Walking holidays in Portugal

From Land's End to the Algarve's Wild West, walking holidays in Portugal cover it all. This beautiful country is blessed with diverse landscapes and sub-tropical climates where exotic birds and colourful flowers are abundant. Limestone cliffs overlook the coastline, busy fishing ports and historic maritime towns, where you can immerse yourself in the local culture and try some of the fresh fish.

Further afield off the north coast of Africa, the volcanic island of Madeira is one of the prettiest in the north Atlantic Ocean. Comprising sleepy villages, tropical flowers and unique wildlife, Madeira boasts a mild, year-round climate that makes walking in Portugal simply perfect.

Alternatively, our walking holidays in Portugal feature a guided walking tour of Porto and the Douro Valley. Wine lovers will be in their element as we walk among the valleys and vineyards of the UNESCO World Heritage Douro Valley and taste some of the finest wines in the country.

Food lovers will be equally as impressed with Portugal's delicious dishes that can be sampled in the many restaurants of each region and the hotels you'll stay at en route. Tuck into the local cheeses and tasty chouricos that the country is renowned for. On our Algarve Wild West tour you can also cool off at the end of the day as each of the hotels you'll stay at have their own pool.

Guided and self-guided walking holidays in Portugal include accommodation for twin-centre and multi-centre trips.
