Full description
Explore another side of the UNESCO World Heritage town of Sintra on a full-day action-packed adventure by 4x4. Go beyond the famous palaces and head off-road. Stop for a local pastry and sample some ‘ginja’ liqueur.  Board the restored ex-military vintage 4WD and tackle the wild terrain of the area. Follow unmarked secret trails to remote bits of nature and monuments that tourists don’t usually reach. Visit untouched lakes, ancient hilltop convents, and other hidden gems. Splash through puddles of mud as the 4x4 heads past house-sized boulders, pine forests, and giant ferns. Stop for lunch at a village restaurant then head for the coast. Take a stroll along the sand and take in the views of a beach surrounded by incredible soaring cliffs.

It was a wonderful experience, we arrived at Portela de Sintra station by train where Nelson welcomed us with his vehicle and took us to the heart of Sintra giving us lots of information about it; we had lunch in a very nice restaurant with typical Portuguese dishes, then we went to different places with a breathtaking view of the ocean, we made a stop in Cabo de roca and then we headed to Cascais passing by the most beautiful beaches of the coast. We were perfectly at ease thanks to the sympathy of Nelson and our travel companions from different countries around the world, an experience that I recommend to everyone. Nelson also offered us a shot of a local wine, a typical Portuguese dessert and a snapshot of a Polaroid to keep as a souvenir.
