Portugal Por Favor! 2025

Following a huge demand for our sold out trip to Portugal in 2024, we’re once again headed back to one of our favourite countries!

As always, we’ll call the town of Cascais home and during our time there we will embark on a week of delicious vegan food experiences, lots of fun excursions, and we’ll enjoy an endless supply of laughter and connections. As always, we will stay with our friends at Casa Vela Hotel which feels like our own little tropical paradise right in the centre of peaceful Cascais. 

Trip highlights include: a tour of lovely Cascais, a visit to Sintra to tour the historical Pena Palace, a traditional tile painting workshop, a Portuguese wine tasting (all vegan of course), cooking demo experiences, a city tour through Lisbon, an optional yoga class and lots of time to relax, connect and enjoy!

And the best part? Everything is vegan and we organize the whole trip for you! All you have to do is show up at the Lisbon airport where we’ll pick you up, and then you can let the relaxation begin! 

So don’t wait to sign up as 2024 year had a large waiting list of fabulous guests who will hopefully have the chance to join us in 2025! Hope to see you in beautiful Portugal very soon.
