ROTA VICENTINA: THE FISHERMEN’S TRAIL
A magnificent coastal trail along the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in Southern Portugal, the scenery on the Rota Vicentina Fishermen’s Trail is simply breathtaking. October is the best time of the year to walk this superb coastal route, particularly if you are into bird watching, as Cape St Vincent is a privileged place for spotting migratory birds this time of the year.
A 10-night trip from Porto Covo to Sagres starts at €965 per person sharing including accommodation, breakfast, luggage transfers and a holiday pack with route information.

CAMINO PORTUGUÉS FROM PORTO
The Camino Portugués is the second most popular Camino de Santiago trail amongst pilgrims, after the classic Camino Francés. We suggest you start your Camino journey from colourful Porto, home of Port wine, and take this historic trail north towards Santiago de Compostela, walking across small vineyards and forest tracks, stopping for the night in historic towns such as Barcelos, Valenca do Minho and Tui. You can walk from Porto to Santiago in just 2 weeks.
A 14-night trip from Porto to Santiago de Compostela starts at €1463 per person sharing including accommodation, breakfast, 10 dinners, luggage transfers and a holiday pack with route information.
