Family Reunion Holidays Portugal

Holidays for large family groups in Portugal – fun watersports & outdoor adventures, accommodation and exploring!

Organising a family reunion or a large family holiday abroad can feel stressful. After all, you want everyone to have fun and reconnect, whilst also enjoying the holiday vibes! We’re here to take the stress off your hands and plan the perfect family getaway. Our group trips are great for birthday parties, anniversaries or just a well overdue catch up! Especially after a long year of lockdowns and restrictions, we can all use some quality family time.

Portugal is not only popular with families because of the warm climate and unspoiled beaches, it’s also a top adventure destination! Surfing is a must in any of our Portuguese locations, but think of sailing in the Algarve, coasteering in Lisbon and canyoning in Madeira. There are loads of fun activity options to choose from. Our tailor-made packages not only include fun outdoor activities & watersports, we also love to show you the local sights, dive into the culture and include quality group accommodation. And for the oldest and youngest generation who may not be quite as adventurous, we offer activities that are beginner friendly and accessible to most fitness levels. There’s no better way to reconnect the family than by spending time together in nature away from social media and Netflix!

Big Blue offers active family reunions across Portugal in Lisbon & Cascais, Madeira Island and West Algarve & Lagos. We work closely with a range of excellent group accommodation providers such as private villas, hotels and modern hostels. Our team will be there from the first moment of contact, all the way to the delivery of your large family getaway. We can also add in extras such as meals and airport transfers. When you’re ready just hit the ‘quote’ button, call or email us direct.

Hosted Family Reunions

With any of our Big Blue ‘Adventures’ we always aim for a personal customer service (Travel & Hospitality Award winners for ‘excellence in customer service’) and have a friendly face there to welcome you to your large family holiday in Portugal. We are on hand to host the key parts so you can sit back and relax, we’ll do the organising for you and bring some good vibes too!

Prefer a self-guided family getaway? No probs! You don’t have to book a hosted adventure, we can create a trip itinerary to help you organise your activities and book you into one of our quality accommodation options. It’s also possible to just book a day trip or the activity only!

Pics & Highlights Video

On a hosted family adventure we take our GoPro cameras and shoot some cool pictures & videos. We’ll send these to you afterwards and even edit a personal highlights video, the best way to remember your family reunion in Portugal!


If you need airport transfers or transport from your accommodation to our activities then we can arrange that for you, in fact it is usually expected on a group trip like a multi-generational holiday. We have mini-busses and Jeeps available for groups of all sizes. Our mini-busses are also available for evening out returns and various day-trips to surrounding areas. A popular option is morning activity followed by lunch and some drinks at a local restaurant or beach-bar before heading back to the family group accommodation!

Meals & Drinks

You can choose between Bed & Breakfast, half board or all-inclusive for your large family holiday in Portugal. We can also add extras like a drinks reception, packed-lunch and BBQ nights. Just add it to your ‘quote’ options and we will get that included in your family reunion package!

Exploring & Tours

On the side of the watersports & outdoor activities we love to add in some extra sightseeing around the local area. We can create an itinerary that suits your preferences, whether that’s exploring Lisbon’s lesser known areas such as Sintra & The Arrabida Natural Park, the tropical surroundings of Madeira or the epic beaches of Algarve. Like the idea of checking out the local area? Let us know and we can factor that into your family day out!

Big Blue Adventures organised our company's first off-site trip to Madeira and it was awesome!... Everything was well-planned from the activities & tours to the lunches/dinners. We had the most amazing time and through the activities we got to know each other and share lovely memories and experiences. Thank you so much for your effort and everything you did for us!I fully recommend Big Blue Adventures!!read more

I'm so so happy I stumbled upon Big Blue to host our summer retreat.Initial communication with... Dan was super fast, friendly and effortless. They put together an amazing package first time round with the option to make any changes as we go. They were super flexible considering we booked our retreat during high season and only 2! months ahead.On-site, we had Nuno, Igor and Isabel hosting us. Such a warm, kind and wholesome people - already missing them. Again, super flexible and trying to accommodate all of our needs. All transfers were included and again very flexible. Same goes for dietary restrictions.The offsite itself was a banger, we stayed in a beautiful hotel in Cascais, went paddleboarding, had plenty of free time to enjoy the place, all meals included (very delicious by the way) and Lisbon city tour with Tuk Tuks was just a cherry on top.All this with a very reasonable budget. 11/10 would recommend and book them againread more

Why We Love This…

“Family time is a special time, and what better way to reunite the family than an adventure holiday or weekend away in Portugal. Seeing multi-generations of families reconnecting through the power of outdoor activities like surfing in Algarve is something that I just love to see. Our style getaways provide a certain kind of feel-good buzz, so seeing families smiling and loving life ‘offline’ together away from phones and tech is something to cherish in our jobs.”
