What you'll do
We'll ride e-bikes through the fishermen villages and beaches of the Costa da Caparica region, soaking up the sun and charm along the way. Depending on the weather and terrain conditions, we also visit the little countryside of this area, where we have the largest view to Lisbon (and not only) and sometimes meet more than 500 sheep along the way. Surprisingly, this is a perspective and route little-known among Portuguese people and even for some locals. The departure point is Trafaria, a very isolated fishing village located in about 20-minute boat trip from Lisbon. It´s maybe the place with the best view to the entire Lisbon and a place where you live with more quality. There you live the sea and not the city vibe. Along the way, we'll also visit Costa da Caparica and see elements of Portugal's seaside fishing, nature, surf and "something" unforgettable and essential: the locals, sometimes sharing moments of their land and of their own there. The highlights of every single experience are always based on the improvisation with the luck of be talking and meeting some natives with stories to share. Get ready to enjoy a very different and responsible way of doing tourism in Lisbon!
To develop this concept of community-based tourism we really need locals. This business would never be possible without the help of my father and some very special local friends interested in this way of doing tourism. Flávio and André are our super local community-guides. Both native of this region, they are the best friends of our initiative and the most passionate about this land and people. Flávio is born and raised in Trafaria and was working in England! Now he is doing a bit of everything and working with us in this project: he is precious! André is our sweet nurse! Borned and raised in Caparica, he is now trying to change something in his life. As a big friend and local guide of us, the tourism is might be now pushing him to a new age. Me? I am simple social creative passionate about this area and its people.

Where you'll be
We'll meet in Trafaria, a very small fishing village separated from Belém by the tagus river. There you have the best views to Lisbon and the colored Cova do Vapor, a lovely and hidden fishing community. From Trafaria we will cycle to Costa da Caparica, the most famous beach and surf area of Lisbon. There you have another perspective of what can be living next to the sea with a very interesting cultural heritage of fisheries and fishermen.
