July and August
If you’re wondering whether you can sneak a few days in Minho into a summer holiday in Portugal (or which loops up into Galicia) then we’d certainly put it on the table.
Temperatures generally stay below 30 degrees and rainfall tales right off. So whilst there are better, more comfortable months to spend all day out walking, if we’re sensible about the planning and give you a good range of activities to choose from, then why not?
Jump down to the Costa Vicentina in Alentejo and you have the makings of a terrific, if a little tropical summer break.
