About Us

We offer original, authentic, and sustainable tours.

We include the best wines and Portuguese cuisine, and our tours always have direct contact with the natural and rural environment.

The company Eco Trilha (Eco-Trails) is a receptive tour operator, established in 2013, which specializes in eco-tours and customized group tours in Portugal.

Eco Trilha’s primary mission is to showcase its beautiful country for our visitors through all possible senses: taste, sound, sight, smell, and touch. But we know that relationships are necessary experiences, so we also facilitate engaging cultural exchanges with Portuguese people for the most authentic visit.

Our featured destinations, with a rich heritage of history and culture, are mainly Lisbon, Sintra, Óbidos, Porto, Braga, Guimarães, Arcos de Valdevez, and Póvoa de Varzim. Other villages and townships may be included in any itinerary based on special tours and customization options.

We offer custom planning for groups of two or more and will curate thematic packages for large groups of travelers that may be searching for a unique type of vacation. Exclusive and exceptional experiences are our aim.

We like to emphasize culture, gastronomy, nature, urban adventures, active holidays, as well as excursions in rural areas such as the Douro Valley and Portugal’s National Parks. Our clients’ wishes and needs are our priority when it comes to planning an itinerary.
