Getting here from Lisbon or Porto
Fly into Lisbon or Porto on the Friday or Saturday if you can, and enjoy time in those charming cities or by the beach before heading up to see us in the mountains on the Sunday afternoon coaches: the 1.30pm from Lisbon or the 4.30pm from Porto, to our local town of Oleiros, where we will pick you up by car on arrival. Buy your coach tickets online (only visible a week in advance), via the Rede Expressos website or better still their Myrne app. The Sete Rios coach station in Lisbon is a 15 minute shuttle bus, metro or taxi ride from both the airport and city centre. The Porto coach station is a 25 minute train ride into the centre from the airport to 24 de Agosto metro station.
We email everyone the week before arrival so if you wish, you can arrange to meet each other before travelling up to the forest together. Good meeting place in Lisbon is the café in the Zoo next to the coach station. The trip from Porto changes in Coimbra and we pick you up at 7.45pm in Sertã. If you prefer to spend the afternoon in Coimbra rather than Porto, take an earlier coach or train in time for the 6.30pm bus to Sertã.
Return coach is Saturday 8am from Oleiros to both Lisbon and Porto arriving midday. Best to choose evening flights home, or stay a night there and fly home Sunday.
