Hiking in the Algarve -


In addition to a fantastic coastline and beaches, the Algarve offers more. The hilly and green interior is a true paradise for hikers. There are many unpaved roads and goat paths through this beautiful nature. The most famous route is called ‘Via Algarviana’. This route was originally a religious path that pilgrims walked to the headland at Sagres, where the relics of the saint São Vicente are found.

Discover the Via Algarviana -


The ‘Via Algarviana‘ runs from Alcoutim, near the river Guadiana, to Cabo de São Vicente and is divided into 14 stages. We offer you a hiking holiday through the unspoilt countryside of the Algarve. You will enjoy the beautiful views and the wonderful smells of nature as rosemary, thyme and lavender, while walking along nature trails. You see a lot of oak trees as well as fig-, almond and carob trees. Various species such as Bonelli’s eagle, owls and hops got their home base here. Besides the beautiful and varied countryside, there are lovely villages on the route, such as Salir or Alte which are worth a visit.
