Porto is also known as Oporto for the non-Portuguese part of the world, which is fine and has a simple explanation. You can google “exonym” if you want to know more. Oporto is located along the Douro and is our second-largest city, after Lisboa (Lisbon). It’s globally known for its beautiful architecture, urban ambience, historical influence, amazingly hospitable people, and of course, Vinho do Porto (Port Wine).

But for us, Oporto is much more than that!

Portugal is trending! We know that and we know you also know it. But ‘our’ Portugal is very different from the one magazines insist on selling. We’re a country of history, tradition, rich gastronomy, a very intense way of looking at life itself and very proud of most of our past. We love modernity but we’re not ashamed of our most humble origins.

Portugal offers a singular diversity of landscapes, seascapes, urbanscapes and traditions. We think that’s what most people love about our country. We present a lot to see in such a narrowed space.

A small island, but full of valleys, gorges and mountains still to be explored: We present you the Madeira Island.

 

One of the most popular holiday destinations in the world, and perhaps because of that, unfairly “off the radar” of photographers worldwide. From valleys, mountains, canyons, Laurissilva forest, starry skies, everything will make you dazzled and invaded by the desire to create long-lasting photographic memories.

Aveiro Food & Photo Tour

3 nights food & photography tour!

(2019)January to July and September to December

5 nights food & photography tour!

Lisbon Food & Photo Tour

3 nights food & photography tour! (soon)

(2019) January to July and September to December

Aveiro is singular! Very different from any other place in Portugal and that’s why even so many Portuguese people visit us over and over. Saramago, the Portuguese Nobel awarded and globally acclaimed writer once described Aveiro as “A living body that binds the earth to the sea like a huge heart“.

Aveiro is famous for its central water channel that divides the city into two sides, plus, the vast number of smaller channels, gave this beautiful town its reputation of “Portuguese Venice”.

Alentejo is located “beyond” the Tagus river, which earned it the name of “Beyond Tejo” that roughly translates into “Além Tejo” (Alentejo).

In the middle of the immense Alentejo, the beautiful night Alqueva skies present themselves like a dark cloak painted by a tremendous mantle of stars. It is a protected area and is, in fact, an internationally certified area, registered as a Dark Sky reserve, or “Starlight Tourism Destination”, which spans an area of a very impressive 3000 square kilometres.

Very Soon!

“Shoot and Feel Like a New Yorker” is a concept that aims to make all participants feel comfortable in a city as if it were theirs.

 

Being, in essence, a photographic tour, we wanted it to go way far beyond that expectation and our goal is also to help you interiorize all the dynamics and charm of the city through its attractions …

Panorama de Praga à noite

One of the most beautiful cities in the world, with eleven centuries of history!

 

Known as the city of one hundred domes and since 1992 a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Prague is one of the most beautiful and ancient urban centres in Europe, famous for its extensive architectural heritage and rich cultural life.

Vista de Edimburgo a partir de Calton Hill

A city steeped in history, where the old meets the new and everything becomes “just perfect” and very suitable for a wonderful photographic and cultural destination! Edinburgh is a vibrant, sophisticated city steeped in history.

 

Being the capital of Scotland since the 15th century, it is made up of “Old Town” and “New Town”, forming the perfect blend between medieval and cosmopolitan.

Join the Viewpoint Tours for a unique and amazing period in the Icelandic winter. Hunt the northern lights, and witness the sublime phenomenon of the aurora borealis.

 

We’ll explore all the available natural wonders during the compressed period of daylight and prepare ourselves for the night. As night falls, we’ll seek for the amazing blue, green, and violet arcs in the sky.

F-road em Katla Geopark a caminho de Þakgil

Visiting Iceland is being face-to-face with a primitive mother-land, pure, and magnificent in all its splendour. It’s embracing the powerful serenity of a landscape very little touched by the human hand and still very dependent on the wills and whims of the most powerful of all the forces: nature itself!

 

Iceland is like a different planet. Join the Viewpoint Tours for the most comprehensive tour of Iceland.

Cavalos islandeses

OK! You love photography, you’re crazy about landscape and nature – at least as much as we at the Viewpoint Tours – but you’re very much in love with a soft and warm bed at night. No worries! We’ve created just the thing for you.

 

The Iceland Comfort Package is as good as it gets. Almost as comprehensive as our “Road Trip & Camping” tour but with all the extras that put the “Comfort” in Iceland.

The land of stunning views, lochs, haggis, whisky and legends. An amazing journey for photographers and nature lovers. Far from being as famous as it would probably deserve, the Isle of Skye is an astonishing location as a whole, and easy-to-explore landscape, and a place you’ll be fervent to return to.

 

The Viewpoint Tours program for the Isle of Skye is your best choice to discover such a tremendous natural beauty.

Pico de uma montanha na Madeira envolvida por neblina

A small island, but full of valleys, gorges and mountains still to be explored: We present you the Madeira Island.

 

One of the most popular holiday destinations in the world, and perhaps because of that, unfairly “off the radar” of photographers worldwide. From valleys, mountains, canyons, Laurissilva forest, starry skies, everything will make you dazzled and invaded by the desire to create long-lasting photographic memories.

Basílica de Covadonga nas Astúrias

In Portugal, there is a saying that (roughly translated) says that “nothing good comes from Spain”. Joking aside, for photographers and nature lovers, this couldn’t be wronger. From miles and miles of awesome seascapes to magnificent mountains, the country of nuestros hermanos will amaze you!

 

In the tour to Picos de Europa you will find a region full of natural wonders, but still quite unknown. Viewpoint Tours will take you on a trip to discover glacial lakes, mountain views (and tracks), impressive viewpoints and other surprises.

Cabines de alojamento em Lofoten, Noruega

The Lofoten islands are nowadays a way too popular destination! There is no other way to describe what’s going on. However, there are things that are always trending and we just can’t seem to understand why, and there are others, like the Lofoten, that we totally get it. How couldn’t we?!

 

We know Norway is not just a small set of islands near the Arctic, but it is impossible to describe the beauty and photographic interest of the territory without mentioning that same set of islands. Viewpoint Tours is concluding this and other itineraries in Norway and very briefly we will be ready to show you the fabulous programs we are designing.

Montanha nas Dolomitas com alguma neve

The Dolomites are unique, like no other mountains, and it should come as no surprise to learn that UNESCO has designated them a World Heritage Site.

 

Viewpoint Tours photographic tour for the Dolomites will drive and guide you to more than 19 POIs, scattered between absolutely stunning mountain views, lakes, portentous gorges and peaks. To these geographical spots, Viewpoint Tours added several extra stops, “special” spots, as well as some additional surprises.

This is the one Norway of the narrow fjords that cut the steep mountains, and the same of the amazing waterfalls that draw lines in the slopes. Norway has an absolutely remarkable landscape created by a succession of eras and remains practically unchanged for thousands of years.

 

Nevertheless, Norway is much more than a simple generalist travel agency brochure. We are working hard to deliver an amazing itinerary, full of “sweet extras” that only photographers know how to praise. We are almost there and hope to announce this tour in a very short time. It will be worth the wait!
