Walking Holidays in Portugal

Portugal is one of Europe’s oldest countries and boasts some of its most varied landscapes to boot. Our selection of curated walking holidays in Portugal offers you the chance to cover some of its most dramatic areas, while indulging yourself in its homegrown port and delicious homemade pastries along the way.  

Some of our walking trips in Portugal concentrate on the islands – Madeira, and, far out into the Atlantic, the stunning Azores. Walking on Madeira is well-established, with a network of paths called levadas running all over this beautiful island. With its almost perfect climate, excellent food and dramatic but easily accessible mountains, Madeira is a perfect place for a week of walking.

And then there’s the Azores. These scattered islands hold some superb scenery, with volcanoes, hot springs and crater lakes. Mix these natural elements with its unique culture, and a walking holiday in the Azores is well worth considering.

For a drink first enjoyed by ancient civilisations, start off in Porto and travel through the UNESCO World Heritage Douro Valley on our walking and wine tour. Whichever of the walking tours in Portugal ticks your boxes, you’re on the right path with Exodus.
