Spain & Portugal Trip: 12 Days
Sand, Sunsets & Sangria
We kick off this trip in the Portuguese capital of Lisbon. A postcard-perfect blend of cobbled streets, ancient ruins and beautifully crafted cathedrals; you will quickly fall in love with this city. The absence of open-container laws and cheap alcohol also means that a night on the town in Bairro Alto will introduce you to one of the most raucous party areas in all of Europe. From there, we bounce down to the lovely southern coast with it's amazing beaches, sleepy towns and bars that don't seem to have a last call! We'll visit a pair of beach towns, first with Lagos, Portugal and then straight over to Tarifa, Spain. Both have enough watersports and beach bumming to keep your days fulfilled but watch out that the night life doesn't get ya because everyone needs to sleep at least a little right?
We end the trip in the Moorish city of Seville! From sangria, to tapas, to winding cobblestoned streets, sprawling cathedrals. Spain has so much to offer to the traveler. And compared to the rest of Europe, it’s incredibly affordable, making it an ideal backpacker destination. History buffs take note - Colombus' tomb is located here.
Twelve days will go by in a flash, as you float from amazing cultural experiences like Sintra, rich Spanish history, to tucked-away tapas bars.. So throw that backpack on and lets cruise the southwest corner of Europe!
