Excellent experience with Portugal Nature Trails. From the beginning communications and reservations with Sophia, to the final ride to the airport PNT exceeded my expeditions. All of our accommodations were wonderful. The bikes they provided did a great job for us. Best of all was the helpful and friendly Francisco! Highly recommended!

Just completed 7 days of the Fishermen's Way from Porto Covo to Odexeixe. Entire trip plus transfers from/to Lisbon arranged and executed perfectly by Sofia and team at Portugal Nature Trails. Inns / BBs were all wonderful. Transfers and briefing from Filipe and Francisco were delightful and thorough. PNT has covered every detail. I should add PNT's supplied GPS tracks... More

Just returned from a 7 day self guided hiking tour along the Rota Vicentina with Portugal Nature Trails. Very professional, supportive tour company that provided transfers from and to Lisbon, accurate GPS co-ordinates of the route, restaurant suggestions and great accommodations (including very nice small rural hotels often with pools). We had no worries and could just relax, enjoy the... More

We have just completed the 9 day self guided cycling tour from Sesimbra to Sagres. Definitely recommend the trip with beautiful coastal scenery, interesting villages and a variety of routes on country roads and tracks in national parks. The bikes and equipment were excellent and the people at Portugal Nature Trails very helpful.

My 18 year old son and I did the Atlantic West Coast and Sintra Tour. Portugal Nature Trails did an excellent job of organizing the trip, supporting us, and modifying the tour at our request. The mix of really hard days and easier days was perfect. The accommodations they arranged were well located and most helpful. We really appreciated the... More

Our party of 6 (5 family members plus one adult friend) enjoyed 7 days of cycling in Portugal and Spain on the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. Our guides (Filipe and Helder) were always prepared and attentive. They were supportive and friendly without being intrusive. Finally, they were wonderful representatives and ambassadors of the Portuguese culture. One of our best... More

I would do this trip again. The accommodations are great and the route takes you through a variety of beautiful areas from the sea to the mountains. The trails can be rugged in areas so wear light weight hiking books. Your feet will thank you. One or two trekking sticks make the steep downhills much easier as well. You will... More

For bicycle enthusiasts who want a moderate challenge (250 miles in 6 days) that includes dramatic scenery & sparkling beaches every day - this is the vacation for you. We prefer to travel solo without an organized group. Portugal Nature Trails provided excellent bicycles and GPS with detailed routes so that we could manage our own bike ride. Four of... More
