Trekking

Our trekking programs are guided by a professional guide, concerned with your safety, who will provide you with an experience of discovering the region's history, heritage, geology, local flora and fauna.

 

The walks can be complemented with gastronomic and cultural experiences. We privilege contact with local people because we believe that this contact contributes to a more authentic and genuine experience.

The Region and the Routes

The Algarve is divided into three main sub-regions: the coast, the barrocal and the mountains. In all its extension we find protected areas, very important for their biodiversity, some of them also being crossing points for many species of migratory birds. 

We offer trekking programs all over the Algarve (and Baixo Alentejo).

Coast

It is on the coast that the main urban centres and the greatest economic activity are found. The landscape is diverse, composed of cliffs, extensive sands, marshes or dunes. In the Western Algarve predominate the calcareous cliffs with small beaches and in the Eastern Algarve predominate the flat and sandy soils. 

Some of the routes we do along the coast:

Golden Coast Cliffs
Lagos
7 Hanging Valleys
Carvoeiro
Leixão da Gaivota Trail
Ferragudo
The Natural Park of the Southwest Alentejo and Costa Vicentina

The Natural Park of the Southwest Alentejo and Costa Vicentina has a great richness and diversity of coastal habitats such as beaches, cliffs and rocks; and terrestrial habitats such as the scrublands, the heaths, the irrigated and dry cultures.

Its geographic and climatic specificities have given rise to a presence of endemic and rare flora.

The Vincentian Route, with its historical route and fishermen's trails is a great route that ends in the legendary Cape St. Vincent. To travel it is to discover a coast almost unchanged by man, with a succession of beaches, some shaped by the mouth of a stream, others with curious geological xystic or limestone formations, and others with important dune systems in constant mutation.

Monchique

The Monchique mountain range has volcanic origin. The climate is more humid and the soil is richer in nutrients. Monchique has several water springs and thermal springs that date back to Roman times.

The highest altitude in the Algarve is at the peak of Foia where, on days of good visibility, the views over the coast are magnificent.

Barrocal

In the interior, in the transition zone between the coast and the mountains, is the barrocal area. The barrocal is the "orchard of the Algarve", where vegetable gardens and agricultural land predominate. It is possible to find various crops of almond, fig, orange and carob trees. The soil is composed essentially of limestone and schist. The flora is rich and diverse and water flows abound.

 

Some of the routes we take in the Barrocal:

7 Fountains Trail
Querença
Rocha da Pena
Salir
Algibre Stream
