Beautiful countryside, warm climate and a relaxed pace are some of the main reasons why tourists appreciate Portugal vacation packages. Lovely small towns and vineyards can be found throughout Portugal, with grape growers concentrated in the Porto area to the north, down through to Lisbon and continuing through to the Algarve coastline. In Lisbon, the country’s seductive capital, you will find a city with a charming history, endless sunshine, and quaint seaside villages. In Azores, you will come across a relatively quiet European destination that is only a 5-hour flight away from Toronto, with many historical sites, spas, and even whale watching. It’s also a great destination to explore by foot, by kayak, bike, or even horseback. For those craving the warmth in resort accommodations, there is no better place to explore than Algarve. While in the area, make sure to stand by the cape of St. Vincent, which was considered as the end of the world to ancient Europeans. To experience the magic of fairy tales, make sure to spend some time at Sintra, specifically at the palaces in Mafra or Queluz.
