Hiking and Cycling Nature Trips in Portugal

Nature Tours offer greater hands-on exploration and insider access to Portugal’s wild side.

All with upgraded accommodations and more inclusions than other Portugal Nature Trails tours. These tours will fulfill all your fantasies about Portugal’s lush cliffs, cork trees, cascading waterfalls, picturesque streams and unique species that can be found nowhere else.

Portugal may be only a small country, but the variety of its landscapes and species is such that any trip, however short, is a pleasure of discovery.

From the towering mountains to the vast plains, from the wide sandy beaches with their gently rolling waves to the jagged coastline battered by rough seas, the country has a little of everything.

And there are also the islands of Madeira and Azores, oases of calm and tranquillity in the middle of the Atlantic, with lush vegetation, extinct volcanoes and caves full of natural carvings.

Wherever you are, the sun shines all year round, offering a mild climate that is ideal for enjoying nature and the outdoors. Take a look at our hiking and cycling tours below.

Some of these places are true sanctuaries that have been preserved intact since the beginning of time. And many are the habitat of rare species of flora and fauna that enjoy here the ideal conditions to develop.
