There is a diversity of walking holidays in Portugal to be enjoyed, right across the country. Many of these trails are relatively easy grade four walks, making rambling highly accessible for inexperienced walkers. In fact, there’s a wide selection of walks available for those who simply want to enjoy a leisurely stroll through Portugal’s exotic landscapes, and take in its spectacular scenery.
However, there are still plenty of walks on offer for avid hikers looking for a challenge. Ascend to the heights of Peneda-Geres National Park to see some of Portugal’s most astonishing sights, with rustic trails, sweeping hillsides and quaint mountain villages to be enjoyed. Alternatively, explore the dramatic mountains and colourful flora and fauna found on Portugal’s Emerald Coast; there truly is a walk designed for everyone in this beautiful country.
Why Book a Walking Holiday to Portugal?
Portugal is one of Europe’s outliers, possessing a special affinity with the sea and a language more out of step than its European neighbours. Amidst its unique culture lies relatively undiscovered areas with Baroque maritime towns, remote villages and places that the fast pace of modern life has yet to reach. Additionally, for a small country, Portugal offers enormous diversity. Enjoy the sandy, sun-drenched beaches of the Algarve, the remote Alentejo and the wild country of the Geres, towards the Spanish border.
All of our walks are led by one of our expert guides, who will help navigate you through luscious trails and overcome trickier hikes, all while providing fascinating background information about your surroundings. Embarking on challenging walks doesn't mean your holiday won’t be relaxing, either; every night, you’ll stay in handpicked accommodation, enabling you to rest up in comfort after another great day of walking.
