THIS JOURNEY IS FOR…

Those who want to “squeeze all the juice” out of Sintra. Drink up the best of the UNESCO World Heritage area and Sintra-Cascais Natural Park in just one day.

Climb aboard our vintage Portuguese 4x4s and tackle the best of the Sintra region. In just one day you’ll explore the mysterious Quinta da Regaleira and eat a traditional Portuguese lunch (with wine, of course) before cruising off-road through Sintra’s lush forests, to emerge at the seaside cliffs of mainland Europe’s westernmost point, Cabo da Roca.

Our restored ex-military 4WDs look cool as hell, sure, but they’re also the best way to tackle the terrain west of Lisbon, passing from hilltop castles to the sheer coastline of the UNESCO world heritage landscape. We take you to secret lookouts and hidden beaches no other tourists can reach, blasting music the whole time. In summer, feel the breeze whip through your hair as we bounce along off-road tracks with the roof off. In the cooler months we keep the roof on, turn the music up, splash through puddles of mud as we swerve past house-sized boulders, pine forests and giant ferns.

Our adventures are about the journey, not just the destination. This is why we love to go off-road, snap Polaroid pictures at the coast, play epic tunes all day long and give you the chance to taste Sintra’s traditional sweet “travesseiro” pastry and homemade “ginja” liqueur.

We want you to finish your day feeling like you really know the place. Join us for an unforgettable day of adventure, laughs and local legends.
