Portugal has a well developed transportation system. I have covered it extensively in my guide on all the ways of getting around Portugal fast and on the cheap. But Portugal stands out as a country that have a few means of transportation that are particularly fun to use, which I want to highlight here.

In fact, these ways of traveling in Portugal are so exciting that you should take them just for the fun of it, even if you don’t need to go anywhere.

Enjoy cruising on ferry through a maze of sailboats to get to the ocean beaches in the Algarve. Climb up steep hills on funiculars, zip through narrow streets on trams, ride a cable car, or get a private tour of narrow alleys on tuk-tuk. You can even float on a rafting boat for even more exciting way of traveling.

This guide covers some of the most enjoyable and fun ways for hopping between locations in Portugal, while soaking the ambience along the way. And all these ways are flight free, with no airplanes involved, as a bonus!

Hello, I’m Tatiana. I’m hopelessly in love with old uniquely looking buildings, and cozy urban scenes, and finding best places in Europe to go.
