Enjoy an excellent variety of walking on Portugal’s islands, coasts and hills
Revel in the warmth of the winter sun as you explore the levadas and beautiful gardens of Madeira, the ‘Pearl of the Atlantic’. Relax as you stroll to charming fishing villages along the pretty coast of the Algarve. Discover the green hills of the Serra de Sintra and walk on the rugged Atlantic coast accompanied by the sound of crashing waves or explore the exotic Azores, for centuries a staging post in the mid-Atlantic.
Take time to explore the history and culture of this fascinating country. Find palaces and Roman ruins in the Eastern Algarve learn about the history of wine making in Madeira, or walk along the dramatic limestone cliffs of the Western Algarve. Lisbon makes an absorbing day out with its wealth of colourful buildings and interesting maritime past. Look out for wildlife too: the salt pans on the Algarve coast near Tavira teem with fantastic bird life.
Relax, explore and discover in the delightful landscapes of Portugal.
