On this tour, you leave behind Lisbon to venture into an immersive experience in the natural wonders south of the capital. The main pretext of this tour is to get to know what has been considered one of the best Fish Markets in the world - the Setúbal Fish Market. On the way we visit magnificent places such as the Cristo Rei Belvedere, the fishing port and the Bay of Setúbal, the heights of the Arrábida Mountains with breathtaking views over the ocean, and one of the main medieval castles in the vicinity of Lisbon - Palmela Castle. The city of Setúbal is located on the edge of the ocean and the Sado River where the confluence of waters forms a beautiful bay where a colony of dolphins lives. During your visit to the bustling market, besides seeing more varied and abundant species of fish and seafood caught in the ocean, you can also enjoy many other regional products such as cheeses, wines, fruits, bread, vegetables, etc. In one of the many restaurants located near the fishing port you can also enjoy a tasty grilled fish lunch. Later, at a beautiful viewpoint overlooking the ocean, I will invite you to have a coffee on a terrace overlooking the ocean and visit an old military fort from the 17th century to learn about its history. From there you will have another perspective of the fishing port as well as the bay of Setubal, classified by Unesco as one of the most beautiful bays in the world. Before returning to Lisbon we will still have time to visit the medieval castle of Palmela overlooking the plains of the Alentejo Region.

What people are saying about Setubal

I did this hike with Andre from Look around tours who pointed out the various vegetation of the area including the infamous cork trees. The trail itself was easy to medium for me with about 2.2km of a flat gravel road and then a gradual uphill climb of 1.5km to the peak of the Arabdida mountain. About 800m of the climb is a bit steep and you needed to climb cautiously. The view at the top was breathtaking. Total time to complete the hike was 3:23hrs which included rest breaks along the way. I also had the opportunity to visit the Sesimbra coastal quaint town with beautiful beaches and very friendly people. The main cons for me for this hike was the time of day the hike was done which was in the midday heat and the longer than expected waiting time at Sesimbra for my pickup for my drive back to my hotel. Other than that the experience was good and I got some great pics.

Superb landscapes steeped in history and legends. Our guide Christina was exciting and passionate. She was able to share her passion with us in almost perfect French. If we had known Christina and her team at the start of our stay, we would have taken all our services from vertente natural. We recommend without any hesitation... Thank you for everything...

Our guide, Henrique was extremely knowledgeable about Portuguese history and we had a lot of fun at the market, the castle, and the fort. We appreciated that there were stops to rest such as for lunch, coffee, and drinks.
