"Success arises from wanting, from determination and resilience to accomplish a goal. Even when you don't reach that goal, if you seek and overcome challenges that face you, you will at least accomplish remarkable things."
- José Saramago (Portuguese writer and 1998 winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature)

Portugal is one of the oldest countries in the world, it has the oldest borders in Europe, with an exceptional range of typography. Even a short distance away, you can find a great diversity of fauna and flora, the perfect scenario for outdoor leisure activities – as well as a unique cultural heritage, where the old and new blend together in harmony.

The Portuguese cuisine is superb, rich both in flavor and variety. You will also find fine wines to enjoy with your meals. Hospitable and friendly people and a mild climate with around 300 days of sunshine per year make Portugal the perfect holiday destination. Situated in the south-west of Europe, its privileged location allows you to enjoy 850 kilometres of coast line, with stunning beaches bathed by the Atlantic Ocean. There is a Portuguese saying that describes Portugal as “The Paradise planted by the Ocean” and that is easy to see as the ocean plays an important part in the lives of the Portuguese.

Ericeira, where our surf tours take place, is a beautiful small seaside town, 40 kilometres from the Capital Lisbon. In 2011, it was made a World Surf Reserve, the first in Europe and the second in the world, to help protect the 8 kilometers of stunning beaches and waves. This beautiful town with its cobbled streets, traditional houses and welcoming locals is blessed with long summers and over 280 days of sunshine every year – but even on cloudy days, you will feel how amazing this town is. You are likely to fall in love with the charming streets and local shops, the stunning coastal views and colorful sunsets not to mention the restaurants, cafés, bakeries (with amazing pastries) and bars that will enrich your experience.

"My husband and I recently booked a surfing package with Go Active Tours in Portugal. As we have a 3 year old daughter and an 8 year old son, we were a little nervous as to whether this holiday would be suitable for them. The people at Go Active Tours were extremely helpful and went into great detail as to the suitability of the surfing courses especially for my son who was very keen to learn. The accommodation, which is geared more towards dedicated surfers than regular holiday makers, was perfectly adequate and our hosts extremely welcoming and helpful. Both my husband and son learned to surf within the week thanks to the highly skilled and friendly instructors. Overall we had a very enjoyable time and would thoroughly recommend Go Active Tours who appeal not only to dedicated solos but family groups as well."
