    ITINERARY

    At mainland Europe’s western edge lies one of its lesser-known gems—a land of wild coasts, terraced vineyards, and historic cities whose cobbled streets tell a multitude of stories. Experience the beauty of Portugal as you trace the beaches and cliffs that hug the Atlantic shore, and trek through the verdant forests of Serra da Estrela Natural Park. Hike and kayak in the acclaimed Douro Valley wine region; explore charming villages; and round off your journey with a stirring performance of fado, the soul of Portuguese music.
