Europe is more fun with a Portugal Stopover.


Portugal’s myriad riches await, from surfing and wine to golf and mouthwatering cuisine. And the country’s flag carrier makes it easier than ever to discover all the delights with its stopover program. TAP Air Portugal allows travelers to add a free stopover in Lisbon or Porto from one to 10 days.


Eager to catch waves in Portugal? With TAP’s stopover offer, not only can travelers visit an additional destination, but they can also access exclusive offers and specials, like the current Surf in Portugal one. Surfing is a year-round option in Portugal and the country’s coastline boasts ample spots to surf, bodysurf, windsurf, kite surf and paddle surf in areas like Norte da Nazaré Beach, Carcavelos, Ericeira, Peniche and many more.
