Walk to a short break Holiday of three days stages by the most beautiful secrets of the Algarve. These trips will take you to through breath taking landscapes. In this Walking Holiday you will discover the Natural Park of Ria Formosa, the beauty of Faro, the traditional customs of the region, the art that persist in the countryside, ancient traces of human occupation, historical sites, and much more!

The Algarve is divided into three main regions: the South and the West Litoral facing the Atlantic, the Barrocal and the Serra that connects us to the Alentejo. Your Short Break starts in Albufeira, a city with old fishing tradition, where you’ll spend the first night. The second night is booked in Faro. Explore the capital of the Algarve and its attractions. The beautiful old town, the ancient Lethes theatre, the Carmo Church and the typical Algarve cuisine (UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage) are a few highlights of the city. The third and fourth night is booked in Tavira, one of the prettiest cities of the Algarve. Tavira is known by its many historic churches (37!) and also by the typical Algarve cuisine, with octopus specialities.

We will start our Hiking in the south coast of the Algarve through the Natural Park of Ria Formosa, one of the seven nature wonders of Portugal, by its lagoon system and its Sapal area, where we are able to see a huge variety of birds and wildlife. Following to the countryside we find the fantastic mountains of Caldeirão, a walk that leads us to ancient times where life happens slowly, by the customs and traditional arts that last. We continue out to meet ancient traces of human occupation, Alcoutim, where Portugal is bordered by Spain through the emblematic river Guadiana.

In this Short Break Walking Holiday you have the opportunity to experience several products and customs of the region, visit historical sights, admire the natural environment, hike through beautiful paths & mountains and mingle with the locals. Certainly an experience you will never forget!

Day 1 - Arrival

(Optional) Transfer with MegaSport from Faro airport (or train/bus station) to the hotel in Albufeira, place where you will begin the journey.

  

Day 2 - Ria Formosa (15.00 km)

By the sea we walk in the Natural Park of Ria Formosa, one of the seven natural wonders of Portugal. This Natural Park is characterized by the presence of sandy coastal dunes that protects a wide lagoon area that stretches along the coast from Ancão to Castro Marim. The combination of sweet water river with the tide of the estuary and salt marshes creates an idyllic and impressive landscape of dunes, islands and unique waterways, which is a natural refuge for life of wild birds.

  

Day 3 - Serra do Caldeirão (19.75 km)

We walk to the mountains of Caldeirão, area that connects the Algarve to the Alentejo region; these hills also called the "other Algarve" by their genuine people, by customs and traditional arts that last, for its landscapes with small villages of whitewashed houses, farm animals, by fruit and cork trees. This walk takes us to ancient times where life happens slowly.

 

Day 4 - Baixo Guadiana (24.00 km)

We continue out to meet ancient traces of human occupation, in Alcoutim, where Portugal is bordered by Spain through the emblematic river Guadiana. In this hike we can enjoy the unique and tranquil beauty of the natural Algarve; know the historical and cultural heritage; experience the customs and the traditional handicraft. The river Guadiana, always present, performing ancient trade routes and vast wealth shows us beautiful vessels coming from all over the world that there are waiting until new directions.
