Green Waves Portugal

  • Rua Cruz das Almas 94, Ferrel, Portugal
  • Sep 1 - 29, 2019 (29 days)

Event Highlights

  • Food
  • All the meals offered are homemade, with a wide variety of local fresh produce and a pinch of our secret ingredient - love. All our meals are vegan but we also offer vegetarian options upon request. Upon booking you'll be asked to fill out a special form in case you have any food allergies or intolerances so we can adjust our menu for you.
  • Surf & Yoga
  • Portugal is without doubt the best surf destination in Europe! You will discover the amazing world of surfing with the guidance of passionate surfers and ocean lovers. Our lessons are the best choice for beginners at all fitness levels. To complement your experience we've added one yoga session with a certified yoga instructor to the program.
  • Sightseeing
  • A trip to Portugal cannot be complete without visiting authentic Portuguese places. We will take you to Óbidos - a small village which preserved its medieval spirit until today. You will climb real castle walls, walk in the labyrinths of narrow streets and try its traditional cherry liqueur (which is served in an edible chocolate cup, yum!).
