Walking Algarve - Monchique
The green mountain chain Serra de Monchique offers a wonderful scenic beauty with valleys full of wildflowers, rhododendrons, mimosa, pine trees, chestnut trees, cork oaks and fertile terraces.
Walking Algarve in natural park Monchique is rewarded with a wonderful view, once you have reached the top of Fóia (900 m), the highest mountain. The second highest mountain Picota (773 m) also offers a breathtaking view of the coastline of South Portugal.
Walking Algarve - Vicentina
Parque natural Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina is situated at the Atlantic Coast of Portugal. Walking Algarve in this natural park leads you through an unspoiled nature with special birds, plants and blooming bushes.
Walking tours near Carrapateira and Aljezur lead you through rough cliffs, hidden fishing harbours and abandoned beaches. In the far southwest Portugal you will walk through an open landscape, over red-brown earth which contrasts sharply with the blue ocean.
Walking Algarve – South Coast Portugal
The sheltered South Coast of Portugal has quiet waves, enabling you to make wonderful, relaxing walking tours. A wonderful coast with golden yellow cliffs is situated between the tourist seaside resorts Portimão and Albufeira; an unexpected oasis of rest. Between Burgau and Lagos a wonderful footpath will lead you over the cliffs with, inland, wonderful plateaus full of wildflowers.
During your walking tours over the cliffs you will observe the Monchique Mountains far away and you will walk through valleys with steep terraces full of plum-, cherry-, peach- and fig trees. The red-brown trunks of the recently barked cork oaks contrast wonderfully with the green forests.
