Included excursions

Northern Portugal's nature is spectacular and Goodtimes aims to uncover this area for their clients. A week-long surfing with yoga holiday with them will include a visit to a beautiful waterfall in the area as well as an optional visit to the local market.


Northern Portugal is a quiet and still a relatively non-tourist part of Europe. The surf camp is located in Gelfa, about 10 minutes from the Spanish border. The next bigger town is Viana do Castelo, with its beautiful traditional part of town and then, of course, Porto, which is about an hour's drive away.
