Full description

Take a trip from Lisbon to Setúbal for a day of fun in the sun and the sea. Dive into the town's history and seafaring heritage on a walking tour. Take a ferry ride to the Troia Peninsula dotted with pine forested sand dunes. Then, in Comporta, mount your horse and gallop off to the beach.

Explore Setúbal, the most important center of Portugal's fishing industry. Visit the bustling fish market of  Mercado do Livramento, the historic center, the Monastery of Jesus, and the São Filipe Fortress where you can soak in one of the most breathtaking panoramic views of the city. Next, head towards Comporta on a 25-minute ferry ride, admiring the beauty of the Troia's coast, one of the world’s longest uninterrupted stretches of sand, and keep your eye peeled for dolphins. Upon arrival in Comporta, a protected natural reserve suspended between sea and rice fields, get ready for horseback riding with instructions from your guide. Ride your horse across rice paddies, pine forests, and sand dunes until you reach the Atlantic coast. At the end of the tour, return to the center of Lisbon in a comfortable minibus. Before bidding farewell to your guide, get recommendations on things to do during the rest of your stay in Lisbon.

The horseback riding in Comporta is SO NICE, the color of the water is breathtaking! And the whole experience is worth your time, I recommend it. It was our second time in Lisbon and we would like to try something new, thank you Flavio for the amazing time we had in Portugal!

Thank to our guide Artur, the day was so excellent and impressive! The market visit in Setubal was very interesting, then got on a ferry and cruised along the coast and went over to Conporta where we had a horse riding to the beach. The view of the blue ocean from horse back was just fabulous! With a small cozy international group, I really enjoyed the day. Just one note, the tour starts in front of the hotel, not where the tour buses are parked.
