Overview

Book
Its a side of Portugal you never dreamed existed, where gently rolling hills slope to fertile farms dotted with cork trees, olive trees, and green vineyards where red sandstone walls plunge down to dream-like beaches and roiling Atlantic waters. This is Alentejo, meaning beyond the Tagus River to locals. We think you'll agree its also beyond beautiful, rustic and magnificent rural lands that rise to stone villages and breathtaking coastal landscapes. In the northern reaches of Alto Alentejo, trace the medieval trails and old smugglers roads of Serra de So Mamede Natural Park through cork oak woodlands and chestnut groves, pausing to explore tiny hamlets and imposing castles. In the southern region of Baixo Alentejo, follow the Rota Vicentina along towering seaside cliffs, nesting ground for a huge array of bird life. Rest your feet in tiny fishing villages and soak them in the refreshing waters of pristine beaches accessible by rope ladder and stair. Along the way, break up your walks with full-day explorations of medieval vora, remarkably preserved and a delight to explore, and Lisbon, whose narrow old world warrens and soulful fado singers are steeped in tradition and history. Join us to experience the true essence of Portugal by foot.

Highlights

    • Walk medieval pathways that have long linked the charming stone villages of Serra de So Mamede Natural Park.
    • Follow a local guide through the cultural treasure of vora, a magnificent time capsule of the medieval age and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
    • Trace the spectacular Rota Vicentina along high Atlantic cliffs, stopping to explore fishing villages and soak your feet in refreshing waters.
    • Conclude your guided tour of Lisbon with a live performance of fado, Portugals traditional music of longing, during a special dinner.
