Despite being the country’s largest city, Lisbon is conveniently compact with distinct areas for bar-hopping, shopping and stunning beaches.

Being close to the Atlantic Ocean, Lisbon also offers different water-sports including, diving, water skiing, jet-skis, and even Catamaran sailing lessons.

You set sail ready for a beautiful tour of the white beaches and crystal seas, sipping cocktails, swimming and hopping back on board when the smell of a sizzling BBQ beckons.
In the evening, get to grips with the Portuguese culture by booking a cocktail masterclass, where you will learn the unique recipes of some of Lisbon’s most popular drinks, following onto embracing the spirit of Lisbon in dance lessons, where you’ll test your moves with award winning Salsa or Hip-Hop dancers.
You can then indulge in a VIP limousine experience, toasting with champagne as you’re driven to the best bars and clubs in the capital. Lisbon offers a vibrant nightlife scene with Barrio Alto being the best district to head to, from quirky local hangouts to infamous hot-spots like Lust, Ministerium and Lux, owned by hollywood actor John Malkovich, this district is home to more than 250 bars and clubs.
