Where do our walking holidays in Portugal take place?
The Camino Portugués or Portuguese Camino traditional (central) way is a fantastic route for pilgrims looking for a more rural experience on the Camino de Santiago, while the Portuguese Coastal Way or Caminho da Costa is a stunning alternative route to the traditional Portuguese Camino. We have developed itineraries of different length and difficulty along both Portuguese Caminos, so that you can easily find the right Camino experience for you.
The coastal strip between Odeceixe and Burgau, known as the Vicentina Coast, where the preserved nature has a strong, wild character, creating landscapes of breathtaking majesty. This area is part of the biggest coastal natural park in Europe that starts further north in the Southwest Alentejo and is the longest stretch of protected Portuguese coast.
The beaches follow one another, some of them long swathes of sand stretching into the distance, others smaller, framed by magnificent schist and limestone cliffs. The choppy sea produces a natural symphony that serves as the soundtrack to this walking by the sea. The area is home to the famous Rota Vicentina long distance trail, along which we have developed our self guided walking itineraries.
Portuguese Islands (Madeira and the Azores)
Right in the middle of the Atlantic, the island of Madeira and the Azores are a haven of natural beauty. The exotic colours of the flowers stand out from among the blue sea and the emerald vegetation.
Douro Wine Region
Follow unpaved roads and footpaths as you walk from village to village, sample award-winning wines and spend the nights in characterful country hotels set on wine estates.
