Day 1 Sagres
Make your way to your hotel at Sagres. Set atop a dramatic headland, Sagres has a beautiful location with far reaching sea views.
Day 2 Sagres to Pedralva
After a short drive, begin walking along a section of the Fisherman’s Trail. Admire the dramatic views of Amado Beach from the cliffs above, before heading down to the village of Carrapateira for a lunch stop. After lunch, follow the Rota Vicentina, passing one of the Algarve’s finest viewpoints whilst following the course of the River Sinceira. Arrive at charming Pedralva this afternoon; the village is a faithfully restored depiction of a traditional, rural Portuguese settlement.
Day 3 Pedralva
Today is free to explore as you please. You may wish to take a clifftop walk back along to Amado beach, or take a smaller loop walk along Marreiros plateau to enjoy views of the Algarve’s highest point.
Day 4 Pedralva to Vila do Bispo
After breakfast, walk through pine and eucalyptus forests, again following the Rota Vicentina. From here, there is a choice of two routes; either follow the trail straight down to the pretty village of Vila do Bispo, or alternatively take a longer horseshoe loop which heads through Vicentina Natural Park to Praia da Barriga, a dramatic beach which is perfect for a picnic stop.
Day 5 Vila do Bispo
Today is free to explore as you please. You may wish to take a bus to Lagos and explore this cosmopolitan coastal town, or choose to further explore the coastline. Stroll inland through a landscape of rolling hills and gentle valleys.
Day 6 Vila do Bispo to Cabo de São Vicente/Sagres
Start the day by walking along the wild and unpopulated route to Cabo de São Vicente, the most south westerly point of Europe. Along the way you will be spoilt with amazing coastal scenery and can enjoy the view from the lighthouse at the Cape. Take the short transfer back to Sagres where the rest of the day is yours to spend at leisure.
