This is a wonderful way to enjoy some of the beautiful nature in one of Europe's largest urban forests. The experience will take place in Lisbon's Monsanto Forest Park, which is easily accessible by subway or bus, and has a wonderful variety of nature and views of Lisbon. The forest park has over 100km of trails, and we'll be exploring many of the unique places in the park including small caves, eucalyptus forests, and overlooks of the city. Guests will be guided on a 2.5-3 hour hike that can customized to meet their desired intensity level and interest areas. There is also the opportunity to stop at picnic areas for a snack, exercise at outdoor fitness stations, take part in a short guided meditation, and do some trailrunning. There will be many different ways to make this experience a nourishing time spent in nature that meets the guest's expectations. Along with exploring a magnificent forest in the middle of Lisbon, there are many other aspects to this experience that make it unique and rewarding. The meeting location is near Alto Dos Moinhos metro station but can also be changed to be more convenient for the guests. I'm looking forward to meeting you and sharing this wonderful natural experience!
I'm a yoga teacher and wildlife biologist that has worked in various locations in the US. I love the outdoors, and am an avid hiker, camper, and backpacker that has spent hundreds of nights sleeping under the stars. I live next to the Monsanto Forest, and run and hike there every week. I have lots of experience on the many trails and paths in the forest and know many of the secret spots that aren't too easy to find. I loving sharing my passion for nature with others and sharing time among the trees :)
We will be visiting various areas in the Monsanto Forest Park in Lisbon. There are many secret spots that include small caves, beautiful overlooks, and different types of ecosystems. Without a guide, these places are very difficult to find, and the park can be difficult to navigate.
