Your group trip in Portugal
A maritime nation with close connections to the sea, Portugal enjoys a special place in Europe. Portugal is deeply anchored in traditions. Less effusive than its neighbor Spain, with whom Portugal shares an extended border from North to South, Portugal proudly faces the waves of the Atlantic. To organize your corporate meeting or company retreat, Portugal offers attractive destinations with Lisbon or Oporto's major cities in the North. Although Lisbon airport has more flights, both cities are easily accessible by plane. Both are popular tourist destinations, with a large hotel portfolio including group accommodation and hotels suitable for meetings and team building events. Unlike some other major European cities, there are still hotels and comfortable accommodation at lower prices, particularly in low season. Meals are also very affordable. Away from its major cities, Portugal offers a string of delightful fishing villages along its coastline as well as attractive seaside resorts with sandy beaches and a mild climate, particularly in the Algarve. Whether you are looking for lively cities that are easy to access or beautiful sandy beaches for a getaway, Groupcorner has selected a wide range of hotels and accommodation perfectly suited for groups.
In Portugal there is a unique atmosphere, typical of the country, of delightful authenticity. In an age when cities seem to converge in sameness, Lisbon and Porto have kept a particular Iberian charm of old, an appreciation for the good life. In Lisbon, the paved maze of Alfama with its colorful azulejos facades contrasts with the modernism of Parque das Nações, the site of the 1998 World Fair. The Belém district reminds us of sea captains who once sailed the globe and conquered the new world. In Porto, the neighborhood of Ribeira invites you to wander its cobbled streets dotted with wine bars where you can sip port and famous wines from the Douro Valley. In the south of the country, the Algarve will delight the members in your leisure group who play golf. With plenty of sunshine, the Algarve offers a great many famous golf courses and breathtaking beaches where you can enjoy the pleasure of relaxation. Don't miss the stunning views offered by the cliffs of Cape Saint Vincent, on the western tip of Europe. Your class alumni or sports team group will absolutely fall in love with Portugal.
