Full description
Hike the best trails in Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, and admire beautiful sights of the Portuguese coast on this full-day tour.

The unique vegetation and ocean-side location of Sintra-Cascais Natural Park make it perfect for exploring by foot. The park presents a stunning diversity of environments and landscapes, including sand dunes, forests, lakes, and a rugged coastline where high cliffs are interspersed with lovely beaches.

Walk through dense forest as you explore the best trails and places of this mystical region. Then experience the beautiful town of Sintra. Its unique characteristics have led UNESCO to classify Sintra as a World Heritage site with the special category of "cultural landscape".

Hike through amazing scenery to the incredible Moorish Castle, dating back to the 8th century. Visit the fairytale-like Pena Palace, a wild fantasy of domes, towers, ramparts, and walkways as you take in the view from one of the highest mountain peaks of the town.

Great Experience and Very Flexible

Our guide was very informative and entertaining and it was quite clear Phillipe was tailoring the walk to our needs and desires coupled with the climate on the day. The gourmet lunch was excellent and well worth the additional cost. I would certainly recommend to others and was very good value for the money.
