Surfing in Portugal

In this beautiful region of Portugal, you’ll find the perfect place to discover surfing or improve your techniques. The beach and sea is ideal for surfing lessons for the whole family. That’s why we offer surf lessons in the Parque Natural do Litoral Norte.

Surf lessons and equipment rental

If you have never surfed before or want to improve your surfing skills, you can book lessons through Tugar. We have been working with an accredited surf school in the park for years. You can choose to take private lessons or group lessons with other surfers of your level. Our colleagues also offer rental of surfboards and wetsuits, so you don’t need to bring your own gear.

Besides surfing, there are other water activities to experience in the Parque Natural do Litoral Norte. For example, you can Stand Up Paddling and Bodyboarding or try out a yoga surfing session.

But you can also enjoy the beautiful nature on land. And if you want to relax for a while, there are plenty of cosy cafés and restaurants where you can enjoy the local cuisine and have a drink.

Other activities Tugar offers

Of course, you can also combine a few days of surfing with other activities in Portugal.

For instance, in the Arouca Geopark you can do canyoning, canoe rafting, hiking or trekking through a river. You can also try river tubing.

Or head to the Vale do Vouga where you can Stand Up Paddling or rent a mountain bike and explore the ecopista. You can also do different canyonings here, such as a canyoning especially suitable for children or, on the contrary, a challenging canyoning with an abseil of almost 30 metres.

For more information on the different options, check out Pick&Mix, Holiday Packs or Roundtrip Porto – Lisbon.

Tugar also arranges accommodation near the activities. So we can arrange a complete, tailor-made holiday for you.
