The Best of the Rota Vicentina

Combining both our Rota Vicentina: Wild Algarve and Rota Vicentina: Fishermen trail tour brings you almost 2 weeks worth of walking down a 100 mile stretch of rugged Atlantic coastline. 

The Rota Vicentina trail is voted in the top 6 most beautiful coastal trails in the world and it's easy to see why...quiet sandy trails that are anchored by honey-coloured cliffs, deserted beaches and hidden sandy coves that are all mainly only accessible on foot. Walking along the south-west coast of Portugal really lets you discover and see "real" Portugal.

Stay overnight in forgotten Portuguese fishing villages with a laid back vibe. Spot white storks nesting on jaggy cliffs and at the end of the day enjoy a glass of ‘vinho’ with some freshly caught seafood as you listen to the crashing of Atlantic waves.
