Portugal

Castles, port wine, colorful buildings, fresh seafood, coastal towns, pastel de nata heaven, and christiano ronaldo

destination

Are you looking for a destination with beautiful architecture, rich culture, unreal food (and wine), and a coastline that could give other European countries a run for their money? Spain who? Welcome to Portugal.

Portugal

A Splash of Color

Portuguese architecture is famous for its bold colors, bright red roofs, and handpainted artisan tiles called azulejos. While an earthquake in 1755 damaged most of Lisbon, Portugal as a whole escaped much of the WWII bombings, therefore preserving its architecture styles from all different periods of history. You can’t turn a corner without finding an Insta ready backdrop.

Flying Coast to Coast

We’re here to put Portugal on the map for INSANE coastal locations. With 1,700 kilometers of coastline, this country isn’t playing around. From the stunning Algarve in the south to the islands of the Azores, get ready for high jagged cliffs and bright blue water. We think a little trip to a Portuguese seaside town is calling your name.

Wine Not?

Need something to wash down that pastel de nata with? Good thing you’re in the land of wine. Head up to the famous (and breathtaking) Douro Valley in the north for port straight from the source and a glass of refreshing vinho verde, which translates to “green wine.” No, it’s not actually green, but it sounds cool nonetheless. Hop on on the vinho verde train early because this one’s going to blow up.

Fit for a King

Portugal is home to over 150 castles, many of which are still accessible today as museums. Or if you’re really trying to live like a 12th century royal, you can stay in castles that have been converted to hotels. One of the most famous castles in Portugal to gawk at is the Palacio Nacional da Pena in Sintra, and we’re pretty sure you can tell why by the pic. This stop is a must-do on any Portugal itinerary.

Belly laughing our way through Portugal 🇵🇹...Obrigado @surfyogabeer and all of the special souls who experienced this magic and all of these laughs with me.

@m_e_chatman

#tbt to the time that I had these tired, yet excited eyes because I opted for no sleep for 7 days straight, just so I could soak up every single second of this place with these amazing humans. •And #tbt to the time when I was @martin.straschnoy’s muse for the week, being captured by and seen through both his and @kenfrancisphotos insanely talented lens while frolicking around Portugal. Thank you both for being such rockstars with your cameras and your hearts. Love you both. •Can’t wait to see some of my Portugal crew tonight and cannot flipping with for @martin.straschnoy to arrive on my bday in a few weeks!!! Love to all of you.

✨ It’s been two weeks since we came back from Portugal and I still can’t stop thinking about my @surfyogabeer trip 💗
.
I am so freaking happy I said YES and booked this trip (thanks to a major push from @whatleahloves 😘) 👉🏻 don’t get me wrong every moment wasn’t pure laughter and Portugal perfection 🤦‍♀️ but ultimately it was oh so worth it for the people I met and what I got to experience.

This is the true story, of forty strangers, picked to live in a castle... #sybportugal

Dreams... aspirations... bucket list ideas... whatever you call them... they do come true!!! I’ve always wanted to touch the clouds. Literally. Wanted to know what it felt like to run my hands and fingers through one. To feel it against my skin. Today in the Sintra mountains 530 meters above sea level it came true. Words can not explain how happy it made me... but thank you @martin.straschnoy for capturing this amazing moment that I can cherish. Thank you for having my back and helping me so much on this trip!! I truly would not be able to have captured as much as I have without your help, your kind words and your attention to detail. You are my real #SYBPortugal MVP!!! I hope I’m fortunate enough to work with you again very soon. ☁️🙏🏽

Does everyone booze?

We get it- you’re either too busy, don’t know anyone else going, or just accidentally spent way too much on drinks this weekend. Now let’s cut the BS and get real. There will never be the perfect time to get away, being the busy human that you are. We actively encourage people to come alone on our adventures so they can meet people outside of their usual social circles. Everyone that chooses an SYB trip is there to get outside their comfort zone and meet like-minded sweaty people. Money spent on experiences is what every 100 year old says is the most important thing we can do while we’re young. Listen to Gramps and get ready to squat it out with us!
We are firmly committed to providing quality product. We detox to retox because we know that a balanced life is the best life. Your workouts will be led by some of the best fitness instructors around the country, so you’ll be living your best life in paradise while doing 100 pushups and situps a day (we make it fun, we promise). Seriously though, when was the last time you came back from vacation with a more defined six-pack? The friendships and memories that you make on our adventures so are important to us! We pride ourselves in creating experiences that will change your life.
First of all, we’re calling bull on that work event that “just happened” to pop up. But we’ll get over it and see you on the next trip. While deposits are non-transferable or refundable, your payment might be depending on time of cancellation! We will work with you to try to push the payment (minus deposit) to another trip or we can issue a refund, again depending on time of cancellation. What we can’t help you out with? The FOMO that’ll come from watching the adventure on Instagram stories from home. Check out the Terms and Conditions and About pages for more info.
Be safe and you won’t be sorry. We usually choose destinations with low crime rates but it is always wise to stay vigilant. General rule of thumb: if losing X valuable is going to ruin your trip, don’t bring it! (So keep your Yeezys and nice jewelry at home.) Petty theft is the most common type of crime that exists, so be wary of pickpockets looking for cash and always watch your bags. As a precautionary measure we typically provide safes in each room. We’ve yet to experience any considerable theft on our trips (let’s keep it that way).
Do I need to be a fitness babe or muscle man to come on these trips? No way! Not every human being walks around looking like Gigi Hadid- we feel that. All different levels are welcome- even if the only time you’ve ever broken a sweat is hustling to the fridge during commercial breaks. Coming to all workouts are highly encouraged but not mandatory and we make adjustments for various fitness levels and injuries. The point is to try something new and make memories that you’ll never forget. Check out some BLOG POSTS to hear from other non-Schwarzeneggers about their experience.
We won’t leave you hanging after you drop dat coin. We’ll email several times along the way: first after you book, second about a month and a half before the trip, and third two weeks before. Then we’ll make sure you know where to be and when. Unlike that dude from last night, we’ll be hitting you up.
Our adventures could go up to 8 days, which means you should bring at least $400 USD, unless maybe you’re feeling extra generous at the bar. Most meals are covered, but sometimes we’ll dine out and it’s a good idea to have some cha-ching. Credit cards are usually accepted but if not, we’ll let you know beforehand. But for now, get on bringin home that bread.
Take your digital detox to the next level and join us in the Philippines, get ready to step outside of your comfort zone.
This will probably be the Amalfi Coast. Nothing rejuvenates the soul like washing down plates of fresh pasta with local limoncello and floating in the clear waters of Capri.
For sure Sayulita. Between squats we’ll hydrate with shots. Workout, tan, workout, tequila, workout, pass out. You’ll come home stronger and get compliments on your sexy tan and super toned arms.
Hands down this has to be our OG trip - Nicaragua! IT IS Surf Yoga Beer!.
We're all about letting loose and not taking life too seriously, we respect choice and there's no pressure to drink if you don't want to.
