General Information about Portugal Vacation Packages:
Portugal vacation packages offer tourists of all ages the opportunity to discover Portugal in comfort. Beautiful countryside, warm climate and a relaxed pace are some of the main reasons why tourists have come to 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. There are many seniors who enjoy long stays over the winter in Algarve – a kind of Florida 'snow bird' arrangement for Europe that attracts a 40+ crowd and few younger travellers. Portugal vacation packages to the Azores are a popular alternate choice to explore the Portuguese experience, and golf enthusiasts will appreciate the golf packages that are offered for this region. This relatively quiet European destination is only 5 hours flight from Toronto, and features many historical sites, spas, and even whale watching aboard zodiac boats for the more adventurous. As another point of interest, much of the Azores derives the bulk of its electrical power through geothermal power generation, followed by wind power, and rounded out by diesel – very environmentally friendly and progressive. The wind power generators are never short of a breeze in Portugal's subtropical climate, and the breezes also help to make the warm summer months more comfortable for Portugal package holiday tourists and locals alike.
Although it can be cooler in February, Portugal features virtually 365 days of sunshine – great conditions to enjoy a Portugal vacation package. The ideal time to enjoy a Portugal package holiday is from April through October when the climate is most agreeable. Although Portugal vacation packages have declined somewhat in popularity in recent years due to tourism competition from Greece, Spain and Italy, many Canadians of Portuguese descent choose to visit family for extended stays over the charter season, in addition to many other tourists seeking to explore the beauty of Portugal. For the first-time tourist to Portugal, an escorted tour is highly recommended in order to see as much of the country as possible. English is commonly spoken by locals in most tourist areas, making it easier for English-speaking tourists to communicate throughout their stay in Portugal.
Although Portugal package holidays are not recommended for beach lovers, the country does feature some unique volcanic sand beaches that are enjoyed by locals and tourists. Due to the rich volcanic soil, Portugal is a great place for agriculture as noted by its many vineyards and lush vegetation.
Portugal vacation packages may be slightly less popular than some other European package holiday destinations, but Portugal offers a great European travel alternative with a nice, quiet pace. Portugal vacations feature wonderful hotels, as well as the beautiful islands of the Azores, each with a unique personality.
