Nestled between Spain and the Atlantic Ocean, Portugal offers abundant seafood and a majestic coastline. Traveling inland the diversity of Portugal’s landscape unfolds from the vineyards of the Douro Valley to the mountainous interior dotted with rustic villages, magical woodland and hilltop castles. With architecturally-stunning cities, and fewer crowds than its European neighbors, this romantic country brims with old-world charm.
Find the essence of Portugal on your hiking adventure with Boundless Journeys. We begin in Porto, the town that gave the country (and port wine) its name. The old town was built on the hills overlooking the Douro River, and today is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Traveling inland we discover the wine-draped enchanting Douro Valley and the pine-clad mountains of Serra da Estrela. We’ll hike through cobblestone villages where the smell of bread baking wafts through the air, indulge in wine tastings at local estates, and listen to soul-stirring Fado music. At weeks end, you will come to understand the true meaning of the Portuguese word saudade describing the intense longing towards the country and its people.
Our tours often fill months in advance, and our maximum group size is smaller than most tour operators’. Want to secure a spot on your preferred Boundless Journeys adventure? Reserve your trip now.
