Oversikt

Go beyond the Algarve and explore the most pristine coastal trails in Portugal

Passing wild beaches, whitewashed villages and towering cliffs, the Rota Vicentina is one of the great hiking routes in Europe. We handpicked the very best walks from this extensive network of trails, which spans the tranquil Alentejo region and along the few remaining undeveloped shores of the Algarve. Starting from the picturesque town of Vila Nova de Milfontes, we walk on quiet cliff trails used by locals to access the beaches and best fishing spots, and end in the town of Sagres. We stay overnight in three different villages, each chosen to provide easy access to the trails. The refreshing coastal breeze and inviting landscape make walking in this remote corner of Europe truly reinvigorating. Did you know you can travel by train to this trip? Find out more here

Food
All breakfasts and five picnic lunches are included. The picnic lunches will include a mix of sandwiches, cheeses, cured meats and fruit. During the week, we get the opportunity to sample delicacies and traditional dishes of this region, which will include fresh seafood and fish. The local speciality from the sea is gooseneck barnacles (also known as perceves); taken from the bottom of submerged cliffs, it is harvested by hand using a dangerous and traditional method, which involves one of the two collectors dangling from a rope attached to the clifftops! Away from the sea, the dried hams, salamis and cheeses are excellent. Good quality meat is also always on the menu. Vegetables are plentiful but, although vegetarian dishes are available in traditional restaurants, the choice may be limited.
Weather

Southwest Portugal has a Mediterranean climate with a strong Atlantic influence, guaranteeing mild temperatures throughout the year. Winters are short and are never very cold, but offer enough rain to fertilise the soil for the nine months when the sun is king. The recommended period to walk the Rota Vicentina is from September until June, when our departures are scheduled. In winter, temperatures do not fall below 11C (52F) during the day and this is normally the rainiest period of the year. From March, sunny days alternate with rainy days and temperatures start to rise. The reborn landscape and the intensity of the colours and aromas make spring one of the best seasons to visit. Heatwaves can push up temperatures in July and August and it gets too hot for walking. In autumn, temperatures are generally quite mild, with the ocean reaching pleasant temperatures for swimming. Please note, coastal areas of Portugal are known to be quite windy throughout the year. We highly recommend you check the weather forecast close to the arrival date and bring adequate rain gear.

Is this trip for you?

This trip is rated Activity Level 2 (Leisurely/Moderate).

The Rota Vicentina is home to some of the best coastal walks in Europe – the remote, quiet trails and temperate climate making it a haven for hikers and ramblers. The average walking distance each day is approximately 8mi (13km) and the walking pace allows time to rest and enjoy the views. The routes are mostly undulating and do not include any long challenging climbs; however, the terrain can make the walking quite exerting at times as we mainly take sandy trails near beaches and rugged clifftop paths. Some of the trails are exposed but there is always the option to walk away from the exposed parts if you would prefer.

Walks usually take between four and six hours including picnic lunch stops (depending on the pace of your group) and require a good level of fitness.
