Some Retreat Activities to Consider in Lisbon

The activities Lisbon can offer will really have your group connecting on another level. Take the opportunity to learn about this fascinating culture through interactive experiences that provoke thoughtful discussion and merry collaboration.

Your experience will kick off in the market, where you will collect all the necessary fresh ingredients for your meal. Then, upon return to the cooking school, the group will be divided into stations as each team follows their expert to make a course of the meal. The chef/instructor will teach you how to prepare a traditional Portuguese meal consisting of fish dish, meat dis, and dessert. When all the hard work is done, dig in and enjoy with your colleagues paired with excellent Portuguese wines.
