Experience Itinerary

Arrive in Costa Alentejana where your accommodation Casas do Moinho Bed & Breakfast invites you to the true rest. Enjoy the silence, the swimming pool or the delicious meals at the restaurant.

Your hiking adventure starts in Odeceixe. Walk along the Seixe river and discover the Odeceixe beach, with its small sand peninsula. Continue on along the coast and experience the wild ocean ploughing into the rocks and slowly carving them into incredible sculptures. Change the direction and head to the interior passing by the agricultural fields and feel the nature around you. As you arrive in Odeceixe, have a rest and enjoy a delicious typical meal.
Sleep in Casas do Moinho (13km + 300m)

Start this day with a short 10min car ride to Rogil. This small village will be the starting point of your hike through the peaceful and unspoiled nature of Alentejo. Unpaved tracks will lead you to the coast, which you will follow until you arrive at Praia da Amoreira, a golden sand beach at the mouth of the river Aljezur.
Head inland along the Amoreira valley and arrive at Aljezur. This city was founded by the Arabs in the 10th century and has an impressive archaeological site. Explore like a conqueror and go all the way up to the castle to enjoy a flabbergasting view. A small transfer will take you from Aljezur to Herdade Monte do Sol.
Sleep in Herdade Monte do Sol (11km + 300m)

After breakfast a small transfer will take you to Aljezur. From Aljezur you will hike in roughly coastal direction to the beach of Monte Clérigo from where your walk goes along 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 until the beautiful village of Arrifana. A small walk and you will reach Herdade Monte do Sol.
Sleep in Herdade Monte do Sol (16km + 300m)

You will start your walk directly from Herdade Monte do Sol. As you walk along the coast, feel the power of the sea breaking over the ancient cliff. Find Pedra da Agulha, a gorgeous boulder in the ocean. End up at the whitewashed village Carrapateira, where history speaks through the fortress built for defending purposes, still in the Portuguese discoveries era. You will be transferred to Herdade Monte do Sol at the end of the day to have a well-deserved rest.
Sleep at Herdade Monte do Sol (20km + 500m).

On this day, between ocean and land, the rural atmosphere will conquer your heart. A 20min transfer will take you to Carrapateira where your tour will start. On the steepest slopes, you can admire the natural vegetation. Soon you'll arrive at one of the most interesting places and accommodations. Pedralva is a little village, nearly deserted a few years ago, and now revived as charming guest house hamlet, keeping the original design together with charm and tradition.
Sleep at Pedralva Village (18km + 400m).

The landscape is flat and the vegetation low. After a small transfer to Vila do Bispo, today you will be walking towards the south-westernmost point of Continental Europe, where you have a small but excellent Museu dos Faróis, showcasing Sagres’ role in Portugal’s maritime history! Beyond here only the immense Atlantic Ocean remains a point of passage, arrival and encounters. After the walk and after discovering Sagres, you will be transferred to the beautiful city of Lagos.
Sleep at Casa Mãe (14km + 200m).

After a small transfer to Burgau, the final day of hiking will feature a coastal hike on top of cliffs of southern Portugal, passing by quiet and peaceful beaches and landscapes. Close to Lagos you will encounter Ponta da Piedade, a group of rock formations formed by dense eroded cliffs that have carved out rocky pillars, natural tunnels and hidden caves, where you can find one of the most beautiful natural sceneries of the Algarve coast. 
Sleep at Casa Mãe (18km + 200m).

After your last typical breakfast, it’s time to say goodbye and we will pick you up at the hotel to transfer you to the airport.
