Discover Arrábida, a magical place with breathtaking seas, sky, and mountains. See the Arrábida mountain's most beautiful high coastal cliffs along a calm and crystal blue sea. It is a place of high contrasts, with a very rich geological, ecological and cultural heritage linked with agriculture, fishing and cuisine. Your 5-hour package includes snorkeling in the Arrábida waters, sightseeing and a trek through the mountains, or over the shadows of its valleys and peaks. Along the coastline several beaches await for you, with fine, warm sand, bathed by the Atlantic Ocean. Through the green vegetation of the Natural Park, there are clearings that unveil unique perspectives of the beaches and the sea. Experience all this in one day, and take the opportunity to dive into the amazing waters and discover the wildlife that is part of the beautiful coastline.
We actually ended up doing the surf experience because the weather wasn’t ideal. It was excellent, the tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and were great surf instructors. Highly recommend
Start the day with a visit to the Market of Livramento, one of the best in the world according to the American magazine The Times. After enjoying a typical fishermen's breakfast and seeing the local offer of fresh food and products, head to the Arrábida Nature Park. Take a swim at one of the idyllic beaches of this park and discover a hidden cave. Afterwards, head to the top of the mountain to get a panoramic view over the park, and marvel at the amazing sights. Here, you will also find a monastery that was once used by Franciscan Monks. Head back to Setúbal for a typical lunch with several different tapas of Portuguese food. At the end of the day, visit one of the local wineries for a tour and wine tasting.
We had a great day!! Nadine, our guide, was expert of every place. We were 5 in our car and had a lot of fun creating a beautiful group.
Between Setúbal and Cabo Espichel, there are small visitable caves, marvellous hidden beaches between cliffs, impossible to access by land and uncrowded by tourists. See inlets with calm and transparent waters, inviting dives, and several species of dolphins that live here. Embark on this adventure and have an unforgettable experience. After meeting at Sesimbra, visit Lapa de Santa Margarida and discover its history. See Europe's highest escarpments, Serra do Risco, and snorkel at Gorgónias Garden. Explore the fisherman ruins, swim and relax at Ribeira do Cavalo Beach, discover the caves, grottos and rock formations at Cape Espichel, before relaxing at Galapinhos Beach, voted Europe's best beach in 2017.

Thanks to Filipe for this experience! We already knew him from his surfing lessons. (which we totally recommend as well). We enjoyed the blue water, the nature, good weather and the great talks with Filipe. Overall he gave us great tipps and told us a lot about Arrabida. We totally recommend it. Blessings, Mathea and Laura
Felipe is a true job master! Trust him to bring you to the right place at the right time. We snorkel in a beautiful bay of the National park. Highly recommended experience, different from the usual ones, for the tourists visiting Lisbon.
It was a wonderful ride. I recommend 100%. I was a little hesitant to score, because it's winter and it's cold, but I took a chance. Worth it! Beautiful beaches, small caves and we saw dolphins…;)
Exciting experience - snorkeling on an (almost) lonely beach.
An excellent morning exploring the paradise of Arrábida.
