Tour Overview

Boasting one of the most beautiful and well-preserved coastlines of Europe, blessed with wild pristine beaches, towering cliffs, great biodiversity, remote whitewashed traditional villages and a temperate climate, Portugal’s Rota Vicentina is the ultimate hikers and ramblers' paradise. We have hand-picked the very best walks from the 125km selection of coastal trails that span the tranquil Portuguese region of Alentejo and along the few remaining undeveloped shores of the Algarve. Starting from the picturesque town of Vila Nova de Milfontes, we walk on quiet cliff trails used by locals to access the beaches and best fishing spots, and end in the famous town of Sagres. We stay overnight in three different villages chosen to provide easy access to/from the trails each day. The refreshing coastal breeze and inviting landscape make walking in this remote corner of Europe truly reinvigorating.

Highlights

  • Experience being immersed in impressive landscapes: dramatic cliffs, forgotten sandy beaches and quiet trails

  • Reach Cape of St Vincent, Europe's most south western point

  • Stay overnight in authentic whitewashed villages including Sagres

icon Day 1 : Start in the charming seaside town of Vila Nova de Milfontes
Location:

  Vila Nova de Milfontes


Meals Included:

  No Meals


This trip starts in the seaside town of Vila Nova de Milfontes, located in
the heart of the beautiful Alentejo coastline approx 2 hrs from Faro and 2.5
hrs from Lisbon. Still largely undiscovered by foreign visitors, the town is
delightfully Portuguese, filled with cobbled streets, whitewashed houses and
scenic views across the Mira River. It is also the start point of incredible
coastal trails leading to vast stretches of wild and deserted beaches.
Despite its remote location, it has an extensive selection of restaurants,
and a lively nightlife making it a perfect base for the first three days of
the tour.

icon Day 2 : Rewarding coastal walk to Almograve; transfer back to Vila Nova de Milfontes.
Location:

  Almograve


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


We start the week with a relatively short coastal hike offering superb views
throughout. Leaving from the hotel, we cross by boat and admire the views of
the River Mira meeting the ocean, with the small white-washed town and lush
hillsides in the background. There are stretches along today's trail where
native vegetation displays all its diversity and other areas where it has
been wiped out by a most aggressive exotic plant – the Acacia. At times
farmland stretches right down to the ocean, at others the imprint of human
habitation is local, non-commercial fishing or small stone age quarries
hidden amongst the dunes. Between March and October you’ll be able to
spot  the many types of swift - Alpine, Pallid and Common  - that all nest
along this coast. Interestingly, swifts spend over 90% of their life in the
air as they feed, mate and sleep in flight - they are so well adapted to
flying that landing on the ground may be fatal. The walk ends in
the peaceful small village of Almograve, perfect for an unhurried afternoon
stroll or peaceful pause before we return by private transfer to Vila Nova de
Milfontes.

 

icon Day 3 : Walk from Cabo Sardão to Zambujeira do Mar along dramatic high cliffs, nesting spot of more than twenty species of bird.
Location:

  Cabo Sardão


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


Small fishing harbours, sand dunes, the scent of pine tree forests and the
sight, seen nowhere else in the world, of storks nesting on the cliffs make
this today's walk truly special. We start with a short transfer (approx.
20mins) to Cabo Sardão lighthouse which was peculiarly built the wrong way
round. The entry door is facing the ocean and the lighthouse is facing
inland! This is the start of today's trail which follows the high cliffs
exposed to the constant salty ocean waves and winds, and favourite nesting
spot for over twenty species of bird. These include the Jackdaw, Shag, Common
Kestrel, White Stork, and the Peregrine Falcon, the fastest recorded animal
in the world,  reaching speeds of up to 300 km/h when diving. We will
have time to stop and watch these birds, especially during spring, when it
is possible to quietly observe their mating rituals and the careful building
of their nests. We pass Lapa das Pombas, a tiny non-commercial fishing
harbour, before concluding the walk in the sleepy seaside village
of Zambujeira do Mar and its wonderful beach. In the afternoon we return to
Vila Nova de Milfontes by transfer (approx. 30mins).

icon Day 4 : Coastal walk to Odeceixe; enjoy the distinctive rock and cliff formations with some of Portugal’s best beaches; transfer to Vale da Telha.
Location:

  Odeceixe


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


This morning we transfer (approx. 40 mins) to Carvalhal beach, the start of
today's walk. The cliff face on this stretch of the walk is of particular
interest. It is composed of schist and greywacke which results from the
consolidation of sand, clay and volcanic ashes accumulated on the bottom of
an ancient ocean over 300 million years ago

This whole coastal region is believed by many to have a particular energy,
and it was here that the Fado diva Amália Rodrigues sought refuge and
inspiration for her songs. Along the walk we may also spot traces
of nocturnal mammals including the Egyptian Mongoose (locally known as
“Escalabardo”), weasel, Beech Marten (also known as “Papalvo”),
badger, genet and rabbits. Before reaching Odeceixe, we take a break on
Ponta em Branco (white summit) so named for the colour of the sediments that
form its summit, marking the border between the Alentejo and the Algarve
regions. This is considered one of the most scenic points in the entire
region with views over Odeceixe beach, with the mountain top of Fóia and
Monchique as a backdrop. We transfer to the cosy hotel near Arrifana beach
and enjoy a refreshing dip in the swimming pool, or a drink on the sunny
terrace before dinner.

 

icon Day 5 : Free day; enjoy an optional circular walk to Arrifana beach or other activities such as surfing and horse riding. 
Location:

  Praia de Monte Clérigo


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


Today is a free day to choose from the many optional activities available in
the area. You may decide to go on a self-guided circular walk passing the
beaches of Monte Clérigo, Pontal da Atalaia​, as well as the famous
surfing ​beach of Arrifana​. Alternatively you may book a surfing class
or a horse riding excursion along the spectacular coastline. Whilst your tour
leader will not acompany you on your free day, they will be able to help you
book the optional activities. We also suggest a visit to the small market
town of Aljezur, famous for its whitewashed houses and cobbled streets
and dominated by the ruins of a tenth century Moorish castle.

icon Day 6 : Circular walk around Carrapateira; enjoy stunning ocean views and the sandy beaches of Bordeira and Amado; transfer to Sagres.
Location:

  Sagres


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


Today we travel further south and transfer (approx. 30 mins) to the village
of Carrapateira, the start of today's short circular walk. Along the circuit,
we come across various viewpoints with superb views of the sandy beaches of
Bordeira and Amado as well as the ruins of an ancient Islamic fishermen’s
settlement. On the first part of the trail, we walk through undulating dunes
carpeted by lush vegetation and aromatic wild plants including thyme, yellow
amaranths, rosemary, lavender, crowberries, blue pimpernel and sea lavender.
We then walk along the limestone cliffs for most of the trail and may
get the opportunity to spot cormorants, a wintering bird and expert angler,
consuming almost 1 kg of fish per day. In the afternoon we transfer (approx.
20 mins) to the village of Sagres, at the extreme western tip of the
Algarve. Although primarily known as a surfing destination (and surprisingly
not the Portuguese beer of the same name), Sagres has a lot more to offer.
You may decide to spend the rest of the day in one of the sheltered pristine
beaches.

icon Day 7 : Final cliff walk to Cape St. Vincent, the most southwesterly point in continental Europe; afternoon optional visit to Sagres fort.
Location:

  Cape St. Vincent


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


Surrounded by foaming Atlantic breakers, Cabo de Sao Vicente marks the most
south-westerly point of Europe. The final walk from Sagres out to the edge of
the continent should prove to be one of the highlights of the week.
Surrounded by coastal scenery, we follow a wild trail along sandy paths and
gorse-strewn meadows to the very edge of the Iberian Peninsula. Setting off
from our hotel, we make our way to the start point of our walk, near Beliche
Beach. We set out across towering cliffs and ravines covered with native
vegetation. We pass by the golden beach of Beliche, and, then after a short
section inland, Telheiro beach, a place of extraordinary geological interest
thanks to the rock composition of the cliffs. The last section of the path
continues along the cliff top before a memorable arrival at Cape St. Vincent
where we find a lighthouse, museum and small bar offering wonderful photo
opportunities. It's only a short transfer (5 mins) back to Sagres where we
can choose to visit the imposing sea fortress at sunset or relax with a cold
drink on the waterfront, watching fishermen mending their nets. You may
decide to book an optional dolphin-watching excursion along the coast
(weather and season dependent). 

icon Day 8 : End Sagres
Location:

  Sagres


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


This trip ends in Sagres in the morning of Day 8.

Expectations were high after a two-year delay from our original booking.

It was worth the wait! The scenery was spectacular, the weather was perfect and our conditioning didn't let us down.

This is a relatively unknown gem for many people - and one not to be missed.

Popular with hikers and cyclists alike, hiking definitely gives you the best cliff views.

The sea views and fresh breezes, coupled with the dune walks, made the trip.

You'll walk across beaches and dunes, through small bush and forest areas, and across trickling brooks and boardwalks, with plenty of local flora and fauna.

If you are a photographer or bird watcher, this is the trip for you.

This was my first trip to Portugal - I'm already planning the next Exodus Portugal trip! less....

This is a great trip if you enjoy the sea air with great views over the clifftops.

A few days since our wonderful week walking Portugal’s coast and beaches and missing it already.

Luis and Alex were the perfect guides, with exceptional local knowledge and a phenomenal work ethic! Breath taking scenery and unspoilt beaches, and great way to get fit! Nesting storks and peregrine falcons were such a bonus! Fine hotels throughout, topped off with a touch of luxury in Sagres, restaurants and food excellent all shared with a great group of like-minded travellers.

A2z travel and Exodus exceeded my expectations!!! Portugal is an amazing country and our tour guides took us to spots we definately would have missed if we traveled on our own.

This was my first guided tour- I was nervous it would be very basic and boring.

Our trip was the farthest thing from boring! We hiked, toured, ate and ate and ate some more, drank great wine and port and more unique spirits.

So many laughs shared with very fun people! I will go in more trips with Luis and his team of exceptional guides.

If you are on the fence-go for it!!!! I will return to Portugal for sure.

Relaxing walking in a relatively undiscovered part of Portugal - beautiful coastal scenery, great food (lots of fish!), great company.

Our little group was SO happy to get away post-pandemic! The walking was highly enjoyable, and relatively undemanding for an Exodus trip - though some of the sand dunes can be good for the thighs! The first two hotels were fine, but the Sagres place is a REAL treat - a fabulous place to end the trip.

I really did not want to come home.

This trip was the ultimate de-stressor.

Fantastic walks along deserted beaches and cliff top paths with breathtaking views of hidden bays and waves crashing against the rocks, expertly led by Luis and Alex who could not have done more to make this such a fabulous and fun holiday.

The accommodation was well chosen and of a good standard and with the help of our guides, we ate in style every evening.

We would highly recommend this trip and are pleased to have had yet another excellent Exodus experience.

It is incredible how much difference to my wellbeing a week away made.

We had incredible guides in Luis and Irella, jaw dropping rugged scenery and an exceptional group.

Each day was different as we walked on the rugged cliffs or on the beaches to the Atlantic Ocean.

I was mesmerised by its beauty and I felt as though my mind had been cleansed by the sea, light breeze and sunshine.

Looking back, i can now tell you the stress of lockdown and london life and not going anywhere for 18 months had really took its toll and this trip bought me back to me and made me have faith that the world will be ok again.

Absolutely loved it and just what the doctor ordered.

Im home and feel renewed and rejuvenated.

Thank you Luis, my wonderful group, beautiful Portugal and Exodus! less....


Great week - stunning scenery!

Another great Exodus trip. Breathtaking scenery, pleasant walks & good company made it a very enjoyable week.

"I was walking on the main beach for 2 hours and didn't see one other tourist. I was doing a tour the next day and we were in a very small group of 5 foreigners. I love being 'the only' tourist! "

@jasononcamera's Top Tips

"Take your time to walk on the black sand beach to watch the local life and definitely visit the Green Canyon. Not many people have heard of this place but it is absolutely amazing!"

Bali

Indonesia

Photography

What do you love most about Bali?

"Of course, Bali is a very popular destination and sometimes it's packed with (too many) tourists, but it's touristy for a reason. It's such a beautiful island with so many picture-perfect places!"

A 'MUST' whilst you're there?

"My favourite activity in Bali was climbing Mount Batur in the middle of the night to watch the sunrise on top of the volcano. We were even lucky enough to see Mount Rinjani on Lombok in the distance! "

Must pack items for Bali

"Don't forget to bring warmer clothes! Especially in Northern Bali, it can get colder and you will need a jacket for sure! This photo was taken on top of a mountain and trust me, it was pretty cold..."

Bonus...

"Combine your Bali trip with a few days on Nusa Penida. Every photographer wants to take a photo of the T-rex-shaped cliff but... watch out when flying your drone. The signal is very sketchy!"

"Java is a true hidden gem where you can still experience the real Indonesia and its culture, without the mass tourism of Bali."

"While Mt. Bromo is the most famous volcano to visit on Java, Ijen Crater is definitely my favourite! Start hiking at 2 am with a gas mask around your neck and wait for sunrise on top of the crater ring."

Does Java have white sand beaches?

"YES! I had the best time on the undiscovered island of Karimunjawa. It's an absolute must when visiting Java!"

What is your wildest memory of your time on Java?

"After watching the sunrise at Mt. Bromo, we were driving through the Black Sand Dessert and I was flying my drone while sitting on top of the Jeep with 2 of my friends. I will never forget that!"

@jasononcamera's Top Tips

"Talk to the locals (they are so friendly), try the street food (it's so good and so cheap) & last but not least: take your time to take it all in because you will get blown away by this beautiful island!"

What do you love most about Faroe Islands?

"Visiting the Kallur Lighthouse on Kalsoy island was surreal. Plush green landscapes and adoring sheep families join you on this 1-hour hike. I had it entirely to myself too!"

@ck_the_explorer's Top Tips

"Views like this are found by hiking up to Klakkur, a viewpoint near Klaksvik in the Faroe Islands. Seeing the salmon cages in the distance and Faroe's 2nd largest city is quite the experience."

What do you love most about Faroe Islands?

"The old town Torshavn, in the capital of the Faroe Islands, still has old turfed homes in perfect condition. These houses are reminiscent of Faroese ancestors!"
