If you are looking for an adventure and unique experience you are in the right place. A tour with Cool Explorers Portugal is different from the mainstream tour offers you will usually find. We don’t use the common luxury vans and opted for a vintage Land Rover Defender so you can come along on memorable expeditions, aboard one of the most stunning, classy, and photogenic off-roaders ever built.

The ride won’t be as smooth or comfortable, but you can be sure it will be the most fun being able to cross paths no other tourists can reach. Your tour guide will take you on a mixture of off-road tracks and coastal trails with activities, delicious restaurants and wineries, majestic monuments, beautiful beaches, magnificent secret spots, and much more for you to discover.

This is done while sharing curiosities, fun facts, stories, and historical information. On some parts of the tour, you will also have time to explore solo. On our tours page, you will find more information about the unique offers we have for each destination.

Our tours are always private. We feel it’s the best way to make each experience more personal and tailor-made for our customers. Our Land Rover Defender has the capacity of 5 available seats for passengers.

This means it will only be you and your family or friends aboard one of the most iconic off-roaders ever built exploring Portugal on memorable expeditions.

The information about extra costs is present on each tour page. Lunch is not included however we only recommend restaurants that we consider the best experience for our customers in quality and price-wise.

Portugal is a very sunny country. With an average of 3000 hours of sunshine a year and pleasant temperatures even in winter we can say that most likely you will have amazing weather during your holidays in Portugal.

On Summer days we will travel by our Land Rover Defender in safari mode with the soft top partially opened and the Marshall Sound System playing great tunes. Bring a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses to better enjoy the experience.

Even in summer at the end of the day, the weather can change quickly and it’s usually a few degrees cooler. We recommend bringing a jacket or sweater.

On winter and colder days, we keep the soft top closed for your comfort. We have comfy blankets and your experience will be as exciting as on a summer day. With a huge advantage, we will most likely find mud on our off-road paths.
