Eco Trilha – Viagens e Turismo

About us

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

Eco Trilha’s main 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 key 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, Viana do Castelo, and Barcelos. 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.

Flights are not included in packages, but ground transportation, accommodations on multi-day packages, entrance fees and a tour guide are always included. Meal inclusion varies for each pre-packaged multi-day tour, please see full itinerary details for specifics. contact us.

O que os clientes dizem

  • Quero te dizer que foi muito bom te conhecer e a receção tua e de teu pai foram extremamente carinhosas. Isto tornou as minhas férias muito boas. Gostei muito e espero poder reencontrá-los em outra oportunidade.
    T. Pereira
  • Me surpreendeu a viagem organizada pela Eco Trilha por Lisboa, Braga e Porto. Além da parte cultural, visita a locais históricos de interesse a qualquer viajante, o plus a mais neste tour é que sempre tínhamos um local famoso por algum item da cozinha Portuguesa, quer os pastéis de Belém, quer um lugar recém inaugurado do bolinhos de bacalhau recheado com queijo da serra. Em todos os locais tínhamos sempre um pratinho original!
