Today you will arrive in Cascais to start on your hiking route along the Sintra Coast. You will need to take your transfer which is included from Lisbon Airport to your first accommodation.

From Playa Guincho to Azóia

Today you will have a transfer included, which will be very short, from your hotel to Guincho Beach, where you will start walking. During your day you will have a lot of time to discover and explore this beach thanks to the short and very simple route.

You will begin to walk across the dunes and then cross over the beach. You will continue walking through a valley that surrounds the coast, until you reach the old Convent of San Saturnino, once a sacred place that currently serves as accommodation.


Circular route in Azóia

Today you will go to the well-known 'Monte da Lua', (or 'Moon Hill'), where you will delight in its green trails and its old mansions, including Chalet da Condessa or Vila Sassetti.

You will arrive at the Peninha Sanctuary, inside the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, from where you will start to descend, enjoying the view of stunning Atlantic Ocean trails, until you return to your accommodation.

From the beginning of your day, you will have the opportunity to observe the cliffs that you will pass over today. You will reach Cape Roca, the most westerly point of the European continent.

From Colares to Sintra

Your destination today, the city of Sintra, was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1995.

Its interior also has a very particular decoration.
