Detailed Description

Steeped in history and covered by luscious landscapes, Portugal is an enigmatic nation that ignites inspiration and awe within the hearts of all who visit. From charming fishing villages and world-famous surf spots to large cities like Porto and Lisbon, this luxurious, 14-day excursion invites you to explore the beauty and allure of this special country.

Your vacation will begin by spending a few days in Porto, where your first evening will be spent aboard a state-of-the-art vessel. During your cruise, you will glide down the river and witness the city’s iconic six bridges. Day two will find you venturing on a private walking tour of Porto’s architectural wonders. Upon finishing your tour, you will have the exciting opportunity to craft your very own Azulejo tile under the tutelage of an expert craftsman. The night will end on a high note as you attend a live Fado performance that will be paired with a lovely, al fresco dinner. Afterward, you can look forward to enjoying a luxurious wine tour of the Douro Valley with an expert sommelier.

Aveiro will be your next destination, and here, you will journey to a picturesque farm in the countryside, where you will be provided with the opportunity to take part in an orange harvest. Afterward, you will explore the charming town itself on a private walking tour. Following in the footsteps of the Knights Templar will be on your agenda for day five, and you will travel to Tomar to step back in time during a private, historical tour. Nazare and Obidos will welcome you on day six with their spectacular, historical gems, rustic charm, and medieval wonders.

After waking up in Nazare on day seven, you will have a day of discovering its surrounding natural wonders, including caves and sparkling springs. You will then make your way to Ericeira, where you will explore Mafra before enjoying a private surf session at sunset with a local pro. Following your surfing session will be an overnight jaunt to the fairytale world of Sintra before venturing to the capital of Lisbon.

Shortly after arriving in Lisbon, an exhilarating scavenger hunt will provide you with a unique and exciting way to sightsee before embarking on a prestigious dinner cruise. The following morning, you will transfer to Lisbon’s countryside, where you will learn how to bake homemade bread with a local baker inside a windmill.

Evora will welcome you next, and here, you will become a winemaker for the day, during which, you will be provided with the incredible opportunity to create your own blend of wine. Tavira will be your final stop, where an outdoor trek amid the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve will allow you to reconnect with nature.

Each night you will stay in luxurious accommodations and be absolutely cared for with private transfers to and from specified destinations and airports.
