This could be your next unforgettable destination

Portugal has long taken an enlightened approach to LGBTQ+ rights, with same-sex marriage being legalised back in 2010. Travellers seeking sun, sea and sand tend to make a beeline for the Algarve and it’s a great destination for families too, with activities including go-karting, aqua parks, dolphin-watching expeditions, horse-riding and mini golf.

Elsewhere, adventurous travellers should head to the country’s only national park, Peneda-Gerês, home of white-water rafting and world-class canyoning. Cycle along the Roman aqueduct in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Evora, or take a tram and tour around the bustling capital of Lisbon – teenagers will love the street art on display throughout the city. Treat them to a Pastéis de Nata to keep them sweet.

Elle Says:

If you’re looking for a romantic stay, rather than an LGBTQ+ family holiday, let us know. While Porto’s a great destination for grown-up culinary adventures, go further afield for a wine tour around the Douro Valley, one of the world’s oldest demarcated wine regions.

If you have any questions about this destination, then let me know. I can help you plan a holiday here and give you recommendations that you may not have thought of!

Destination Rainbow

Destination Rainbow is an independent travel agency specialising in LGBTQ+ family holidays. But we have many strings to our multi-coloured bow. We also love planning romantic escapes for couples and are always happy to hear from friends and allies who need to escape to a sun-kissed beach or finally fulfil that long-awaited adventure.

Our travel agency is run by Elle, an LGBTQ+ mum of 3 who knows how important it is to get a family holiday right. We offer expert advice on how safe a country is and recommend hotels that welcome LGBTQ+ families with open arms. By researching the best resorts, chatting to those who work there and hearing our own guests’ experiences, we are building a collection of favourite retreats where you can be your true selves. They are competitively priced, too.

Our ethos is about personal service, trust and building a lasting relationship, so you know exactly who to call whenever you need a holiday.
