Famous for its beautiful architecture, buzzing nightlife and dynamic food scene, Lisbon is an unmissable stop on your active holiday in Portugal.

Wander Lisbon’s cobbled backstreets and tree-lined boulevards, admire the handsome cityscape of terracotta-roofed, pastel-painted buildings and explore the castles, cathedrals and monasteries of one of history’s most powerful merchant empires. To look after your inner self, head to a traditional ‘tasca’ for a hearty meal or go on a quest to find the best ‘pastel de nata’ in town.

Leave Lisbon on foot and walk out through riverside villages or the rugged coastline to the famous Pena Palace in Sintra or the beautiful historic town of Tomar. The Lisbon region is also home to the Roman ruins of Conimbriga, the historical university city of Coimbra, and a series of ancient castles.

Discover varied landscapes and World Heritage Listed treasures just outside the city limits—a gorgeous coast lined with golden beaches, dramatic cliffs and world-class surf breaks, and a picturesque hinterland of fertile valleys and vineyards, traditional villages, historic cities and ancient ruins.

Or tackle the Portuguese Camino and be one of the lucky few to complete this iconic pilgrimage trail in full.

Set at the mouth of the Targus River and encircled by seven steep hills, Portugal’s elegant capital makes an appealing base for your Iberian adventures. Take a look at our unique range of self-guided walking holidays in the Lisbon region and start planning your Portuguese journey!
