Having been a long-time favourite for golfers, surfers and winter sun-seekers, Portugal’s Algarve can hardly be described as a well-kept secret. However, venture just a short distance from its developed southern corner, and you’ll soon discover the fabulously untouched “wild west” – a little known, un-populated region of deserted beaches, lush forests, white villages and tiny fishing communities where life continues as it has for centuries. This is the “real” Algarve, where amazing bird and plant life flourish, and where every visitor is welcomed and treated as a novelty!
This morning, leading UK walking and cycling specialist, Headwater, has announced its decision to feature the hidden Algarve for the first time in its winter 2013/14 portfolio. Both walkers and cyclists have the opportunity to follow a 7-day circular loop from coastal Sagres taking in en route walled Lagos, the lovingly restored village of Pedralva and spectacular, ocean-facing Cabo San Vicente on the very edge of the Iberian peninsula.
The full walking itinerary and the full cycling itinerary are both now available on-line, with first departures scheduled for October 2013. As always, with Headwater, guests travel at their own pace, following the company’s meticulously researched, interest-packed route notes as dedicated staff take care of all luggage transfers. Hotels throughout are of the highests standard – and, unusually for a tour operator, Headwater even provide direct click-throughs to each hotel’s reviews on www.tripadvisor.com in order that guests can take independent advice before booking.
For bookings and further information, please call Headwater 0845 322 4672 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
