Portugal is a long stretch of land in the far southwest of the Iberian Peninsula.The Atlantic ocean washes its western shores and it borders onto Spain in the east. The islands of Madeira and the Azores are also part of Portuguese territory. The Tagus river, separates the rugged north, which has a mountainous interior, from the rolling plains in the south and on the Algarve coast. Portugal is defined as a Mediterranean climate and is one of the warmest European countries; however the climate in Portugal is very varied especially on the islands where in different parts of its archipelago you find sub-tropical, maritime temperate and semi-arid steppe climates.
Portugal has a long and complicated history. As part of the south of the Iberian peninsula it became fully integrated into the Roman world. After 711 southern Portugal prospered under Moorish rule. It emerged as a country in the tenth century during the Christian reconquest of the Iberian Peninsula. In the 15th century Portugal became a great maritime nation and empire. It suffered civil war and was first declared as a Republic in 1910.
Portugal’s beauty unfolds in a startling variety. You can go hiking amid granite peaks and thick forests. Despite the fact that humans have occupied the territory for thousands of years Portugal is home to a few extremely rare mature forests: a Mediterranean forest in the Arrábida national park and a subtropical forest in the Madeira main island.
The Portuguese marine waters, which are subject to upwelling, are one of the richest in the world both in nutrients and diversity of marine life. Literally thousands of species thrive here including the sardine (Sardina pilchardus), tuna, cod and Atlantic mackerel. Portugal is also important for migratory birds since it is the closest stopover between Northern Europe and Africa.
Portuguese people are very hospitable. They speak a beautiful language, sing and dance in local costumes and play bagpipes, drums, flutes, tambourines, accordions and guitars. Festivals are common. They are hard working, family people and very proud of their country and culture. The Portuguese Table is typically Mediterranean and they have perfected the art of cooking simple, delicious meals. Tables are brightly laden with freshly baked bread, olives, cheese, red wine or crisp vinho verde (young wine), chargrilled fish, seafood stew and smoked meats. After dinner you will almost certainly find yourself sipping the velvety ports of the Douro Valley.

We believe that where you sleep is an important part of your overall travel experience. So, we put a lot of effort into carefully choosing the hotels for each tour.
Our priority is to find attractive, clean, and quiet rooms with private bathrooms in the best possible accommodation. We make sure that each night you are comfortably settled in a place that is welcoming and full of authentic local charm.
The result is a fabulous selection of delightful hotels, medieval palaces, family-run hotels, country residences, manor houses, historic inns, luxurious alpine hotels – sometimes with a spa, sauna, or swimming pool facilities – and all with character, tasty food and a friendly atmosphere.
You will have to keep coming back to experience them all! Sweet Dreams!
We love our jobs and personally lead all our small group tours. Italy, Spain and England are our homes and our passion. We bring that excitement with us on all our tours so that you too share our favourite places.
We are very experienced and handle all the logistics while you relax and become immersed in the local culture, history and traditions.
We know the locals on all our trips and they love meeting our groups. We are small enough to get into private homes, chat to villagers, fit in small restaurants and enjoy all kinds of unexpected events that aren’t accessible to large groups of tourists following a red umbrella.
Our customer reviews say that Caspin Journeys takes the best care of you. We are a sustainable travel company and the only thing we leave behind is our footprints!

Getting out and about on foot is a wonderful way to slow down the pace, relax and get some healthy exercise.
When we walk we see so much more – grapevines, wildflowers, ancient oaks, wheat fields, avenues of cypresses and pine, time resistant hills and valleys.
As we stroll through historic towns we learn about the culture of the people; as we stand in the splendour of the countryside, beneath the soaring columns of ancient temples, abbey walls and turrets of medieval castles we marvel at man’s ability to conceive of and construct such monuments.
Food is an all important part of each and every one of our journeys. We are foodies, we love to savour the authentic flavours of each destination we visit. And let’s not forget the wine “the drink of the gods” which will accompany every meal, even picnics!
Picture yourself eating Buffalo mozzarella from a farm in Amalfi, tasting a Sicilian cannolo with fresh ricotta cheese, home-made pasta, organic vegetables, fresh fish and so on.
Or why not consider a Gourmet Cooking Holiday in Tuscany, where you will learn directly from the locals?
If all this sounds mouthwatering then look no further, you are in the right place 😉
On our small group tours we use a combination of gourmet restaurants, local trattorias, traditional pubs, tapas bars and farmhouse meals, to give you the best overall experience!
Each adventure combines fantastic hikes and authentic cultural experiences which make for a phenomenal and enriching travel experience. – admire Giotto’s frescoes in Assisi – walk in the Castle gardens of Henry VIII – stand at the tomb of St James in Compostela – gaze at and touch the columns of a Greek temple – visit the birthplace of Napoleon Buonaparte – see how a Duke lives at Blenheim Palace – tread the streets of Pompeii – admire mosaics in a Norman cathedral – understand more about the Roman Empire Travel in the richest artistic heritage in the world, many of which are part of UNESCO.
