Trip Info

Did you know that it’s possible to see wild bottlenose dolphins not far from Lisbon?

Heading south from Lisbon, you will discover one of the 10 most beautiful bays in the world, explore a natural park and a region very well known for its wines and cheese.

In Setúbal you’ll board a fully restored salt galleon for a relaxing and enjoyable cruise in the Sado Estuary, where you’ll learn about the resident bottlenose dolphins and hopefully be able to observe wild dolphins in their natural environment. The duration of the cruise takes about 2 to 3 hours.

See the natural reserve of Arrábida, take in the stunning views, and learn about the area’s history and gastronomy. You’ll see the Arrábida Convent and discover some important historical sites before returning to the old city center of Setúbal.

Before returning to Lisbon, you’ll stop to taste special liqueurs, made according to a 400-year-old recipe and that can only be found in this region. Besides this you will also be able to taste the regional Azeitão cheese, homemade bread and different sweets that you have probably never tried.
