Algarve Holidays

Located in Portugal’s southernmost region is the beautiful Algarve coastline. Known for its whitewashed fishing villages, golden stretches of sand and scalloped turquoise-fringed bays, the region is blessed with a warm, sun-drenched climate nearly all year round, making it perfect for walking & cycling. Its rugged coastlines stretch for over 60km, from the Moorish old town of Faro along the west to the spectacular fishing village of Cacela Velha in the east. Discover this enchanting area of Portugal for yourself on our Algarve cycling & walking holidays.

On our Walking Portugal’s Coast and Beaches trip, discover the most hidden shores that have remained largely untouched by tourism. Beginning in the picture-perfect town of Vila Nova de Milfontes, this Algarve walking holiday takes you along quiet cliff trails in the region of Alentejo, that only the locals know towards the best beaches, authentic villages and sleepy traditional fishing towns.

Another Algarve holiday that allows you to explore Europe's most southwesterly point at Cabo de Sao Vicente is our Self-Guided Walking the Algarve's South West trip. Take a tranquil walk through the Carrapateira and Sinceira valleys, walk among eucalyptus trees and citrus orchards to Vila do Bispo and end the adventure overlooking Sagres’ impressive fortress, for an Algarve walking holiday to remember.
