GUIDED, SELF-GUIDED AND BESPOKE TRIPS
For people who value the benefits of having a local guide with the required permits and accreditations, we run guided trips across various parts of the country on set dates using our own routes. These trips are made with very small groups, allowing us to provide our guests with a fully tailor-made service and reduce our environmental footprint.
If you’re an independent type of traveller and you’re looking to have a trip with a customised program or on specific dates, we also organise self-guided trips for guests who like to do things at their own pace. For the ultimate level of personalisation, we do fully bespoke trips that meet the preferences and personal requirements of each guest or group.
Whatever the option, we take care of all the aspects of the trips to ensure our guests have a memorable experience. Based on our local knowledge of the country we can suggest the best routes, recommend the finest accommodations and take you to those secret places for the most genuine experiences, with a distinctive service that only someone local can provide.
In our tours, we privilege quality and environmentally friendly campsites, as wild camping is legally forbidden in Portugal. We also use charming B&B’s and small hotels with a “wow factor” where guests can enjoy the local culture and traditional cuisine with an added level of comfort.
Whether you want to join one of our guided trips or go for a tailor made experience, please contact us for more details about our offer.

MEDIA TRIPS AND LOCATION SCOUTING
After many years of driving Portugal’s back roads and off-road tracks, we have accumulated a deep knowledge of the country. We have thousands of kilometres of marked off-road tracks, and a vast portfolio of the most beautiful places, landscapes and monuments in the country, suitable for media productions.
Based on this experience, we can provide media professionals and companies with all the assistance they need for their projects, from the identification of the best locations to the logistical support required during the field work.
