Adventure Tours in Portugal

Dreaming of Portugal conjures up romantic thoughts of sipping wine on cobblestone streets, with the constant lull of a guitar in the background. But Portugal is also a grand adventure destination as it contains a large section of the infamous Camino del Santiago. Planning a trip on this coveted route can be overwhelming, so we have curated guided and self-guided tours to make it easier. Choose from hiking or cycling through Portugal and check this item off your list. The self-guided tours listed below include accommodation each night, but allow you to stop where you please without a fixed daily schedule. With a rough outline of the trajectory, you can ride or walk with confidence and stop in authentic villages you wouldn’t normally see. A self-guided tour means you can follow your heart, but trust that you have support if you get lost.

The climate in this coastal European country is inviting year-round. While you hike or bike your preferred sections of the Camino, feel the warm sun and ocean breeze on your skin. The hiking and cycling tours will be challenging on Portugal’s hilly terrain, but you won’t mind so much as you discover the country’s vibrant atmosphere of colourful houses and friendly folk. You’ll instantly feel comfortable adapting to their lifestyle. They indulge in a slow eating culture, everything is fresh, and the olive oil is so fragrant. Enjoy Portuguese hospitality—and, of course, the ever-flowing wine!
