There’s a lot to say about the beautiful coastal town of Nazaré but the thing that everyone asks about is: “Have you ever seen someone surfing the big waves of Nazaré or is it just a myth?” No myth. We’ve seen it and you can see it too. The biggest wave ever surfed in the world was in Nazaré. At the Canyon as it is commonly known. Before it became famous for this, it was famous because of its natural beauty and religious heritage. Located at 1h15 to the northwest coast of Lisbon, the ride will be filled of stories and share of information. The morning will spent at Nazaré, visiting the lighthouse and fortress museum, enjoying the beauty and strength of mother nature being defied by brave man and woman. After enjoying a great to at Nazaré we will take the road direction to Obidos. The village inside a castle. At Óbidos we will share a ginjinha, the typical liquor at its hometown. Óbidos is filled with history, legends, culture and… sweets. No better place to catch the breathe of what you’ll see at Nazaré. The medieval fortified town that time froze and allow us to to jump back in time and live the architectural beauty, local artisans crafts, legends, myths, history…
