A balance of walking and culture in Portugal.

After a two night stay in Lisbon we walked from Cascais to Sintra. The opportunities to explore the countryside and visit historic sites made the holiday enjoyable, relaxing and educational.

Active days and peaceful places to stay.

A great balance between walking along the flower-covered coast and among hills with great views, visiting fascinating castles and palaces, and peaceful hospitable places to stay. Good food and service every time.

Hiking tour in Sintra and visit of Lisbon, Portugal

Great choice of routes in Sintra with nice hotels. We enjoyed the scenery, the cultural aspects and the people.
Well explained, we had perfectly designed routes and things to do at our leisure. With the transfer of our luggage it was a no worry and stress free hiking vacations. All was suggested with addresses well picked. Like a guided tour without the promiscuity of the guide and a group. Remarkably selected small hotels with top quality service and location.
Great choice for independent minded people who like green, silence and considerate relation with hosts.

This was a six-day walking holiday between four excellent hotels west of Lisbon. All breakfasts were provided, plus some evening meals and some picnics. The route took in coast, cliff-tops, woods and mountains with outstanding views, plus the chance to visit stunning castles and palaces.

Our first self guided walking holiday. The detail in the notes and maps provided ( well before our departure to allow detailed study and reflection) was extremely reassuring and made walk very enjoyable.
