Walking holidays in Portugal

For our walking holiday in Portugal we have something unique! It features the unspoilt inland area of the Algarve. We have designed the holiday to give you an unusual view of the Algarve region - a view so true to the spirit and history of the area you perhaps won’t recognise it. Old crafts, set by landscape and natural vegetation are still proudly practised; time honoured recipes remain in tact and the natural rhythm of the countryside flows on uninterrupted. It comes awash with wonderful sun., inland hills and valleys that are charmingly remote, untainted villages, an uncomplicated way of life and locals that embrace your presence. The walking is delightful but not too challenging with long views that inspire and close ups to treasure. You will live simply, eat traditionally and smile genuinely.
