What you'll do

WILD BLUE**

We will start our adventure walk along a beautiful cove close to Sesimbra's marina. The initial part of the trail will be made by one of two routes, chosen according to your level of comfort with heights and physical dexterity, however, both offer an incredible landscape!

Route 1. More challenging and with greater exposure to heights, it allows you to walk on a natural balcony along an impressive cliff.

Route 2. Easier and without exposure to heights, it travels over the top of the cliff, allowing you to enjoy the beautiful landscape with greater tranquility.

After finishing this first section, we follow the trail that we call "Wild Blue"! By letting yourself marvel by this place you will soon understand why we gave it this name! Then, we will walk over the top of the cliffs, going up and down smoothly along its contours. Surrounded by "maquis", low Mediterranean vegetation, and in a genuinely wild landscape, where the mountains join with the sea, we continue the trail until the top of one of the most beautiful beaches in Portugal, Ribeira do Cavalo!

We finish the trail walking down to the beach with turquoise seawater. Here you will have time to relax and have fun. You can take a dive and also go snorkeling! An excellent way to also enjoy the underwater world before walking back through the sierra till the starting point!

I was born on a thunderstorm day and grew up in a village always looking at two things ... the mountains that appeared on the horizon and the clouds that were forming in the sky. These two things are now part of my daily life! I graduated in Meteorology and I work at the Portuguese Air Force since 2013. Mountains, like all nature, are my life, my passion and where I truly feel happy! I practice several nature sports and love to live new experiences. I am always thinking about the next adventure and I am passionate about the idea of visiting new places. I love meeting people and taking family and friends to live a little of my world. I have several nature sports courses and extensive experience as a guide, also working as a freelancer in nature tourism companies.

Where you'll be

The meeting point for our activity will be in the car park next to the roundabout at Marina de Sesimbra.

Our activity will have as its main protagonist the Serra da Arrábida Natural Park, where we will travel through trails along the cliffs that follow the coast of Sesimbra. A unique landscape in Portugal, dominated by the presence of limestone and the enormous wealth in flora.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 10 reviews.

Certainement le meilleur moment de mon séjour à Sesimbra ! Le parcours est magnifique. Solange m’a mis à l’aise très rapidement, nous avons fait le parcours un peu plus difficile, mais tellement unique et magique. Grâce à sa parfaite connaissance des lieux, sa patience et sa mise en confiance, je n’ai pas eu peur une seule seconde. La communication avec Solange a été parfaite de bout en bout : avant le séjour pour s’adapter à la météo et me proposer un retour alternatif ; pendant l’expérience en m’expliquant les differentes plantes et après l’expérience pour s’assurer que tout soit ok ! Je recommande fortement 😊

Experiência que superou bastante as expectativas! A Solange é espetacular, muito acessível e a simpatia em pessoa. Passámos uma manhã diferente, desafiadora e maravilhosa. Irei com certeza procurar a Solange quando quiser fazer outras atividades semelhantes. Aconselho muito!

The best experience I’ve had while traveling in Portugal. I have nothing more to say other than, if you don’t book this you made a mistake.

My family treated me to a day’s hiking with Solange for my birthday. It was the perfect day. Solange is a skilled, attentive and knowledgeable guide, committed to sharing her passion for this special corner of the world. Solange made our day really special. We said we wanted to be challenged, so she took us on an amazing path where we enjoyed fantastic views of the coast and were introduced to local plants and stories. Solange is kind and great with young people. She tuned in perfectly with my 11-year old, encouraging and inspiring her. Thank you Solange! We are dreaming of returning for more adventures. Polly

Yesterday’s experience with Solange was phenomenal. The views were more spectacular than pictures could ever display, and Solange was very knowledgeable . We did the hardest of the two options, and i would 100% recommend wearing hiking trainers as a ‘must’. It pushed us out of our comfort zone, but her patience and attention was unwavering. Beautiful day - what an adventure! We highly recommend!
