Christmas in Portugal is celebrated on the 24th and 25th December. Presents are opened at midnight on the 24th and families traditionally feast on bacalhau (dried cod), turkey or octopus. While the 25th is a public holiday many hotels and some restaurants will be open to serve Christmas dinners to visitors and will offer a choice of a Portuguese style dinner or roast turkey with all the trimmings. If you are here in the run up to Christmas look out for the special street markets that spring up with crafts and other gift ideas and festive fair including hot, roast chestnuts.

New Year's Eve in Portugal

As in many countries, New Year's Eve is a great excuse to party in Portugal! Most towns will have firework displays and it is traditional to see in the New Year with raisins and champagne so wrap up warm and enjoy the celebrations!

This year we have New Year's Eve cruises in Lisbon, Porto and Madeira: a fantastic way to see in the New Year in style and enjoy fabulous views of the fireworks. In Lisbon you can choose between a romantic cruise for a maximum of 8 people on a classic, restored sailing boat or a lavish dinner cruise with live entertainment on an imposing 4 deck ship with viewing deck, piano bar, lounge and restaurant! The New Year's Eve cruises in Porto include a dinner cruise with live entertainment and 2 or 3 day cruises up the River Douro on beautiful hotel ships. Finally the island of Madeira is famous for having one of the world's best fireworks displays and you can get the best views out at sea on our special New Year's Eve cruise. Places on the cruises are strictly limited so please don't hesitate to contact us for information or to reserve your place and ensure a memorable New Year in Portugal!

If you have overindulged at Christmas or New Year don't forget many of our activities will still be running during the festive season so a downhill bike ride, an exhilarating cruise or a scuba diving or watersports lesson could be just what you need to feel refreshed! runners should also keep an eye out for the Sao Silvestre races in Lisbon and other cities on 28th December.

For those of you who's like to kick start your health and fitness regime and escape to sunnier skies we will also be running boot camps in Portugal in the spring!
