’s an endless list of things to do in Porto to keep you satisfied during any family or romantic getaways in Portugal. Venture further north and you may choose to stay in a secluded and modern tree house in Ponte da Barca, in Viana do Castelo. For absolute seclusion and tranquility, explore Portugal’s mountainous terrain from an equally impressive tree house in Portalegre! From north to south, glampers will be able to find remote camping with many of the best places to visit in Portugal nearby.

Explore Portugal in the great outdoors

There’s a truly endless list of unique places to visit in Portugal. Fortunately for lovers of the great outdoors, the majority of them are rooted in nature. Portugal boasts many of the best beach destinations in Europe, especially for surfers in particular. Lisbon, which has arguably become the cultural capital of Europe, is only a short distance from a number of these spectacular beaches. Luxury camping holidays in Portugal are the perfect way to take advantage of them this year. Wake up with loved ones in your own private paradise, before setting off to explore beaches such as Cascais, hand-in-hand during romantic couples trips in Europe. Glampers can simply hop on a train from Lisbon which will take them along a beautiful stretch of Atlantic coastline, with beach after beach waiting to be explored. Some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe await along this coastline and include destinations such as Estoril, Carcavelos, Praia do Guincho, and Ericeira. Take full advantage of surfing, windsurfing, bodyboarding, and fishing that the coastline is famous for. Searching for where to play golf in Portugal? Estoril beach is one destination you can stop off at and enjoy high-quality golfing for hours if surfing and other water sports aren’t as appealing. More of the best places to play golf can be found in Albufeira and the Algarve.

If the best beach destinations in Europe weren’t enough, Portugal is also home to a string of scenic hiking trails in Madeira’s levadas which can even lead hikers up to peaks above the clouds, like Pico Ruivo and Pico de Arieiro. Glampers can even zip-line from Spain’s Sanlúcar de Guadiana across the Guadiana River and into Alcoutim in Portugal! This 720 meter-long adrenaline rush will be unforgettable for all who try it. For more special memories, try skydiving in the Alentejo, canyoning on the wild Azores, and even skiing in the Serra de Estrela!

The best things to see in Portugal: attractions

For keen hikers and outdoor enthusiasts in particular, the mountain peaks in Madeira are among the most unique places to visit in Portugal where breathtaking views will stay with you for a lifetime. The same can be said for Azores; this collection of islands sometimes goes under the radar when it comes to the best Portugal attractions. However, make the trip and you will be able to enjoy whale watching tours on the Atlantic Ocean, swimming in the geothermal pools, festivals, and hikes up Pico Mountain. For glampers keen to have a taste of Portuguese culture and history, Porto, Lisbon, Coimbra, Braga, and Évora are just a handful of the top places to go in Portugal this year. For example, Porto and Lisbon’s buildings are awash with mesmerizing colors and designs where so many artists have left their mark on the city. The architecture is also something to behold and must-see destinations in Lisbon including Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, Torre de Belém, and Castelo de São Jorge will not disappoint. Only a short train journey away, the town of Sintra is home to the magnificent Palacio Nacional de Pena which is one of the finest attractions in Portugal and the perfect destination for romantic day trips in Portugal. Porto attractions are also in abundance here: Torre de Clérigos and Palácio da Bolsa stand out as must-see destinations in Portugal in particular. Head to the impressive religious sanctuary of Bom Jesus do Monte in Braga or the Universidade de Coimbra, a World Heritage Site!

Best time to visit Portugal for glamping trips

Spring in Portugal is generally considered to be the best time to enjoy this charming country, perfect for luxury camping in Europe. Attractions in Portugal are also best enjoyed in the sunshine, therefore the months from March through until late August are most likely to keep glampers happy during their romantic getaways and family holidays in Portugal. For quieter glamping vacations in Portugal, aim to visit between September and October when the weather is still glorious without the crowds. Enjoy the Castelo de Guimarães and other top attractions in Portugal without too many people potentially tainting your experience while glamping in Portugal this year!
