Itinerary

Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

Day 1 - Join trip in Tavira

Our trip starts in the delightful town of Tavira. Our welcoming hotel is within walking distance of the old centre, restaurants and bars. Its location offers great views over the town and river from the rooftop bar and outside pool area.

For those arriving on time our Leader plans to meet you in the hotel reception at 7pm for the welcome meeting and for those that wish, there is the chance to go out for dinner. There are no activities planned today, so you are free to arrive in Tavira at any time. If you would like to receive a complimentary airport transfer today, you'll need to arrive at Faro Airport (FAO) which is around 30 minutes' drive. Should you miss the meeting, your leader will inform you of any essential information as soon as you catch up.

If your flight arrives earlier in the day, our hotel is the prefect base from which to explore the cobbled streets on foot discovering the pretty tiled houses and there are plentiful alfresco dining options.

Grade: Premium Hotel

Meals Provided: None

Day 2 - Walk in Ria Formosa National Park on Tavira Island

Today we explore the Tavira coast, walking through the old town out to the pier to take a 10 minute boat journey across to Tavira island. Tavira island forms part of Rio Formosa Estuarine National Park, a long strip of salt marshes and lagoons stretching from Faro to the Spanish Border. We walk along the unspoiled beaches, observing the wetland ecosystem and coastal habitats, past; mudflats, sea rushes and the native curry plant (with yellow flowers that smells like curry powder!) The area is a paradise for birdwatches and we'll see flamingos feeding in the shallow water. Our walk continues along the beautiful Praia dos Barrills, a long white sandy beach backed by sand dunes. The most noticeable and unique feature of this beach is the anchor 'graveyard'. Dozens of anchors have been planted in the dunes, an eerie reminder of the regions once thriving tuna fishing industry. The fishermen huts have now been converted into cafes, restaurants and shops. From Terra Estreita Beach we take boat back to the mainland, to the small fishing village of Santa Luzia from where we walk back to town.

There will be time this afternoon time to explore more of Tavira. Take in the view up river from the seven-arched Roman Bridge, although actually Moorish in its origin, throughout the centuries the bridge has provided vital access across the River Gilao.

Today's 15 kilometre walk is expected to take approximately four hours with a total ascent and descent of 70 metres.

Grade: Premium Hotel

Day 3 - Walk along the Guadiana river to Odeleite, return by bus and train

Today we drive (30 min) to the small village of Azinhal. We walk through gentle hills and low rising vegetation along the banks of Guadiana river (which marks the Spanish border) and on to the small old fashioned village of Odeleite.

From Odeleite we drive south to San Antonio de Vila Real. We take some time here for a coffee overlooking the main square and stroll around the pedestrianized streets leading to the river, before travelling back to Tavira by train.

Today's 13 kilometre walk is expected to take approximately four-and-a-half hours with a total ascent of 170 metres and descent of 205 metres.

Accommodation:

Grade: Premium Hotel

Single room available

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 4 - Walk to Pego de Inferno waterfall

This morning we walk from Tavira following the River Sequa to through bamboo trees and lemon orchards with views across the Asseca Valley, to reach Pego de Inferno waterfall. There is time to rest and take a swim in the lagoon before heading back to Tavira by taxis.

Today's 11 kilometre walk is expected to take approximately three-and-a-half hours with a total ascent and descent of 230 metres.

Accommodation:

Grade: Premium Hotel

Single room available

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 5 - Free day. Opportunity to relax or walk the Via Algarviana trail.

Today is a free day to relax on the local beaches or explore the region more. It is possible to take an inland walk following the Via Algarviana long distance walking trail through the Barrocal hills. Part of the Great Pedestrian Route (GR13) which traverses the Algarve from East to West this trail flows an old pilgrim path though small rural villages. The walk options can be discussed with your Leader.

For an interesting insight into Portuguese traditions you could attend a Fado performance, this 30 minute show starts with a film about the history of Fado, a Portuguese traditional song, followed by guitarists and a singer performing a range of Fado songs. The tour leader will be able to advice on the best location and timings. You could also visit the Camera Obscura, housed in an old water tower close to the castle. A rotating mirror on the roof of the tower projects a telescopic view of Tavira, the guide uses the image to point out key sights and explain the history and culture of the town.

Today's optional 14 kilometre walk is expected to take approximately four hours with a total ascent and descent of 450 metres.

Accommodation:

Grade: Premium Hotel

Single room available

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 6 - Walk in the Barrocal hills north of Tavira.

Today we travel by taxis from Tavira to the Barrocal hills north west of Tavira. The Barrocal area is the Algarve's fertile farmland situated between the coastal strip and the mountains of the Serra. We'll follow a dirt track through cork oak woodland, olive groves and citrus orchards. In the springtime wildflowers cover the fields and in autumn the area becomes a haven for birds. Today we will enjoy a picnic lunch, getting supplies in Tavira before leaving.

Tonight you could try a Cataplana, originating from southern Portugal this flavoursome dish combines a variety of seafood in an aromatic stew, cooked in a copper clam shaped pot.

Today's 12 kilometre walk is expected to take approximately three-and-a-half hours with a total ascent and descent of 350 metres.

Accommodation:

Grade: Premium Hotel

Single room available

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 7 - Take a ferry to Culatra Island and walk to Farol

This morning we take the train to Olhao. Olhao is the Algarve's largest fishing port; we'll visit the morning fish and vegetable market before taking the small local ferry to Culatra island (30 minutes). The sand bar island of Culatra in Ria Formosa National Park is home to a small fishing community living in a cluster of low built houses and cottages. With no cars or paved roads walking around the sparsely developed island feels like stepping back in time, we'll take the wooden walkway through the sand dune system and relax on the vast empty beaches. Culatra is known for its abundant wildlife, and is a prime spot for birdwatching with a variety of seabird species. We get the boat back to the mainland from the other side of the island at Ilha do Farol (lighthouse), and travel back to our hotel.

Today's five kilometre walk is expected to take approximately one-and-a-half hours along a flat route.

Accommodation:

Grade: Premium Hotel

Trip information

Country information

Portugal

Climate

Overall, spring, early summer and autumn are ideal times for a trip to Portugal - though the weather varies enormously from region to region. The northern high plains has both extremes, stiflingly hot in summer, bitterly cold and swept by freezing winds in winter. The Atlantic coast, in contrast, has a tendency to damp and mist, and a relatively brief, humid summer. The Mediterranean south is warm virtually all year round. The islands have very different weather patterns due to their positioning and can have sudden rain falls throughout the year so waterproofs are recommended even in the summer.
