Portugal offers any type of tourist a great escape all year round, however in the summer when the weather is great and the atmosphere relaxing, is when the country receives its main influx of visitors.
One of the reasons why Portugal is so popular is because of its close proximity to the UK. Sometimes a flight from London to Portugal is just a short one to two hours, which means that people can quickly travel without wasting a lot of their day flying.
There is also a lot of charm to Portugal, especially in the popular region of the Algarve. There are many resorts specifically catered to UK tourists, but if you escape these areas you can also find an authentic and beautiful Portugal, which many of the locals also enjoy.

If you want to avoid all the crowds, you may hire a tour guide that will bring you to the most popular and accessible hiking or biking trails.
