What you'll do
We will meet at Sintra train station and discover Sintra atmosphere hiking, far away from busy tourist tours. Our trail will lead us through the Garden of Liberty, we will passed by Hans Christian Andersen former house and hike the Serra through the forest to reach the Moorish castle that we will visit. We will get astonishing views over all the "Serra" towards the Atlantic Ocean and the Pena Palace. We will go down admiring the climbing rocks of the Penedo da Amizade (literally Friendship Rock). We will wander through the gardens of Villa Sassetti before we reach the tiny streets of Sintra. Let´s hike!
I am French, I´ve been living in Portugal for almost 20 years. I´m passionate about outdoor sports in great nature environments. That´s why I love Sintra so much. I love guiding people like you for hiking, mountain biking, kayaking and stand up paddling. I speak French, English, Portuguese, Dutch fluently and do my best in German and Spanish and enjoy meeting new cultures. In case I´m kayaking or biking with other guests that day, my colleague Raquel will take care of you. She also lives in Sintra and guides all year long with me at BORK Kayak & Outdoor centre, the outdoor company that I run.
