Here come the bears! Welcome to Lisboa…
If you have been to Portugal, you’ll know by now that most Portuguese men tend to be Latino-looking, dark and hairy. Thus, it is not surprising that it’s capital, Lisbon, has a large bear (and their fans) community. Lisbon is also becoming increasingly known as a LGBT travel destination for Europeans and others. It offers plenty of bars, clubs and things to do, together with fantastic weather, tons of history and fantastic value-for-money.
This year, Lisbon’s Bear Pride will last for a total of 5 days (yes, five!) and the partners of the event include some of the most prominent gay venues: Bar Tr3s, Trumps, Finalmente and Trombeta Bath.
The popular bear cruise returns as will the election of Mr Bear Lisbon! Cruise parties, circuit events and more will complete a full schedule that will keep you busy!
Here are the hotels we recommend that have good reviews and keep you close to all the action,

Recommended Hotels in Lisbon
Lisbon is quite a compact city with two distinct gay districts,Principe Real area and in the old Bairro Alto quarter. Barrio Alto tends to lean more towards the mixed, gay-friendly groups. Principe Real hosts the best bear and cruising bars. We have selected hotels within easy walking distance from both areas. Remember, Lisbon is a city of hills, so sometimes a taxi is the best option!
