Imagine kings and queens in mountain-top palaces, a kaleidoscope of bright colours. Magical forests filled with fairies, hidden treasure, or even ghosts. Some kids grew up dreaming of fairy tales. But we didn’t have to imagine. Our hometown, Sintra, is a region filled with real life castles and mysterious legends. Join us as we explore this UNESCO World Heritage town known for its romantic architecture and landscaping. We’ll start the day with a visit to the magical Quinta da Regaleira, a palace and gardens filled with mystery, metaphors and underground tunnels. We’ll take in the view of all five palaces and the 8th-century Moorish Castle as we cruise around in one of our restored convertible UMM jeeps. We can take you off-road to epic lookouts and secret spots other visitors can’t reach. Next stop, lunch at a traditional Portuguese restaurant in a small village. Think fresh fish or tasty meat on the wood-fired grill and plenty of wine! After a quick cafezinho (coffee) we’ll get back on the road passing through dense forests to the 12th century Peninha Sanctuary. Built 500 metres above sea level, from here you’ll take in 360-degree views of the forest, the Atlantic Ocean, Lisbon, Sintra and Cascais. The day finishes with a visit to Pena Palace, the red-and-yellow Disney-like castle that sits atop Sintra’s second highest peak.
Olá, we’re FlaminGO Experiences! As little kids exploring their wild streaks we left no stone unturned in our magical hometown Sintra. Our mums complained when we came home dirty, tired and covered in cuts and bruises, but the mountains and coast were – and still are – our playground. Now we know almost every hidden secret and we’ve turned our passion for adventure, storytelling and vintage jeeps into our jobs. Between castles and the coastline we like to go beyond ordinary – driving off-road, eating local sweets, and snapping Polaroids at the beach. If you’re ready for one of the coolest days of your life (2000+ 5-star reviews back that up) – let’s GO!
