Camping Tour South

A camping safari through the South of Portugal

During this scheduled, safari-style mobile-camping tour we are going to explore the South of Portugal. The Alentejo region is more rural and seasonal. It is sun, music, sea and landscapes. Here we visit the Natural Park of Arrábida, Évora and the medieval town of Reguengos de Monsaraz, among others.

Across the Algarve, we feel as though we are passing through an area full of different traditions, unchanged for many centuries. With a Mediterranean climate, it has some of Europe's most beautiful beaches, from where we can admire the rocky coastline. Our journey takes us to Aljezur (the 'untouched' Algarve), the village of Sagres (where nature and sea meet history) and Cabanas de Tavira, near the Ria Formosa Natural Park – one of the best preserved parks in Europe.

Day 1

Lisbon Airport – Sesimbra (Charneca da Cotovia)

Greeting at the airport and transport to the Campsite Valbom in Charneca da Cotovia, located near the Village of Sesimbra. Located at the heart of a dense pine tree forest it has a privileged view over the “Serra da Arrábida” (declared a Natural Park since 1976). Sesimbra is a pretty fishing and resort town that is located on the southern side of the Setubal Peninsula, 40km south of Lisbon.
Dinner at campsite.

Day 2

Sesimbra – Serra da Arrábida – Évora – Évoramonte

The Natural Park of Arrábida is a beautiful protected area with its many rare species. We continue our journey to Évora, a delightful Portuguese city that lies in the heart of the Alentejo regiobn and it is a museum sightseeing city with a vast historical and cultural wealth.
