Santa Cruz | Day 4 to 5

Located on the glorious shores of Ericeira, on Portugal’s West Coast, Noah Surf House has one motto “At Sea We’re Home.” That’s why the entrance is on top of the sand, why the windows and balconies face the azure ocean, and why chilled surf culture informs everything they do. Whether you’re looking to kick back or get involved with surfing, skating or yoga, this is so much more than just a place to stay.

Learn to surf

Portugal’s west coast is one of the best spots in Europe to find perfect surfing conditions for all abilities, and has so many golden beaches that overcrowding never becomes a problem. Take one of Noah’s surfing classes and you’ll be using the best gear on the market while being trained up by instructors with more than 15 years of experience, so no matter your skill level, you’ll be mastering the waves in no time.

Paddle board

If want to hit the waves in a different way, Stand Up Paddle Boarding, or SUP might be for you. It’s just you, your big board and an oar, and as well as being an incredible core strength workout, it’s a fun and unique way to explore the Atlantic from an upright perspective.

Explore Porto on E-bikes

Porto | Day 3

Porto is a stunning city to cycle around. Unfortunately, it’s pretty hilly, too. This E-bike tour has the solution, allowing you to breeze through Porto’s iconic sites with the help of a hill-conquering engine when you need that extra push ( it’s not cheating if you pretend to pedal and put on your most determined face).


Sleep at Selina

Visit the Venice of Portugal

Aveiro | Day 4

Situated on the cusp of Portugal’s huge system of lagoons, Aveiro is a colorful and seriously underrated ‘mini-venice.’ And like Venice, it’s mazy canals are best explored by boat. No, not gondolas - these are called moliceiros, and though they were originally used for harvesting seaweed, they now exist so you can glide through the city in style.

Climb the Arrábida Bridge

Porto | Day 3

In 1963, the Arrábida Bridge was the largest concrete arch in the world, and today is the only bridge climb in Europe. This is a unique opportunity to climb one of the most iconic structures in Portugal and a serene way to enjoy views of the spectacular city below.
