Cheap flights to Portugal

Portugal is a unique and lively country, which has come a long way since it held the status of the poorest country in Europe back in the early 1970s. A place to enjoy sun-drenched beaches, fairytale-like castles and rolling hillsides, Portugal will captivate your senses from the crowded streets of its capital, Lisbon, to the riverfront romance of Porto. A visit to Coimbra is a must-see, home to one of the oldest universities in Europe, which was built in 1929. If you’re keen to join into the festivities when the sun goes down, you’re most likely to enjoy Funchal, a harbour and cathedral city on the island archipelago of Madeira, which is perpetually sunny and full of busy bars and backstreets. Student Flights can get you cheap flights to Portugal and our well-travelled and dedicated travel agents will assist you to put together the holiday package of your dreams.

About Portugal

Portugal is located on the Iberian peninsula at the western topmost part of Europe, close to Spain. The country has changed a lot since it was liberated in 1974 and visitors can enjoy trawling through its historic past while biding their time on sunny beaches and postcard-perfect river cruises. If you’re into windsurfing or kite surfing or you want to try these out, you’re in luck if you’re planning a Portugal escape. Surfing conditions are ripe for the picking in Portugal throughout most of the year, and the River Douro offers up plenty of water-based activities too if you do become tired of Portugal’s many expansive beaches. A visit to Guimaraes is a must if you’re in Portugal. The first king of Portugal fought the battle of Sao Mamede here in 1128 and some of the original castles remain – this is a history tour your teacher could never give you. A day out on the water is best spent just off mainland Portugal in Vila Franca do Compo in the Azores, where you can get up close and personal with a dolphin or 10, and take in the wild green landscapes of the coast along the islands.
