NEW: following the Fishermen’s Trail in Portugal

CaminoWays.com, the cycling and walking holiday specialists, have just launched a new coastal trail: the magnificent Rota Vicentina Fishermen’s Trail in South West Portugal.

An authentic hidden gem, walkers on the Rota Vicentina Fishermen’s Trail follow superb coastal tracks shaped by the Atlantic Ocean in a land where the sea has been a livelihood for generations.

The Fishermen’s Trail crosses an area of unspoilt and wild natural beauty. As you make your way across the Alentejo and Vicentina Coast Natural Park, you will be rewarded with spectacular cliffs, sweeping ocean views and peaceful oak forests and olive groves.

You will be following in the footsteps of local fishermen who still take these trails today to reach the best fishing spots in the region.

Go for a swim in the ocean at one of the many sandy coves and treat yourself to fresh fish and seafood as you stop in friendly fishing villages such as Vilanova de Milfontes and Zambujeira do Mar along the way.

At Cabo de São Vicente (Cape Saint Vincent), Europe’s most south western point, you will enjoy dramatic views of the ocean and the cliffs. The cape is also a privileged spot for bird watching in the Autumn months. The tour finishes in the seaside resort of Sagres, where you can relax after this exhilarating trek.

Enjoying balmy temperatures all year round, the Rota Vicentina, Fishermen’s Trail in South West Portugal is ideal for walking in Spring and Autumn.

Spring, Autumn, Winter.

    Hi Harvey, in 14 days you could cycle the Camino Frances from Pamplona to Santiago: http://caminoways.com/ways/french-way-camino-frances/french-way-full-cycle. There are a couple of tough climbs: the Montes de Leon and the climb to O Cebreiro. Another option would be cycling the Portuguese Camino route, which is flatter (2 weeks from Lisbon or 1 week from Porto to Santiago http://caminoways.com/ways/portuguese-way-camino-portugues/portuguese-way-full-cycle) or the Northern Way (9 nights from Gijon): http://caminoways.com/ways/northern-way-camino-del-norte/northern-way-gijon-santiago-22. Our standard package would include accommodation (half-board or breakfast only); as well as luggage transfers and holiday pack with route information. We can also arrange bike rental if required. Our Customer Care team will be in touch. Let us know if you need anything else. Kind regards, Maria.

    HI… my friend and I are interested in cycling on the ?Camino for 7-14 days at the end of June 2016 We do not want too many tough hills and are quite flexible about where to start and finish (hopefully at the end). We can cycle 20-40 miles per day. We are happy to pay for moderate accommodation (separate beds required) and are experienced travelers. It would be great if you could get us “on the road.”
    Looking forward to hearing back.
