Full description

The adventure begins through the countryside following the centenary tram line, inside Sintra’s rural area towards Colares. You will have the opportunity to see the simplicity of our typical villages, and as proof of this, we will show you the oldest Wine Cellar in the country, where you can get to know a little of Portugal’s winemaking traditions, which remain intact, from the ancient times to the present day. (not available on Sundays) From the wine cellar, we head to the coast to one of our favourite beaches, considered the “Santorini of Portugal”, – a small village found between the ocean and the cliffs – a heavenly location with a natural pool and stunning views.

Continue on the coastline towards the most famous beaches in the area, and as we are getting there ahead of the crowds, we are lucky enough to enjoy the vast ocean avoiding the vast “ocean of people instead”. Through paths and trails, on top of the cliffs, we continue of adventure taking you to our secret location, which can only be reached with the help of a 4×4 jeep so off-grid that even most of the locals are unaware of. Try not to lose your breath as this magnificent setting shows you breathtaking landscapes, that we are sure you will never forget! Cross the mountain on an off-road trail and raise some dust on your way to Sintra Center getting to our last visit of the day: the most iconic palace, with the best postcard-like views of the country: Pena Palace.

Surprising the rural walk along the coast and mountains with a lot of contact between history and nature. Guide Alexandre knows a lot of local history and important tips.
