HIGHLIGHTS – Hiking Tours in Portugal SW Coast

  • Walking along the coast in really isolated tracks
  • Lovely fisherman villages
  • Delicious seafood.
  • Endless views from high cliffs
  • One of the best Hiking Tours in Portugal – ask anyone!

You’ll be overwhelmed by the endless views, the rough sea and the contrast between the blue ocean and the colorful rocks. Stork nests hanging on top of pointy rocks challenge gravity and the flora and bird watching are as rich as it gets.

This track is simply unforgettable. If you can only do one Hiking Tours in Portugal, this is it!

Do this route either guided or self-guided. Certainly picking a guided tour will give you the opportunity to experience the personal point of view of a local on all the monuments, culture, gastronomy and traditions of our people. With a guide you may decide what when and where along the way really customizing your tour. And we will have the opportunity to get to know you and share a bit of who we are.

We hope you enjoy our Portugal Walks!

Day 3

Almograve beach will set the beginning of the day’s walk just until the fishing port. Then some sand dunes will wait for you, challenging your determination along beautiful scenery. The sand changes colours and sometimes you feel like walking along a desert. Storks and other wild life keeps you company and their sounds will briefly interrupt your thoughts every once in a while. In season watch their babies in the nests that are so close to you that a zoom lenses is sometimes unnecessary! This is the only place in the world where the storks build their nests on rocky islets sticking out of the ocean. From cape Sardão until the end of the day the ancient ever-changing coastline will be the treat of the day. 4 kms always walking along the Coast.
