    Our Hiking Tours in Portugal

Discover Old World Charm and Natural Beauty: Portugal Tours

Nestled between Spain and the Atlantic Ocean with island communities off its shores, Portugal offers abundant seafood, a majestic coastline, and warm hospitality.

Portugal’s rich cultural tapestry—woven by a multitude of past conquerors, including the Visigoths, Romans, Moors, and Christians—is still vividly present in Portuguese culture. From the vineyards of the Douro Valley to the mountainous interior and the volcanic landscape of the Azores, our Portugal hiking tours reveal this country’s stunning landscape and captivating history.

Embark on a journey through the heart of Portugal on our Porto and Douro Valley guided tour. You’ll explore the charming city of Porto, known for its port wine, and the serene pine-clad mountains of Serra da Estrela. Hike the hills overlooking the Douro River, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and indulge in the region’s famous olive oil and wine. Tour Lisbon, delve into its history, and immerse yourself in the soul-stirring melodies of Fado music. Along the way, you’ll discover Moorish citadels and ancient stone villages and experience the unique charm that makes this country in southern Europe so special.

If a walk on Portugal’s wild side calls to your inner adventurer, join us on our Azores Islands Explorer walking tour. With a mere 5% of its land developed, the Azores archipelago is a must-go destination for nature lovers. You’ll traverse the Azores’ most scenic and dynamic islands, hike along volcanic calderas, indulge in the region’s extensive culinary delights (including local wine), and immerse yourself in its unique island culture.

EXPLORE DIVERSE LANDSCAPES AND RICH HERITAGE ON A PORTUGAL WALKING TOUR

Our guided hiking tours of Portugal are unforgettable by design. Beautiful scenery is plentiful, along with opportunities to learn and delve into Portuguese history and culture. We keep our tour groups small (between 4-16 guests)—you’ll never get lost in the crowd and will quickly build new friendships with your fellow adventurers. An expert and a local, your tour guide offers an enriching insider perspective, an experience not unlike visiting a friend abroad. Together, you’ll visit highlights and hidden local favorites and build memories as sparkling as the turquoise seas off Porto Novo beach.

To elevate your experience, we include and curate many of your meals in Portugal. You’ll get to know Portuguese food and culture through a picnic with caldera views and light tapas and wine in the Douro River Valley to dinner at a Fado restaurant. However, you’ll also have free time to wander and taste independently.

Depending on the skill level of our Portugal guided tours, you’ll hike or walk anywhere from 3-5 hours to a full day. At night, you’ll stay at upscale boutique and luxury hotels chosen to enhance your experience and make you feel at home at each destination.

RESERVE EARLY!

Reserve your trip to Portugal soon—we limit our Europe tours to smaller groups than most tour group operators, and spots often fill months in advance.
