Nature & Adventure

One of the best things about choosing Lisbon and its region for your holidays is the easy access it provides to stunning and enchanting nature. With unique plant and animal species and perfect locations at which to observe them, discover the various parks and nature reserves where you can swap part of your holidays in the city for contact with nature. But if you prefer adrenaline to the bucolic, there are also many activities to choose in and around Lisbon. Mountain biking in Sintra or down the steep alleyways of Alfama, abseiling through nature or flying over a concert or festival, there are many extreme sports options available in the capital.
