What you'll do
We'll hop on our UMM 4x4 historical vehicle and explore the south bay of Lisbon, across the river Tagus. Starting in the old town of Almada, we'll visit the Cristo Rei monument, and I'll show you a natural belvedere only locals know. We will then be heading to the Caparica fossil cliff for some off-road action and the best natural landscapes. We will visit some military ruins nearby that almost no one knows about... And there you'll have the best views of Lisbon ever! Down the hill we'll find Trafaria, a town that grew from a small fishing community and we'll stop for a special aperitif there, so you can have a taste of our great local wine and 'petiscos', the Portuguese tapas. Our last stop is a very traditional and picturesque fishing village called Cova do Vapor, where Tagus meets the ocean. After showing you this special place it will be around lunch time, so I'll drop you off back in Trafaria, where you can find the best local restaurants. There you have a boat station back to central Lisbon. It'll be lots of fun!
Hi! I'm Guilherme and I know every special corner of the Caparica and Almada region, where I'm proud to have been born and raised. I'm delighted to show that this region is so much more than the main beach destination of Lisbon, and that's already a huge thing by itself! We'll have the ultimate Portuguese historical 4x4 vehicle to lead you in this great adventure as well as doing what I've been doing for a long time now: give you an unique insight of the best secret spots and main sites in this area, that mingles dazzling natural sights and rich cultural and historical places perfectly together.
Light snacks during the ride and some Portuguese tapas "petiscos" when we stop for the appetizer.
Good old H2O during the tour and a glass of local wine, from the Setúbal peninsula, when we stop for the appetizer.
