HIKING THE NATURAL WONDERS
You really don’t have to go far out of Lisbon to find yourself in wilderness. Many of the more adventurous walks are unsigned and unmarked and many of the trails are dependent on being walked regularly; if they don’t they quickly get covered by foliage. They require a little effort to follow but are well worth it. All of these hikes require a good level of physical fitness.
HIKING TO REMOTE BEACHES
We offer alternatives that help you escape the crowds, parking hassles and the summer onshore winds. Four of the most stunning beaches are a walk away from the cape itself, which is an option for those who catch the bus from Cascais to Cabo da Roca. Although the access to most of the beaches is challenging with demanding cliff walks and steep trails, we believe the rewards will speak for themselves.
EARLY MORNING HIKES
HIKING FOR THE UNFIT :)
Having two protected nature parks on its doorstep, the Lisbon region has many hiking trails for you to enjoy. Even so, hiking, but for many of us, is emotionally and physically challenging. A walk in nature doesn't have to long and hard, instead turn to nature to soothe and heal. Spending more time in nature is good for you in both direct and subtle ways. It lowers your stress level, improves your health, and boosts your creativity.
HIKING IN ARRABIDA
The high sea cliffs and abundance of hills in the area around Lisbon give the landscapes plenty of opportunities for stunning vistas. The trail from the cliff tops down to the beaches are aparticular favourite with its wonderful views out over the golden sand
HISTORICAL WALKS + LUNCH
As the city of Lisbon is one of the oldest in the world, history is everywhere in the Lisbon region. Here are five alternative places with a sense of history. With its hilltop castle and many palaces, the ancient town of Sintra has recently seen a huge increase in visitors. Avoid the crowds and the traffic by walking the trail we have suggested
HIKING FOR THE ADVENTUROUS
You really don’t have to go far out of Lisbon to find yourself in wilderness. The trails we do require a little effort to follow but are well worth it
HIKING WITH CHILDREN
Finding time to go for a walk in nature is hugely beneficial, especially for children. Researchers have found that time in nature can improve your child’s happiness, learning, sleep and self-esteem. The Lisbon region has plenty of places to interact with nature in awe-inspiring locations.
CABO DA ROCA - COASTAL TRAILS
The walk follows the trail south of the Cabo da Roca monument and descends along a steep trail into the valley. Stopping above mainland Europe's last beach. Following the cliff trail, we pass Assentiz beach, impressive granite boulders at the Forte do Espinhaco and through the beautiful Ribeira do Louriçal.
The hike requires a good level of physical fitness and includes a published guide and insurance.
