This destination is a little harder to get to, but still well worth the effort. Portugal isn’t all beaches, and Serra da Estrela is home to the highest mountain peak on continental Portugal (the highest in all of Portugal being in Pico Island, Azores). Nature-lovers take notes, because this remote mountain range is uniquely beautiful and the only place to go skiing in winter. Sparsely speckled with tiny villages, nature is the main attraction on the mountain, but foodies may enjoy tasting the homemade honey and creamy, pungent cheese.
