Coronavirus in Portugal

Hello Travelers,

During the last days, we have been receiving many emails and phone calls by clients worrying about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Portugal.

For your health and safety, Eco Trilha will be canceling all tours from March 13 to April 30, 2020. During this period, the museums, churches, palaces, and other attractions will be closed. If this situation changes, we will update the information here.

The safety and security of our travelers, staff, and partners is our priority, and this is a precautionary measure to protect our people at this time. We know it’s hard to believe, but this will pass.

We may not be able to travel at all for the next few months, but should we stop dreaming and planning? We do not think so! The most exciting destinations in Portugal, most alluring and fascinating sights, its most inspiring journeys are not going away. Stay at home and follow us on Facebook, Tiktok, and Instagram!

If, like us, you’re ready for your next trip. You may plan a trip now to look forward later this year or even in 2021. Don’t worry. We updated the cancellation policies on our website.

If you would rather wait and see how the next couple of months plays out, we understand that too.

Whatever your stance, our committed and knowledgeable team are here and ready to advise you, whenever you’re ready.

To better serve our guests, we have temporarily modified our opening hours based on the following:
Monday– Friday 9 am – 6 pm Western European Standard Time.

Please keep in touch and follow me on Instagram or Facebook as we navigate this challenging time together.

Thanks,
Eco Trilha Team

What do doctors recommend to reduce the risk of contracting Coronavirus?

  • Avoid contact with sick people.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Clean your hands often by washing them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60%-95% alcohol. Soap and water should be used if hands are visibly dirty.
    • It is especially important to clean hands after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose.
    • Supplies of hand sanitizer, tissues, and other hygiene products may be limited, so consider bringing them with you.
  • Avoid traveling if you are sick.

Should you purchase travel insurance?

Travel insurance is always a good idea.
If you purchased travel insurance before, you would be eligible for reimbursement for the amount we have not to be able to refund you should we have to cancel the trip due to the COVID-19 virus.
