Feed the Animals at Badoca Safari Park: Arriving at this 90-hectare (222-acre) nature reserve, you might think you’ve travelled to the wilds of Africa. The grounds are home to more than 250 freely roaming animals, including giraffes, zebras, and wildebeest. You can also see caged tigers. With special access arranged by Four Seasons, kids can help the wardens prepare the animals’ breakfasts, feed the quarantined animals and mingle amongst the kangaroos, yaks and chimpanzees. See Lisbon Through Four Seasons Eyes for additional details.

Surfing Clinic for Kids: Portugal’s Dream Coast offers near-perfect conditions for surfers of all ages and abilities. Junior surfers can begin along the shore with body-boarding—the art of catching the waves on a small body-sized piece of polystyrene. Once they’re ready to step it up, they can learn how to take off from the beach and stay upright on the waves—all on soft, safe boards with expert instructors close at hand. See Lisbon Through Four Seasons Eyes for additional details.

Behind the Scenes at the Lisbon Zoo: Young animal-lovers can get hands-on with the animals at the impressive Lisbon Zoo, founded in 1884. Kids can join backstage tours—meeting cute meerkats and lemurs, helping the bird trainer tend to colourful parrots and macaws, and enjoying a special encounter with cuddly koalas. After a picnic lunch, watch the dolphin and sea lion show, then ride the cable car for an amazing view of the hippos, tigers and lions. See Lisbon Through Four Seasons Eyes for additional details.
