Detailed description

Through the Sintra-Cascais Nature Park to the summer residence of the Portuguese Kings

With the Jeep Safari in Portugal at Sintra and Sintra Jeep & Surf you discover Sintra, the former summer residence of the Portuguese kings, which belongs to the world cultural heritage of Unesco and is located just outside Lisbon. You can visit the Pena Palace and the historic centre. At the same time you get to know the enchanting landscape of Portugal, the barren to luxuriant vegetation and the comparatively mild Mediterranean climate. You drive through nature on winding paths and small hills in the Landrover Defender.

Your jeep safari in Portugal takes you through the Sintra Cascais Nature Park. It is one of the 13 nature parks in Portugal. It was first designated a nature park by the Portuguese government in 1994 and has also been a nature reserve since 1981. Its area is approximately 145 km² and includes the Serra de Sintra mountain range. It extends to the coast and to Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of continental Europe, which you will also visit. The Sintra-Cascais Nature Park is 25 km from Lisbon and its many historical and natural sites and attractions are ideal to explore by jeep.

After the Jeep Safari in Portugal you will go on a search for noble sea creatures. Watch dolphins in their natural habitat! The area at the mouth of the river Sado is known as a natural habitat for dolphins (bottlenose dolphins) who use the conditions there for food, rest and socializing. During this activity, many other animals can also be observed - such as common dolphins or minke whales. The boat trip is carried out with an exceptional catamaran, which brings them close to the marine mammals.


Valid on the reserved day or for 12 months after date of purchase if no date has been selected. You will receive the tour operator's details with the purchased ticket. Attention: reservation is required! The reservation can be made through sunbonoo as part of the booking process or later by contacting the tour operator directly via phone or email.

Good combination

There was surfing at the start of the tour. I have never done it, can probably be fun, but in the short time it did not really work. The tour afterwards was an absolute highlight of our vacation. Great views in a great landscape!

Gute Kombination

Zum Start der Tour stand Surfen an. Habe ich noch nie gemacht, kann wahrscheinlich Spass machen, aber in der kurzen Zeit klappte es noch nicht so richtig. Die Tour danach war aber ein absolutes Highlight unseres Urlaubs. Tolle Ausblicke in einer großartigen Landschaft!

Very varied

A great day for the family. The children had a lot of fun and the dolphins were a highlight. My husband would have loved to drive himself.

Sehr abwechslungsreich

Ein toller Tag für die Familie. Den Kindern hat es sehr viel Spaß gemacht und die Delfine waren ein Highlight. Mein Mann wäre aber gerne selbst gefahren.
