The best ride of my life! We rode through the national park to a great vantage point with a view of the entire coast and then went back to the beach. We galloped and trotted several times. The guide always asked if everything was ok and made a lot of videos and photos. You could enjoy the sunset during the entire ride. That was an experience for the heart. I highly recommend it.

Very humorous guide who brought us closer to the culture, the country and the history of Portugal in an entertaining way. There were meat dishes typical of the mountain region, including wild boar and seasonal vegetables. The tour is definitely to be recommended! Thanks for the great organization!

Coasteering was great! It felt like a true adventure in a place that’s probably not unlike paradise. Jim made me feel safe while still getting me out of my comfort zone. Wouldn’t want to have missed this experience! Definitely one of the highlights of my trip.
