Hike & Wine Walks
Sintra is best explored on foot – but where to go?
Our Hike & Wine suggestions take you to wonderful, local, award winning special vineyards of our region, where you can enjoy a guided tour and a wine tasting at the end of your walk. Best yet, there is a perfect walk for everyone: there is a route for you, whether you wish to walk through the countryside, on the coast, or in the mountain. You can choose to walk just 5 kms or make it a day with a 15 km walk. Want to have lunch on the way? Also possible.
Following are some of our suggestions for you,
Through the mountain paths: Casa do Valle to Almoçageme and Casal Santa Maria or Adega Viuva Gomes, 13 kms. Or 5,5 kms if you start near Monserrate palace. There are nice little restaurants in the village for lunch or dinner.
From the Historic Center to the countryside of Janas: Casa do Valle to Quinta San Michel, 7.5 kms. Lunch options in the nearby village.
The classic Colares roundtrip wine route: 15 kms in the Colares region in the villages, on the coast and in the in the pine forest starting and finishing at the Adega Regional of Colares. You can take the historic tram or a bus from Casa do Valle to the starting point.
These walks are great for you alone or for a group activity!
