Your itinerary

​​Today you'll fly to Faro and on arrival we will transfer you to your hotel in Praia da Rocha. The hotel faces out onto the golden sand and the rest of the day is yours to settle into your room and explore your surroundings. Get to know your fellow travellers this evening over a welcome drink and dinner.

Walk 10km/6.2mi - 6 Hours

Our walk today will take in the beautiful area to the north of Silves as we join a trail which passes through rolling hills and green valleys. Expect incredible views across the countryside, and hopefully pleasant weather - the Algarve is blessed with a year-round mild climate.
Later, we'll find ourselves at an historic hilltop windmill, where we can gaze down to the ancient Castle of Silves below. We'll then continue through a landscape dotted with charming smallholdings where farmers will be going about their daily business. We'll finish back in Silves, where the local cafés will be the perfect place for a rest and a snack if you're hungry.

Walk 11km/6.8mi - 3 1/2 hours

A good breakfast will set you up for today's walk to the charming village of Luz, from where we'll follow the coastal path to Lagos. Along the way, you'll have the choice of making a detour to Ponta da Piedade, to see the dramatic sea caves here.
Lagos can trace its history back to the Roman Empire, so on arrival look for fascinating relics such as the 5th century town walls and the ruins of an ancient slave market. The pretty marina is a draw for visitors and locals alike, and it's a great place for us to stop for a drink.

Walk 14km​/8.6mi - 5 hours
After breakfast this morning, we're heading inland for our walk, stopping in the picturesque, tranquil villages of Barão de São João and Barão de São Miguel. As we stroll, admire pretty white houses and ornate chimneys built in the traditional Algarve style – evidence of the area's strong Moorish influence.
Back at the hotel, we'll gather to enjoy dinner.

Walk 17km/10.5mi - 5 hours

It's Christmas Day and after enjoying breakfast we're off on a lovely walk through some of the Algarve's most scenic landscapes. Keep your camera handy, you're sure to want to capture what you see! Our route will take us along the sandy shores and rugged headlands that run from Portimão to Alvor, and on to the expansive stretch of golden sand at Praia da Rocha. The colourful rock strata - a contrasting mix of white and red limestone - creates incredible natural works of art, and the area is a haven for wildlife, including flamingos.
Back at the hotel this evening, we're going to celebrate Christmas with a gala dinner with free-flowing wine.

Walk 7.6km/4.7mi -  2 hours
​Our final day in the Algarve is sure to be full of highlights as we head to Sagres, whose dramatic landscape features jutting cliffs, wild seas and wide-open skies. It's from here that explorers during the Age of Discovery set off on voyages across the Atlantic Ocean, so you can stand in their shoes today.
Enjoy a stop at Cabo de São Vicente, whose bleakly beautiful cliffs mark the most westerly point in the Algarve. One look and you'll understand why it was once thought that the world stopped here.
We'll gather once more back at the hotel for a farewell dinner.

​After breakfast today we'll transfer you to the airport for your flight back to the UK.
