A delightful country

Portugal has a fascinating mix of the old, rural culture and modern life. The Atlantic coast is beautiful, with wide sandy beaches, lush foliage and plenty of sunshine. The Portuguese are welcoming and hospitable. 

Our three-star hotel, Costa da Prata, is located on the seafront in the town of Figueira da Foz. The rooms are en-suite, with air conditioning. Our evening meals will be in the sister hotel, with the buildings located 300m apart.  


Plenty of time to enjoy the area

There will be plenty to see and do as our optional package of three excursions takes us to explore the villages, towns and other places of interest, including the attractive city of Coimbra. The beautiful, historic university buildings are well worth exploring. In the cafés, enjoy the special, milky coffee and Portuguese tarts. 

The beautiful walled town of Obidos

The preserved mediaeval town of Obidos is a remarkable location. Walking along the ramparts of the city walls, you will find beautiful views of the red-tiled roofs in the town and the surrounding farmlands on the other side. In the narrow cobbled streets, the shops are filled with interesting local crafts.


Explore the historic city of Porto

The second largest city in Portugal has been settled since Roman times. The narrow and steep lanes are listed World Heritage sites and they wind their way down to the medieval waterfront. There is much to see, from the interesting shops through the museums and galleries to the amazing bridges on the river. You can also choose to relax in one of the many cafés.

The lively town of Nazaré

Nazaré is a buzzing seaside town nestled at the foot of steep cliffs. It is split into two parts - down by the sea and up on the cliffs with stunning views. A funicular railway runs between the two. A stroll along the narrow streets takes you past cafés, restaurants, churches and shops crammed with inviting wares.

Enjoy surfing from the sandy beaches

This stretch of the Portuguese coast is known worldwide for its surfing and we are ideally located to try it on our free days, whether you have surfed before or not. The local surf school offers group lessons at a cost of 25 Euros per person including transport and equipment hire. 

Whether we have spent the day surfing, exploring the Portuguese towns or relaxing on the beach, each evening we enjoy a time of singing and an interesting Bible talk.

Independent Travel

You can select to travel independently during the booking process (NB we are unable to book one way flights or change the date of travel).

Click on 'View/Book' above to see the independent discount and the cost for the optional airport transfer.

The airport transfer is booked to coincide with the group flights. Please note that the driver would not be able to wait if you miss the transfer.

If you are travelling independently but someone else in your party will use the group flights, please make separate bookings.

If there are any changes to the holiday, we would not be able to cover the cost of changes to your independent flights. We would therefore recommend booking fully flexible tickets or joining the holiday using our flights.
