Great photographers say it’s all about the light. And whether you are an amateur photographer or just love collecting memories with a camera, tailor-made tours in Portugal will give you plenty of opportunities to embrace the light!
Portugal has an average of 3000 hours of sunshine per year, but what’s really special about it is that this light is absolutely unique! From North to South, Portugal is blessed with an inimitable light that varies in intensity and texture, but is always spectacular. From the clear-cut Atlantic luminosity, to the soft intensity of the Mediterranean light, you will be awestruck. Tailor-made tours in Portugal are the perfect occasion to discover the beauty of a strikingly photogenic country. Get your camera, open your eyes and your heart to each moment and celebrate the light.

Capturing the Essence of Portugal in Tailor-Made Tours
Capture the essence of Portugal in photographs that will take you back to the fond memories of your journey. In a five-day tailor-made tour in Portugal, from the Douro Valley, in the North, to the southern and sunny Alentejo, with stops at the charming cities of Porto and Lisbon, and quaint little villages in the center, you will enjoy a myriad of sceneries and atmospheres. Together, they form a kaleidoscope of impressions and images that make Portugal so wonderful and inimitable. From the granite houses in the North, to the whitewashed villages of the South, a country of beauty and contrasts will unfold.
Imagine taking a picture of the breathtaking landscape of Douro, with its terraced slopes filled with vineyards, the mountains and the river at your feet, from one of the region’s amazing viewpoints. In Porto, capture the matchless mood of the city, its vintage charm so beautifully blended with modernity, in a beautiful photo of its tiled façades, or a stunning picture of the mouth of the Douro river, the city’s bridges and riverbanks.
Going south, Portugal’s coastline is perfect to capture the scenic and wild beauty of the Atlantic, and the small villages, in the center of Portugal (Historic Villages) but also in the Alentejo (Marvão, Monserrate) are also extremely photogenic. These incredible tiny villages where time seems to stand still are the hidden gems of Portuguese culture and heritage, don’t miss them!
Loveable Lisbon: Tailor-Made Tours in Portugal
With so many white stone buildings (and sidewalks), it is no surprise that Lisbon is called the “white city”. But as you will immediately find out when visiting Lisbon, it’s the city’s one-of-a-kind light that creates this marvelous sensation. The city’s impressionistic light has inspired poets, musicians and filmmakers. Photographers too, no need to say.
A white glow that dissolves into hues of pink, purple and glow as the sun sets, Lisbon’s light is truly astounding and unforgettable. As a tribute to the light of Lisbon, at Episode Travel we’ve prepared a very special photographic experience tour, which will make you see the city through the eyes of a photographer. From dawn to the gleaming light of Lisbon at dusk, from the streets of old districts to the city’s new monuments, and with unique viewpoints from which to shoot, it will be an experience to remember.
Lisbon’s belvederes, or miradouros, offer some of the best views in the city. They are also the perfect standpoint to take the most incredible photos of the cityscape, with its terracotta roofs and domes. In our Top 3 list are the Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara, next to Bairro Alto, which offers an unbeatable panoramic view, the Miradouro das Portas do Sol, on the way up to the Castle, with the river at your feet and the less known but equally wonderful Miradouro do Recolhimento, where you will find shade among the olive trees and marvel at the rooftops of Alfama.
