Vitor, your local contact in Portugal
My name is Vitor Pereira, I'm 49 years old and I'm a nature guide in South Portugal. I love kayaking, free diving, photography and traveling in Africa!
I've been doing nature tours in Portugal since my twenties and along the time I specialized myself in the birds of Algarve and local fauna. I create programs for people that like nature and adventure tours. I know my region well therefore I like to teach people about the culture of my country with its variety of landscapes, botanic and animal richness, gastronomic and historical values.
Let's go to Portugal !
For such a small country we have an enormous range of interesting reasons to visit us. Our food and wine is very appreciated and we have an extraordinary weather. Furthermore, we are one of the oldest countries in the world.
We don't have industries to pollute our country therefore there are many things that can only be found under these conditions. The sun shines 300 days per year, in autumn we have birds migration between Europe and Africa, in summer we can watch dolphins and whales and in spring we can watch fields of dizzying colors in the Alentejo.
People are known for being very friendly all over Portugal. They are easy-going, smiling, humble and helpful people.
We are known for being one of the most peaceful countries in the world.
Portugal can be visited all year around. December and January are the coldest months but it never gets below zero.
