Itinerary details


3 nightsCASCAIS

Touching down in Lisbon, you’ll be transferred to the coastal town of Cascais, the first stop on your active family adventure. Long a popular resort with holidaymakers from Lisbon and beyond, Cascais is a favoured summer retreat of Portuguese royalty, famous for its beautiful beaches – which are perfect for surfing and lazing on the sand alike.

You’ll learn to ride the waves yourselves (or, if you already can, take your level up a notch) with a private surf lesson, and take to the ocean again to enjoy a dolphin-spotting tour in a RIB – if you’re lucky, you’ll also spot blue sharks, hammerhead sharks, sunfish and turtles. Back on dry land, rock climbing will see you scaling cliff faces across Cascais and Sintra. All these activities are expertly organised by your hotel, Martinhal Lisbon Cascais – a five-star resort where a wealth of other activities are also on offer.

4 nightsSAGRES

The second half of your family adventure sees you transferred to the southern tip of Portugal and the rugged region of Sagres. Where Cascais is all golden beaches and glitzy boutiques, Sagres is altogether more wild and remote, with the ocean rising dramatically against towering rocky cliffs. That’s not to say your time here will be any less luxurious, of course – Martinhal Sagres, the sister property of your first hotel, offers the same blend of supreme luxury and exciting adventure activities.

You’ll acquaint yourselves with the coastal landscapes in the most unforgettable way possible, as you soar above them in a hot air balloon; you’ll then take to the waves themselves on kayaking and snorkelling trips. Horseback rides, meanwhile, will see you exploring the region’s huge beaches in style. As in Cascais, these activities are included in your stay, but there is a huge programme of alternatives to choose from as well – explore the Atlantic Coast on a catamaran cruise, try yoga, or explore Sagres the old-fashioned way on a guided hiking tour.

After four nights of outdoor adventures in Sagres, your family adventure comes to an end, and you’ll fly home from Faro.
