Coudelaria de Alter Hunting Estate Hunting Itinerary
Your hunting trip to the Coudelaria de Alter estate is spread over five days with three nights hunting boar. Your time of arrival at the hotel will depend on your flight arrival time at Lisbon. Day one can be a time to relax and enjoy our hospitality. Depending on your time of arrival, lunch and dinner including wine and beverages will be provided by us. Day two, after enjoying breakfast at your hotel, we leave for the short journey to the Coudelaria de Alter hunting estate. There, after a welcoming coffee, we will introduce you to our host for the day, Francisco Beja.
Francisco will talk you through a typical night hunting boar on the estate. During the morning you will have time to look around the estate and enjoy the history of Coudelaria de Alter. Late morning you will be taken in one of the estate vehicles to view your hunting area and you will have a chance to familiarise yourself with the surroundings ready for the night hunt. After a good traditional lunch you will have time to get ready your equipment and prepare for your first night hunt.
With your guide, you will be taken to your station at least one hour before sunset. At this time we will provide you with some “quiet food” in a soft bag along with something to drink, to enjoy during the hunt. Remember, any unwanted sound during the night can lead to an unsuccessful hunt. Around mid-night, you and your guide will be collected from your station and driven to the country house for a light supper and something to warm you up. When you are ready, we will take you back to your hotel for a comfortable nights sleep.
A successful hunt will result in the boar being collected and taken to the country house, where you will have the chance to record your achievement.
During your visit, you will have the chance to sample the delicious meat of the Alentejo boar. Day three and four will follow the same format but with a totally different experience from a new hunting station on each night.
On the morning of your departure and after breakfast, your coach will leave for the 2-hour return journey to Lisbon airport.
Each guest will be given a printed itinerary card with hotel breakfast, lunch and evening meal times and the hunting days itinerary to help your days run smoothly.
