Motoring around Lisbon in a sidecar attached to a vintage motorbike is one of more unusual ways to keep yourself occupied outdoors, but this is a wholly novel way to experience the capital and induces a wonderful feeling of nostalgia. This is sightseeing in style, and with someone else doing all the steering you can (literally) get the lowdown on Portugal's vibrant capital city. Sitting in the car just a foot off the ground, or riding pillion if there's two of you, everything suddenly appears twice as large and very near. The sidecar team are experienced bikers and excellent tour guides and know Lisbon's roads like the back of their hands – especially the old cobblestone streets around the historical zones. They can also take you beyond the city limits, to places like Sintra, Cabo de Roca and Arrábida.
- Outdoor Activities: "Consider the 'Lisbon at Night' excursion where you're taken over the Ponte 25 de Abril suspension bridge to Alamada to admire the city from the south bank as dusk falls. The views are incredible!"
- Best for Outdoor Activities Because: This is a rare opportunity to snuggle up in sidecar for a classic motorbike tour of the capital.
