Get there and around

From Lisbon you can catch a train and get off in Mangualde or Nelas city (you can also take the time to visit these small cities), from there rent a car or catch a Bus till the Serra da Estrela.
You can also get off in Guarda, and there again catch a bus or (preferably) rent a car.

There is a great camping park located next to Vale do Rossim - I was only there in Summer, but I've seen people camping in the snowy season.
A few years ago wild camping was allowed (or at least not forbiden), I'm not sure how it works now.

Another option is to catch a bus from Lisbon, direction Covilha or Fundao, and from there catch a Bus or rent a car till the top of the mountain - it's much more touristic orientated.

It's up to you to decide which side of the mountain you want to see.
