Seen as one of the most peaceful destinations in Europe, Portugal is also an ideal location for finding adventure.
Cycling tours, ziplines, big wave surfing — adventure abounds and is complimented by world-renowned historical attractions.
Start with the beach. There are gorgeous white-sand coastlines along the beaches of Peniche, check out lava pools in Madeira or explore sea caves in the Algarve. For the truly brave there is cliff diving and if you really want to get your blood pressure up, head to Nazare to check out big wave surfing.
