    1. Alentejo: Cork Forest Safari with Optional Lunch

    The farm you will visit is a paradise for walkers, ramblers and wine lovers. Imagine exploring this world of rolling hills, cork forests, olive groves and vineyards in a landscape occasionally broken by a medieval fortress or an abandoned chapel. For six generations, the family owners have made a living on the 1,400 acre estate in the Alentejo by sustainably managing cork forests, rearing sheep and making fine wines. You're invited you to join to share the joy of their lives and see the beauty of the surrounding countryside. Nature-lovers and birdwatchers will not be disappointed. With luck, you might see or come across an Egyptian mongoose, a bustard, a wild boar,  a hoopoe, a bee-eater, a booted eagle or many more species.

What people are saying about Evora

Outstanding for anyone that likes wine!

We’ve been on many wine tours, but this one about the cork trees used to seal all of the wine bottles is tops (no pun intended)! We got to hear about the cork trees, cost and care of production, as well as need to diversify the large cork forest such as the one we saw. It gives you a new respect for what we used to seal our wine bottles and the harmful impact of fad-sealers and word-of-mouth. A great tour from a very knowledgeable person. Long live the cork trees and farmers!

Wonderful immersion into rural Portugal. Our guide, Antonio, was tremendous. Knowledgeable about the land and cork growing, the trees, the souls, the problems, the processing, and the history. He also explained the farming of grapes, and how fabulously used, but not abused the land is. Bees, pigs, cows, assist the farmer, pine nuts and acorns as well as grapes and cork are grown on the land. Such a great tour. Highly recommend

Well Worth It

A fascinating look at how cork is produced and harvested. If you've ever opened a bottle of wine, and wondered just where that cork comes from, this is your answer!

Antonio very knowledgable, beautiful scenery and great lunch; well worth the price.
