  • Trekking in Zêzere Valley

    Trekking in Zêzere Valley

    Shaped by ice flows over 20,000 years ago, the Zêzere Valley is home to one of Portugal’s most iconic road trips with all the stunning scenery you would expect of a glacial landscape. The U-shape valley is best explored in spring or summer and offers a wide selection of hiking trails which snake up the valley or down to border the Zêzere river. We offer trained guides and advice on the best conditions and gear for the trip.

  • Surf's Up

    Surf's Up

    One of Portugal’s greatest pulls is its wild and intrepid Atlantic coastline. Here along the coast of Torres Vedras it’s possible it experience some of Europes wildest waves. Whether you want to join the crowds at Nazare on the coastline, admiring pro-surfers ride 49 ft waves, or hit the water with a local instructor with over 20 years of experience and the best gear on hand, we can guarantee you’re going to enjoy the swell.

  • Kayaking in the Douro Valley

    Kayaking in the Douro Valley

    The appeal of the Douro River – with its vineyards and stylish quintas – is well known and well established. For active visitors we suggest a different, but complimentary, perspective on the river by spending a day (or more) paddling its quieter upper reaches. Around the tranquil village of Barca d’Alva, which sits on the Spanish border, the Douro is wild, scenic and untouched, and pairing kayaking downriver with a stay in one of our favourite riverside hotels makes an ideal way to experience Portugal’s most impressive waterway.

  • Cork Trekking

    Cork Trekking

    Set in the foothills of the Serra D’Ossa is the Herdade da Maroteira farm which lies on 540 hectares of forest and woodland that has been passed down through an Anglo-Portuguese family for over five generations. Hike through rich forests and montados to discover a cork tradition that has existed for centuries in Alentejo and contributes to approximately half of all cork harvested annually in the world, from early planting to final extraction of the cork.

  • Mountain Biking in Sintra

    Mountain Biking in Sintra

    We don’t just love Sintra for its pretty palaces. Sintra-Cascais Natural Park also boasts some extraordinary adventure attributes, especially as a destination for mountain biking. Start at the top of mountainous peaks, weaving through sequoia forests and emerge onto wild and rugged headlands to the most westerly point of mainland Europe, Cabo da Roca. This is just a sample of what’s available, there’s even more potential in Portugal’s surrounding regions. Whether you’re interested in mountain biking, e-biking or road biking, it’s all custom-built to fit your needs.
