Experience Carefully Curated Lifestyle Journeys
Each experience is built around aspects of the quintessential region, such as craftsmanship, art and architecture, nature and wildlife, and food and wine. Specialists — including chefs and chocolatiers, artisans and perfumers, and art historians and botanists — lead the tours and contribute their expert insight.
The intention is to offer a world of opportunities for seekers to discover or rediscover the country and its regions in a tailor-designed style with local experts, masters in their field, who will ensure they will experience the real and authentic and lesser-known aspects.
Many of the experiences allow seekers to work with master makers to create their own keepsake, whether that be a traditional tile, a bottle of wine or chocolate with a very distinctive hands-on aspect where we invite everybody to take an active part and become a real participant, getting involved in different aspects of life to create meaningful journeys of discovery.
Portugal is a territory yet to be truly discovered, where famous cities and renowned villages still conceal secret gems, unique places and as yet unknown perspectives.
Each itinerary sets the highest standards in terms of attention to details and immersive experiences, ensuring that the uniqueness of the destination, the people, and the culture are always central to the experience. We provide you with an insider’s perspective, allowing you to rediscover the places you thought you knew through unique and truly authentic experiences.
We give you the option to select from a broad range of activities to ensure your experience is customized to your liking, from the carefully selected boutique retreats to unique experiences, we ensure that your experience is a truly remarkable and inspiring journey.
Our carefully curated tours and experiences are designed to stimulate the senses and emphasize balance, a sense of place and most importantly, comfort and pleasure. So instead of hours just dedicated to sightseeing, our tours seek to balance and use activities to enhance the journey, giving you other opportunities to experience more and travel deeper. Our tours are designed to accommodate a range of varying physical abilities and most importantly, emphasize a sustainable, conscious and healthy lifestyle. Each activity is carefully selected to highlight the purpose of the journey, the surrounding natural environment and to create truly memorable experiences.
Worry not (it will only make it double, Bobby McFerrin Dixit)!. Everything will be set accordingly with your capabilities and desires. Want to ride the same circuit as the pros? No problem. Prefer a short walk, followed by a wine tasting, or a cooking demonstration and a spa treatment? We’ve got a plan for that, too. Trips are supported by vehicles that are there for weary travellers or to carry extra gear, purchases, etc.
