#4 Combined trails Algarve Part 2

This is a Magical coastal program using marked trails along the fishermen´s paths of Rota Vicentina in the Alentejo SW Atlantic Coast Region. The landscape is undulating and presents a great diversity, every day will offer a new challenge. Locals are humble and friendly, and gastronomy is outstanding, especially the fish, shellfish, and black pork.

This experience offers tranquility and a lot of distance walking by yourself, allowing you to explore the feeling of discovery in nature. This fishermen´s trail is unique in Europe and a great achievement to get to your best memories. The average distance per day is 20 km/12.5 miles, which makes it a 5-6h gentle walk. If you don´t like sand or dirt tracks, this is not your kind of program.

Self-guided hiking is an adventure without any stress.

You travel where you want, with who you want, and when you want without having to worry about the organization or the logistics.

We live and run our programs in the most beautiful part of Portugal where Rota Vicentina exists.

ITINERARY: Arrival to Zambujeira do Mar

Briefing at the first hotel

The arrival to Zambujeira do Mar gets us in a very cozy fishing village, very appreciated by the Portuguese for holidays, because of the beaches, surf, and fresh fish. Big rough cliffs where the land meets the sea, that’s the scenery of one of the most beautiful Portuguese urban beaches, here in Zambujeira do Mar, a wonderful place to have dinner and enjoy the sunset and the stars.

We are experts on hiking and cycling holidays in the SW of Portugal, along the Rota Vicentina for INDIVIDUALS and SMALL GROUPS. We are founders of this route and based in the area of Vila Nova de Milfontes. Proudly working from the earth of the SW Coast of Portugal. Book locally contributing to a circular economy. 95% of our programs are self-guided, however, we also provide guided (FRENCH, GERMAN, and ENGLISH) and tailor-made programs in this area. Feel free to get in touch! We are proud to share our little SW corner of Europe.


Walking the Rota Vicentina was an experience well worth the effort. We were often on the coast where the scenery was spectacular, the beaches lovely and had mostly cloudless days (late September). The trail varied from being very sandy along cliff tops to rocky paths and roads both gravel and paved. Markings were mostly easy to follow and it was great to arrive (tired) in a different community every night. It felt as though we saw a unique part of Portugal. Our luggage would be waiting for us and we would have had only a small day pack to carry. In the evening It was not difficult to find really good places to eat. Would strongly recommend this trip.
