What you can expect

We will pick you up from Lisbon and after crossing Lisbon's old bridge we will drive to Fonte da Telha Beach (considered the best Urban Beach of Europe), home to an old fishing village.

You will learn about the fisherman's traditional way of life and different fishing techniques on a beach surrounded by cliffs and pine forests.

Later on, we will travel along the coast to the Arrábida Mountain Range where you can see the breathtaking views of the Sado estuary, which is listed as one of the most beautiful bays of the world.

Driving down the Arrábida Mountain you will arrive at the city of Setúbal to visit the Livramento Market (established in 1930). This market was considered in June/2015 by USA Today Travel (Food & Wine), as one of the best fish markets of the world.

The market’s distinctive tiled walls are called “Azulejos”. Comprised of 5,700 decorative tile pieces, the wall panels measure about 1,259 square feet and depict scenes of everyday local activities such as fishing and farming.

You will see an assortment of local seafood laid out on counters and get to know how fish actually look like! Sardines are a favorite at the market. According to the Portuguese National Tourist Office, 13 sardines are eaten per second in Portugal during the month of June.

To end your experience, and before heading back to Lisbon, you will lunch at a typical family run fisherman´s restaurant where you will eat a delicious and traditional Mediterranean meal.

Come with us into this beautiful and traditional excursion into the life of a fishermen!

Because of one of my hobbies, I got to know Portugal inside out, literally “off the beaten track”. This led me to organize tours with friends and family, taking them to places of extreme beauty that aren't normally seen. I will share with you all the places, people and culture I know and love.

All our private tours are made in order to keep you off “the beaten tracks”. This means that we will take you to all the places that a traveller obviously shouldn't miss out on, but at the same time away from the usual touristic hustle, sharing with you all the places, people and culture we know and love."
