COACH ITINERARY

DAY 1: LISBON

Meeting in the luscious city of Lisbon we'll admire the Gothic glamour, winding cobbled streets, gorgeous cathedrals and scenic views. But the best way to explore this gastronomic capital is through taste, and we'll bond today over a visit to the Time Out food markets, sampling sardines and bruschetta, Moroccan chicken skewers, duck croquettes and mushroom delicacies, all washed down with beer and the Lisbon speciality: green wine. Afterwards, maybe go for a glass of port in the Bairro Alto and watch the sunset.
 
STAY: 3/4 Star Hotel (or similar)
 
INCLUDED EXPERIENCES:
Visit Lisbon's famous food markets

DAY 2: LISBON TO PORTO VIA FATIMA AND COIMBRA

Lisbon: See ya, Lisbon. We'll never forget your culinary and cultural charms.
Fatima:En-route to Porto we've got a few special stopovers, such as the sacred place of miracles: Fatima. Said to be the site where the Virgin Mary appeared to peasant children, Fatima attracts 6 million people a year. Today there are two ginormous basilicas to mark the site.
Coimbra: This lively city is bursting at the seams with historical monuments. It's home to Portugal's oldest university, and when we stop for lunch we'll fall in love with the old stone walls and tumbling terraces of pastel coloured buildings.
Porto: Arriving in Porto we'll enjoy a delicious Portuguese dinner tonight, with a day of exploration awaiting us tomorrow.
 
STAY: 3/4 Star Hotel (or similar)
 
INCLUDED EXPERIENCES:
Delicious Portuguese Dinner
Visit the moving religious site of Fatima
Visit the preserved medieval old town of Coimbra

DAY 3: PORTO

Porto is a spectacular city, but it's also very hilly. An optional E-bike tour has the solution, allowing you to breeze through Porto’s iconic sites with the help of a hill-conquering engine when you need that extra push (it’s not cheating if you pretend to pedal and put on your most determined face). You'll have the chance to explore the city in your free time, sampling port and wondering the picturesque coastline, before an optional EatWith experience this evening. This brings you into the homes of locals, who host and cook for you for a uniquely authentic dining experience. As well as sampling a delicious array of traditional Portuguese food, you'll sample some port, and hear stories from your hosts about their lives in this spellbinding city.

DAY 4: PORTO TO SANTA CRUZ VIA AVEIRO TO OBIDOS

Porto: We're saying 'Tchau' to Porto today. After breakfast we're taking the coach towards Santa Cruz. 

Aveiro:This mini-Venice is a gorgeous town built on canals. We'll have an optional traditional boat tour to cruise the winding canals, admiring the colourful houses and learning about the area's history.

Obidos:Another stop for lunch lunch, another stunning historic old town to enjoy it in. Obidos will charm us with its whitewashed houses and ruddy blooms of flowers.
 
Santa Cruz:Located on the glorious shores of Ericeira, on Portugal’s West Coast, Noah’s Surf House has one motto “At Sea We're Home.” That’s why the entrance is on top of the sand, why the windows and balconies face the azure ocean, and why chilled surf culture informs everything they do. Whether you're looking to kick back or get involved with surfing, skating or yoga, this is so much more than just a place to stay.
 
STAY: 3/4 Star Hotel (or similar)
 
INCLUDED EXPERIENCES:
Visit canal city of Aveiro, Portugal's 'mini-Venice'
Visit the charming old town of Obidos
FREE TIME ADD-ONS:
Traditional Canal boat ride

DAY 5: SANTA CRUZ

Portugal’s west coast is one of the best spots in Europe to find perfect surfing conditions for all abilities, and has so many golden beaches that overcrowding never becomes a problem. Take one of Noah’s surfing classes and you'll be using the best gear on the market while being trained up by instructors with more than 15 years of experience, so no matter your skill level, you'll be mastering the waves in no time. If want to hit the waves in a different way, Stand Up Paddle Boarding, or SUP might be for you. It’s just you, your big board and an oar, and as well as being an incredible core strength workout, it’s a fun and unique way to explore the glorious med from an upright perspective. Yoga is an option if you're looking for an activity that is a bit more grounded, or you can simply kick back with a beer and enjoy the sound of the waves gently lapping against the shore.

DAY 6: SANTA CRUZ TO LAGOS VIA EVORA

Santa Cruz: Noah's Surf House - you've been a dream. It's time to drag ourselves away this morning as we head to Lagos.
 
Evora: Another trip to the past as we head inside the 14th century walls of Evora, home to grandiose medieval cathedrals, roman baths and a spectacular town square. After wondering the cobbled streets we'll head on towards Lagos.
 
Lagos: This picture perfect port town retains Evora's quaint cobbled lanes but adds a whole bunch of stunning beaches.

DAY 8: LAGOS to LISBON

Lagos: After breakfast, we have a short drive from Lagos back to Lisbon today. See ya Lagos, thanks for the good times!
 
Lisbon: Here in Lisbon we'll enjoy more time to explore this fascinating capital with a Street art tour of the Cascais district. Hosted by local residents, this tour showcases the culture of a neighbourhood shaking off old perceptions by creating an urban art gallery unlike anywhere in the world. Later, we'll enjoy an optional farewell feast  - the perfect chance to reflect on how much we've fallen in love with Portugal, and say our sad goodbyes.
