Full description
Wander through the dense mountain province of Beira Baixa, where charming villages are tucked into forested valleys and tumbling rivers weave through enormous rock formations. On this private day tour, walk along the region’s excellent trails, wandering past cork, carob and olive trees.

Your excursion begins when your guide picks you up at your hotel in Lisbon and whisks you away to the Portuguese countryside. As you drive, listen to an informative overview of the region’s history, learning how these peaceful villages were once protectors of the country, serving as an outer rim of security with their stone-built façades. Visit a handful of these villages, perched high among rolling hilltops, offering panoramic views that made it nearly impossible for would-be invaders to approach undetected. 

Follow hiking trails meandering through the nearby forests, passing by tumbling rivers and glacial valleys, linking many of the villages together. Take a break and enjoy a picnic-style lunch of local specialties while soaking up the views. Along your journey move through peaceful groves of cork, carob, and olive trees as your guide tells you stories and legends about the region’s history. As the day comes to an end, it’s time to return to Lisbon.
