 Day by Day

 Day 1 - Meeting and briefing

Meeting with the participants at the airport and transfer to the hotel. Briefing and delivery of the necessary material.

Cascais is an old fishermen's village, that due to its natural and scenic values, experienced a surge in popularity, that turned it in the favorite destination of Portuguese and foreign elites from the 19th century onwards. The arrival and electrification of the railroad were crucial to the progress of the municipality, being the main factor for its urbanization since 1930. Since then, it has grown to assert itself as one of the main suburbs of Lisbon and one of the main tourism destinations in the world. 

Places to visit: City centre, Marina, Boca do Inferno, Rainha Beach, Cascais walkway, go to Santini, the most famous portuguese icecream

Accommodation in Cascais

 Day 2 -  Walking & Yoga Guincho 

This day starts with a transfer from the hotel to the starting point - Praia do Guincho. 


CLIMB: 408 M 

You will start the day on the amazing (and most famous in the area) Guincho beach, which you will cross. Enjoy the soft sand on your toes and the smell of the ocean! At the end you will reach the Abano beach, the second most famous, right by the cliff! Notice the amount of surfers on the water, as this is considered one of the best beaches for surfing in the entire country! Last but not least, after hiking a little bit more, you will reach the Grota beach.

From there you will start going up the road until you reach Malveira da Serra. Due to its privileged location, Malveira da Serra has been growing its population a lot; but you can still find some leftovers of the more rural times, mostly noticeable on their bread, as they still prepare the cereal on the few windmills left. Here you can stop for a coffee and a snack at Panisol, one of the portuguese bakeries.

You will then pass by two other villages - Alcorvim de Cima and Alcorvim de Baixo - little villages in between the trees where people started to build their houses. 

The last village you'll pass by is Charneca, that got its name due to its characteristics. The vegetation of this area is mainly xerophilous, and the most typical is heather (calluna vulgaris). Back in the day "charneca" was the name used to describe arid and rocky terrain covered with heather.

Your hike will finish back at the Guincho Bar, where you will meet with the yoga instructor and enjoy an amazing session! And now you have the rest of the day to appreciate the beauty of this beach, and work on your tann!

Since you have the afternoon free, stay at the beach, visit Cascais, or get the train and visit our awsome capital Lisbon. 

Now you can choose to get the transfer with us, or stay at the beach and return later at your own. 

Return to Cascais:
Bus - 405 or 415 - 2
Uber - 6€ - 8

 Day 3 - The Wonderful World of Sintra

This day starts with a transfer to the starting point - Sintra centre. 

APPROXIMATE DURATION: 4 HOURS (including the visit to the garden)
CLIMB: 350 M

After a short transfer we arrive at the heart of the village, home of the National Palace of Sintra. It is now time to visit one of the many famed coffee shops of Sintra - Piriquita - to savour a coffee and a regional cake, while watching the palace skyline. The National Palace of Sintra, featuring its two unique chimneys, is located at the urban centre of Sintra. It is the most important building constructed for the Royal Court in Portugal, and dates back to the 15th and 16th centuries. 

Then we head towards the romantic Hotel Lawrence - the oldest hotel in the Iberian Peninsula and mentioned in the novel "Os Maias", of the famous Portuguese writer Eça de Queirós. Many known people slept in this hotel, including Lord Byron, who made it internationally famous. 

Continuing along the beautiful and characteristic streets of Sintra, we arrive at Quinta da Regaleira*. Quinta da Regaleira is a singular palace with intricate carvings in wood and stone that tells us about Portugal and the mythological tradition of the Portuguese people. It was acquired at the end of the 19th century by the millionaire António Carvalho Monteiro, who brought from Italy the architect Luigi Manini. Most of its beauty comes from the fact that it was constructed on the ruins of a medieval convent, and that it displays a mixture of three styles - gothic, manueline and renaissance. 

*If you want to make this a whole day trip, we advise you to visit the Quinta! Adult ticket - 10€. 

Further on we will find the Quinta de Seteais*. This neo-classic “quinta” was built in 1760 for the Dutch consulate and trader, Daniel Giedmeester. Legend says that when the bill was presented to the owner, he heaved seven (sete) sighs (ais) and so, inadvertently, gave the quinta his name. Today it functions as a luxury hotel with interior frescoes in the salons, painted in the graceful style of Jean Pillement. 

*The visit of the gardens is free, so go ahead and enjoy the view!

Afterwards, we turn left into a narrow road, all surrounded by luxuriant vegetation, leading to the magic Pena Palace*, implanted in a rocky formation with its stunning gardens that are the exponent of romanticism of the 19th century, having more than five hundred species of trees from all over the world.

*The visit of the Gardens is included in this tour. If you have time, besides the Gardens, visit the Palace (ticket sold separately).

Once the visit to the Palace finishes, we will start our descent back to the historical center, passing by Vila Sassetti, acquired in 1885 by Victor Carlos Sassetti on the slope of Mouros Castle, designed by the architect Luigi Manini who later became the architect of Quinta da Regaleira. On this track from the Gardens back to Sintra, make sure you look up to spot the castle!

At the end of the day the participants will get the transfer back to Cascais.

The program ends here, but if you want to keep traveling with us we offer an extra night in Cascais for 120€.
