Leiria Family Adventure Holiday

Leiria is a beautiful district in Portugal that offers an array of adventurous activities that can be enjoyed by the entire family. A family adventure holiday here will bring you closer to each other and nature, providing memories that will last you a lifetime.

Enjoy unwinding every day by practicing yoga. A qualified instructor will guide through sessions that are tailored to suit the family's level of experience. Yoga is an excellent way to stretch and invigorate your muscles, especially after a day of horse riding or surfing. One of the highlights of the trip is horse riding. The family will embark on a scenic trail ride through the rolling hills of the Leiria region, exploring quaint villages and admiring breathtaking views. Riding on horseback also allows you to get up close and personal with nature, without disturbing the natural habitat.

Surfing is another thrilling adventure that should be on everyone's to-do-list. The family will be equipped with top-quality surfing gear and taught by experienced instructors to ride the waves like pros. The blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean are perfect for learning or refining your surfing skills, making it an ideal activity for beginners and pros. Taking a tour to observe the dolphins in their natural habitat is another perfect way to bond with the family. In the company of a certified guide, you will sail out into the ocean and experience the beauty of these intelligent and playful sea creatures.

Overall, a family adventure holiday in Leiria is a perfect way to spend quality time with your loved ones, while experiencing the excitement that comes with trying new activities.

Government Travel Safety Advice

We strongly recommend that you check your government's travel advisory for up-to-date information and advice about your destination: safety and security, entry requirements, health, local laws and customs. For UK citizens, check the latest Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office advice. Please refer to the COVID-19 entry requirements page for any country-specific conditions of entry. 

Visa and Passport Information for UK Passport Holders

Passport validity

If you are planning to travel to an EU country (except Ireland), or Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino or Vatican City, you must follow the Schengen area passport requirements. 

Your passport must be:

Issued less than 10 years before the date you enter the country (check the ‘date of issue’)

valid for at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave (check the ‘expiry date’)

You must check your passport meets these requirements before you travel. If your passport was issued before 1 October 2018, extra months may have been added to its expiry date.

Contact the embassy of the country you are visiting if you think that your passport does not meet both these requirements. Renew your passport if you need to.


You can travel to countries in the Schengen area for up to 90 days in any 180-day period without a visa. This applies if you travel as a tourist, to visit family or friends, to attend business meetings, cultural or sports events, or for short-term studies or training. If you are travelling to Portugal and other Schengen countries without a visa, make sure your whole visit is within the 90-day limit. Visits to Schengen countries within the previous 180 days before you travel count towards your 90 days. To stay longer, to work or study, for business travel or for other reasons, you will need to meet the Portuguese government’s entry requirements. 

Passport stamping

Check your passport is stamped by the border officer when you enter and exit Portugal as a visitor. You can use the staffed immigration booths or, if you are aged 18 and over, the e-gates designated for UK and some other non-EU nationals. Hand your passport for stamping to the border officer after you have passed through the e-gate. You cannot use the e-gates to exit Portugal if you entered the Schengen area via another member state. Border guards use passport stamps to check you’re complying with the 90-day visa-free limit for short stays in the Schengen area. If relevant entry or exit stamps are not in your passport, a border officer may presume that you have overstayed your visa-free limit.

If you are missing entry/exit stamps, you can show evidence of when and where you entered or exited the Schengen area and ask the border officer to add this date and location in your passport. Examples of acceptable evidence include boarding passes and tickets.

Other nationalities should consult their local embassy or consular office.


There are no longer any COVID-19 vaccination, testing or passenger locator form requirements for entry to mainland Portugal, Madeira and the Azores. If you’re travelling to Portugal via other countries, such as France and Spain , check the entry requirements for those countries before you travel. For general health and vaccination advice, please visit the NaTHNaC website - http://travelhealthpro.org.uk/countries. Please check the latest requirements with your travel clinic or doctor prior to departure.
