Rugby in Portugal is growing and clubs offer a fantastic welcome for visiting sides of all ages. Consider visiting for the Portugal Rugby Festival, now one of the largest in Europe.
Edwin Doran started operating in 1974 with rugby tours, and it is still our number one sport. No other operator offers a wider range of school and rugby league tours. We have in-depth knowledge and understand the sport’s mindset.
Our rugby specialists have all been on tour at some stage and we have reliable contacts in a diverse choice of destinations, from the most popular to those off the beaten track. For the dedicated rugby player, there’s nothing more life-affirming than finding on-pitch combat with formidable opponents while discovering another culture overseas.
