Short flight from the UK
Competitive sporting fixtures
Very popular winter training camps


Portugal is only a short flight away from the UK and offers a warm climate, lovely scenery , interesting sightseeing and some good competitive sporting fixtures. Popular touring destinations within Portugal include the attractive capital city, Lisbon, as well as the beachside resorts of the Algarve on the south coast. The north of the country is also an option to include the city of Porto.

Football is obviously a national passion and city sightseeing tours can include stadium visits. Yet rugby is also gaining in popularity and a winter training camp down in the Algarve can easily be incorporated with competitive rugby fixtures and even a game across the border in Seville.

You will find sports such as football, rugby and hockey available in Portugal. Swimming, tennis and basketball too. And then of course there are the golf courses….

Netball is not played in Portugal but there are netball courts available for training camps with potential fixtures against other UK touring sides. If your emphasis is on training and team-building Portugal should be considered as an option.

A good destination, interesting culture and within easy reach of the UK. Portugal is most definitely worth considering for your next tour overseas.

The tour itself, the services and facilities at “Browns” were fantastic, the only thing that would have improved the tour would have been stronger opposition. Rachel at Living With The Lions was outstanding throughout, always on hand to help solve or answer questions.
Our tour to Italy was a great success and you were very accommodating, cost effective and flexible.
