Horizontes – Turismo Desportivo

HORIZONTES

… since 1998.

What we experience is what shapes and transforms us.

Throughout the nearly 25 years of the Horizons project, all of our events, successful or not, we have always shaped them for one purpose: to offer unique and unspeakable experiences in places of high human, historical and or natural value. In this time and space we want you to experience new aromas, new flavours, to meet other people and cities. History, customs, traditions, and ethnography are important parts of this project of Sports Tourism or “Maraturism”.

In this ¼ of century, we have climbed to the highest point in Portugal, Serra da Estrela, we have crossed Portugal from north to south, from east to west, or just Beira Baixa. We have already ventured through the historic town of Sintra, Ericeira, and since 2015 we have been heading to Brazil to cross the longest beach in the world, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul.

There are more than 100 events organized and many friends all over the world.
