What to expect?

DAY 1

  • Individual arrival to Faro Airport / Faro Train Station / Faro Bus Station.

  • Transfer to Carvoeiro Sol Hotel in Carvoeiro. Transfer time +/- 1 hour.

DAY 2

  • A fascinating walk between two popular resorts giving us insights into the rural villa culture of this region.

  • Our gentle tracks and quiet lanes take us through the sleepy rural countryside dotted with fields and trees and pass villas large and small where people from all over the world have made their home.

DAY 3

  • From Ferragudo we follow a stunning coastline westwards to Portimão and the stunning Praia da Rocha.

  • This area is famous for its exclusive and elaborate villas. Our walk along this spectacular coastline lets us see why. Take time during the walk to visit Ferragudo one of the most attractive and popular villages of the area.

DAY 4

  • This imaginatively designed walk in the rolling hillsides just inland from Carvoeiro enables us to visit and appreciate an area hidden from normal tourism, giving us an insight into the traditional Algarvian way of life as we walk through ancient farmland, smallholdings, orange orchards and the “dry” orchards so typical of this area, to finish in the attractive town of Lagoa.

DAY 5 - Free day

  • This is an ideal opportunity to relax and enjoy the attractions of the Algarve. You can walk/tour independently, or visit local places of interest.

DAY 6

  • We begin our walk in Lagoa, the center of the viticulture of the region. We walk south through the quiet, fertile, Barrocal landscape dotted with fields and smallholdings and watch our surroundings evolve as we near the coast and Carvoeiro into a landscape of beautiful villas set in gardens bedecked with flowers.

DAY 7

  • Today we offer a fantastic coastal walk taking in one of the most famous and dramatic sections of the Algarve coastline. Towering cliffs, sea caves and grottos, superb sandy coves and spectacular headlands including the much-photographed Benagil domed caves, lined with beautiful sandstone strata. All this can be seen during this stunning walk to finish along Carvoeiro’s renowned elevated boardwalk.
