Easy to Moderate Terrain: 5 - 8 Miles Daily
It’s a side of Portugal you never dreamed existed. Gently rolling hills slope to fertile farms dotted with cork trees, olive trees, and green vineyards. Red sandstone walls plunge to dream-like beaches and roiling Atlantic waters. This is Alentejo, where magnificent rural lands rise to stone villages and breathtaking coastal landscapes. In the northern reaches of Alto Alentejo, trace the medieval trails and old smugglers’ roads of Serra de São Mamede Natural Park through cork oak woodlands and chestnut groves, exploring tiny hamlets and imposing castles. In the southern region of Baixo Alentejo, follow the Rota Vicentina along towering seaside cliffs, nesting ground for a huge array of birdlife. Pause in tiny fishing villages and soak your feet in the waters of pristine beaches. Break up your walks with full-day explorations of medieval Évora and magnificent Lisbon, a local guide leading you past remarkably preserved architecture that whispers of a rich history. Cap off your adventure with a live performance of fado, Portugal’s soulful cultural treasure.
