Trip Overview

CMC has offered Adventure Travel trips for over 40 years, but NEVER to Portugal. It’s time to visit this land of fabulous cultural and historical sites, wonderful hiking, ocean views, and spend time in Lisbon, one of Europe’s great capitol cities largely undiscovered by Americans.  Come to the land of expansive views, warm temperatures, friendly people, the unique music of Fado, and a European capitol with hills even better than San Francisco, with an uphill tram instead of cable cars. Great dining opportunities for the trail overnights as well as Lisbon. Seafood anyone?  Madeira wine anyone (from the Portuguese island of the same name)? Also, Conde Nast Traveler has recognized Cascais as a Top Ten place to retire.

Accommodations

We’ll use a variety of 3 star and 4 star lodgings, plus guest houses and old convents. Lodging will be double occupancy, two beds per room, en-suite.

Activities / Difficulty

Light-moderate hiking at B/C level. Lot of up and down at a lower elevation, often near sea level. Touring numerous cultural sites along the way of the outing, as well as more walking and site visits in Lisbon. The city does have a modern Metro (subway) system that is easy to learn.
