A stretch of river in the East Algarve in PortugalPortugal is one of the few countries on the green list as of May 2021. The Eastern Algarve is a wonderful area where you can experience some of the best Portugal has to offer.

With Covid restrictions the past year (2020) has been very uncertain when it came to travelling and going on holiday. And now in 2021 things are still quite unclear for many people. The rules vary for each country and this has added a layer of challenge if you’d like to travel abroad. If you’re in the United Kingdom for example, depending on your personal circumstances you currently might have to quarantine when you come back from an overseas trip. The situation is similar in many other countries, so many people are choosing to stay in their home-country for now.

Portugal on the green List of countries for UK travel

But if you do want to travel, there are certainly options that can make your life easier. Again taking the UK as an example, there is a green list of countries that are considered safe destinations to travel to. There aren’t so may yet, but one of the greenlist countries is Portugal. This means that when you come back from Portugal into the UK, you don’t have to quarantine. And of course this makes the decision to travel there much easier. For more information and the current status of countries, see the UK’s green list of countries.

For small businesses organizing walking holidays has been extremely challenging, but now that Portugal is one of the few countries with quarantine free travel for UK tourists, this coming season will hopefully be a little different for tour-operators as well as travelers there.
