Self-Guided Walking Holidays in Portugal
Portugal's varied landscapes provide unrivalled opportunities for memorable walking holidays. The lush landscape of Portugal's north is rich agricultural and viticultural country. The central and southern regions are less green, yet they support olive groves, vineyards, and citrus trees. In spring they are a sight to behold when the almond blossoms are in full bloom.
Right in the middle of the Atlantic, the island of Madeira is a haven of natural beauty. The exotic colours of the flowers stand out from among the blue sea and the emerald green vegetation; this is an archipelago where two thirds are a protected area and where the largest Laurisilva forest in the world is located.
Our self-guided walking holidays are fully flexible which means you can normally start your walk on any day during the season and customise by adding extra days for resting or sightseeing.
As you're walking independently, you're free to follow the trail at your own pace. You set your own pace as you are not limited by the constraints of group travel.
You are free to shorten or lengthen your walk as the terrain permits and can even take a day off, although you may need to travel onto your next accommodation by taxi or public transport in order to do so. As long as you are reasonably active you will be able to find a suitable tour and all of our tours are graded to help you choose the right walk for you.
How it works
From route notes and maps, to accommodation and luggage transfers - you're never on your own.
At the end of a day's walk you will be well looked after in our comfortable, boutique accommodation.
