Beyond a holiday

Experiences are really what make a trip memorable so for the time that you’re not eating, sleeping or surfing we can help you to make the most of your time in Portugal. We’ve done the research to save you the time and effort of filtering through websites and reviews. We have found the best of the Activities in the local area and designed a programme of tours so that all you need to do is browse through the options and choose what you fancy- safe in the knowledge that we’ve done the hard work for you.


We have a variety of options for you in our tours programme. Whether culture & history is your thing, or you would prefer to spend an afternoon off the beaten track with a local surfboard shaper; we’ve got it covered. We strive to provide authentic experiences that complement the rest of your stay with us. If there is something that you’ve love to do but don’t see it on the list here, get in contact and we will do our best to get it organized for you- a little local knowledge goes a long way.

  • Nazaré: Culture & Waves

    Nazare is one of the richest examples of Portuguese culture. This tour includes a visit to the famous Forte de São Miguel where you will learn about how 100ft waves can be generated (and surfed!), a delicious meal and the opportunity to explore a town that is extremely proud of its heritage.

  • Óbidos: Medieval Experience

    The Medieval walled village of Obidos is just 20 minutes’ drive from Surfers Lodge. We will guide you through the unique history and culture through games, food and visiting landmarks along the cobbled streets. This tour will entertain adults and children alike and can be tailored to the needs of your group.

  • Berlengas Islands

    The archipelago of Berlengas islands is 10 km off the coast of Peniche. The island of Berlenga Grande only has a handful of inhabitants so you can really be transported away from the modern world and into the wild. On the tour you will have the opportunity to fish, hike, snorkel, SUP, swim, BBQ or bird watch, all guided by knowledgeable local guides. Depending of the time of year, dolphins also sometimes join the tours. Experiencing Berlengas is something not to be missed.

  • Board Shaping: Technical Tour

    This is a more in depth, technical version of the ‘Intro to a Shaper’ tour at Foil surfboards- an independent, local shaping company. Billy will spend more time talking through each stage of the shaping process to give a more thorough understanding. After being thoroughly schooled in the world of surfboards, there will be a question & answer session where you can relax at the workshop with a cold beer. After this tour, you will feel like an expert the next time you walk into a surf shop.

  • Wine Experience

    Explore the family estate of Quinta do Sanguinhal in Bombarral, just half an hour drive from Surfers Lodge. You can taste a variety of wines; try local cheeses and traditional Portuguese cakes. The buildings & vineyards are truly stunning and the knowledge & passion that the family have is second-to-none.


The Lodge is all about making you feel like you’re at home. So if you normally spend your spare time on the golf course or are a dedicated yogi, we want to make sure you don’t miss out on those home comforts. We also have a variety of equipment and resources to ensure you have the best stay possible. Borrow our bicycles, learn to skate, explore the ocean floor, take a picnic to the beach or relax with a massage… let the good times roll.
