Hiking trail in The Algarve


Arrival in The Algarve

Today you will arrive in Faro, an old fishing village and, from there, you will have a transfer included that will take you to the town of Praia da Luz, where you will spend your first night before starting the hiking trail in The Algarve. This city is currently protected by the Roca Negra cliffs.

In the case that you arrive in Lisbon, please let us know, and we can add a transfer from Lisbon Airport to Praia da Luz to your itinerary for a small additional cost.


Hiking to Praia da Luz

Breakfast included.

Today you will begin your trek along ancient paths that border the sea. You will continue along the coast towards Ponta da Piedade, from where you can see the cliffs and the ocean’s turquoise colour.

As you walk, the seabirds and the region's native flora will delight you with their beauty. We remind you that you are in an old fishing village where, in addition, you can visit an impressive fortress from where the views of the Atlantic are breathtaking.


From Praia da Luz to Salema

Breakfast included.

While walking, throughout today’s route, you will find multiple ancient fortresses and charming villages, many of them that will invite you to make a stop, contemplate them and try some of their gastronomy. Especially, of course, at your final destination. In Salema, don't miss your chance to dine in a good restaurant and feel as if you were at home.


From Barao de Sao Joao to Salema

Breakfast included.

Today you will be taken from Salema to Barao de Sao Joao, in the interior of the region, from where you can start enjoying your journey thanks to the beauty of its architecture. Your route will go through pine forests first, and then you'll head back to the coast through other small towns.

If, on your fourth day you want to rest, we suggest you also take a walk through Salema and along its beaches and spectacular coves. It will be an excellent way to bring to life to another day of hiking, which will also be accompanied by the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean.


From Salema to Sagres

Breakfast included.

Today you will travel along one of the unspoilt coasts in the area, with beaches and lagoons that you will discover on your way. You will get to know the Ingrina and Zavial beaches which are considered by other walkers as the ideal places to stop and enjoy the panorama.

Once in Sagres, you can enjoy the perfect combination of land and sea. In the city that is the most south-westerly in the Algarve region, you will experience the beauty of walking through a picturesque village accompanied very closely by the sea.


From Sagres to the Cabo Sao Vicente lighthouse

Breakfast included.

Today you will walk along spectacular cliffs towards the Cabo Sao Vicente lighthouse, your destination on this hiking trail in The Algarve. You will become acquainted with beaches and fortresses that will give an incomparable charm to your hike today.

As a curious fact, we tell you that the lighthouse that you will reach was built on what was an old convent from the mid-16th century.

When you finish your tour of the lighthouse and have enjoyed it, you will take a transfer back to Sagres.


Return from Sagres

Breakfast included.

Today you will have a transfer included from Sagres to Faro Airport, from where you will take your flight back to your home city*. You can also take the transfer to Lisbon Airport, if you have previously requested it.

* Remember that when you book your circuit you can ask us to book additional hotel nights for the days after the end of your circuit to extend your stay in one of the municipalities on your hiking route in The Algarve.
