About this trip

This is an 8 Day Guided Walk on the Rota Vicentina "Fisherman's Trail". Starting from Porto Covo and finishing at  Aljezur . 


Its a mix of wonderful Coastal walks on Portugal's east coast and some inland trails. We have broken down the walks to suit most abilities and to take in some really scenic locations.

Rota Vicentina

The Rota Vicentina sits on the south west of Portugal just below Lisbon. The trail starts in the Portuguese region of Alentejo.

It is a long distance walk with choice along the coast line called the Fishermen’s Trail or slightly in land called the Historical Way.


About The Trails:

Both trails are broken up into suitable walking stages. This part of  Portugal is beautiful with wonderful cliff walks and sandy beaches.  There are many small and colourful coastal towns where you can enjoy  some great seafood along the way.

The trails have been developed over the past few years by the local  communities and associations and it is a wonderful place to explore.

I have travelled to many parts of the world and I have hiked in many countries. Most of these experiences have been enjoyable and satisfying. I put the Hilltoptreks hike on the Kerry Way up there with the very best of all my hikes. Definitely in the top three. Serious but relaxed hiking, stunning views along Kenmare Bay and into Sneem and Caherdaniel, enjoyable and easy company and no fuss! I cannot recommend it highly enough. A dream hike. So congrats to Terry and Hilltoptreks. Thank you! Philomena
