Caravan lovers planning on touring the Iberian region this summer have been encouraged to explore the Portuguese countryside by a travel expert.
Martina Kerk, of the Algarve Promotion Bureau, said that the region offers so much more than just the traditional tourist hotspots on the coast.
“The Algarve’s warm climate with average temperatures of around 20 degrees Celsius allows visitors to experience the depths of the region at their leisure,” she said.
Ideal spots for holidaymakers on caravan tours include the Via Algarviana trail, the Ria Formosa Natural Park and the hills of Monchique.
Food lovers can enjoy the region’s wine tasting opportunities and rich gastronomy, including delicious fresh seafood, she added.
Those taking their caravan to Portugal this holiday period won’t be alone, however, as recent figures from On The Beach show that bookings to the Algarve region for Easter breaks are up 90 per cent year-on-year.
