DEPARTURE  

On this last day take your breakfast with a gorgeous view of the ocean. Then comes the time to say goodbye and we will pick you up at the hotel, according to your schedule.

After a great breakfast the day starts smooth crossing a forest and open land areas. Later by the beaches of Barriga, Cordoama and Castelejo the biodiversity is all around with reptiles, birds, mammals and amphibious. In the end you will arrive at Vila do Bispo town with traditional architecture, religious structures and the exploitation of natural resources. The local products, fruits and fresh fish are daily for sale on the municipal market, take a look and get some goodies for the next trip.

VILA DO BISPO to SAGRES

The landscape is flat and the vegetation low. Today you will be walking towards the most south western point of Continental Europe, where you have a small but excellent Museu dos Faróis, showcasing Sagres role in Portugal’s maritime history! This is an historical place where one can almost hear the echoes of the voices of sailors and pilgrims. Beyond here only the immense Atlantic Ocean remains a point of passage, arrival and encounters.

ARRIFANA to CARRAPATEIRA

Feel the power of the sea breaking over ancient cliffs and quiet sandy-stony beaches. Take your camera because you will need it in Canal beach when you see Pedra da Agulha, a gorgeous stone in the ocean. In a succession of hills and valleys you pass over the most aggressive and inaccessible side of this coastal area. End up at the white washed village Carrapateira, where history speaks through the fortress built with defensing purposes, still in the portuguese discoveries era.

CARRAPATEIRA to PEDRALVA

On this day between ocean and land the rural atmosphere will conquer your heart. On the steepest slopes you can admire the natural vegetation, virtually untouched by man with dense undergrowth arbutus and dozens of local plans and herbs. Soon you arrive to one of the most interesting places and accommodations. Pedralva is a little village that was nearly deserted a few years ago but now revived as charming Guest House Hamlet, keeping the original design together with charm and tradition.

Start your walk side by side with the river Seixe and the wetlands until you get to Odeceixe beach. The trail over the ocean will let you wander and offer superb views of the beach. Close to the end cross inland to-wards João Roupeiro Hamlet. All adventurers need good food and the most famous sweet potato in the world is here, from the main dishes to the regional pastry the options are endlessly delicious.

ROGIL to ALJEZUR

Today you cross several agricultural fields, some of sweet potato of course! And then follow a dirt road getting close to the Ocean. Awaiting you will be the beautiful beach and valley of Amoreira. Nevertheless there is still a last surprise for the day, Aljezur and its Moorish castle! This city founded by the Arabs on the 10th century and has an impressive archeologic site. Explore like a conqueror and go all the way up to the castle – the view is mesmerizing.

09.Portugal_Vicentina

ALJEZUR  to ARRIFANA

This day starts with a short transfer to the beach of Monte Clérigo from where your walk goes by the coast, passing by the mythical Ponta da Atalaia, a fantastic promontory where we can see many ruins of an ancient Moorish fortress. The trail after this point carries on along the top of the cliffs with mediterranean bushland, aromatic plants and coastal dunes. Touch nature step by step and then have a great rest in beautiful village of Arrifana.
