What you'll do

In one afternoon you can enjoy the best of Portugal’s stunning coastline, taste local Portuguese food and wine and go off-road in Sintra’s mysterious forests. Join us to watch the sun set into the sea with sand between your toes, salty hair and wine in one hand. We’ll pick you up in one of our legendary convertible jeeps and take a brief look at Sintra’s best sights and palaces before hitting our favourite forest tracks. These off-road, unmarked trails pop out at the westernmost point of Europe, Cabo da Roca. Our secret beach is a short hike away. The dirt trail twists along a steep route but it takes only 30 minutes to get down to the sand. Bring proper shoes for this part! Flip flops/thongs/jandals/foot wedgies won’t make the cut. Once we reach the soft, golden sand – just relax. We’ll set up a picnic spread of traditional Portuguese “petiscos” (that’s our word for tapas) stacked full of cheese, chouriço (chorizo), bread and other snacks. You can swim in the salty ocean, kick a ball on the sand, or just sit back with a few glasses of local wine. You might have 99 problems, but a beach ain’t one. Since it is only a half day, you can combine it with one of our morning cultural journeys, which explore UNESCO World Heritage Sintra palaces and more. *** It's a level 4 Hike, it can be challenging at some points. For safety reasons this experience may be cancelled due to weather"

Your hosts

Olá, we’re FlaminGO Experiences! As little kids exploring their wild streaks we left no stone unturned in our magical hometown Sintra. Our mums complained when we came home dirty, tired and covered in cuts and bruises, but the mountains and coast were – and still are – our playground. Now we know almost every hidden secret and we’ve turned our passion for adventure, storytelling and vintage jeeps into our jobs. Between castles and the coastline we like to go beyond ordinary – driving off-road, eating local sweets, and snapping Polaroids at the beach. If you’re ready for one of the coolest days of your life (2000+ 5-star reviews back that up) – let’s GO!

Where you'll be

We’ll explore wild coastline, secret forest paths and century-old roads just 30 minutes from downtown Lisbon. We’ll drive through Sintra, a UNESCO World Heritage area, before heading off-road through the forest, emerging at the westernmost point on mainland Europe, Cabo da Roca. Near here we’ll hike down to a beautiful secret beach for sunset over the ocean. We’ll finish the day driving along the coast at golden hour, dropping you off in Cascais.
