12 relaxed walking and cycling holidays for your next escape

The Algarve might be known as a popular holiday destination, but scratch beneath the surface and you’ll discover a whole other side to this stunning region. Away from all the resorts and hotels is the Sagres Peninsula – the Algarve’s ‘Wild West’ – which is breathtakingly beautiful, wild, and remote.

This is a land of golden beaches, soaring cliffs, secret sea caves, and flower-filled meadows – a place where lush valleys, dense pine forests, and dramatic coastline hide fascinating wildlife. Whitewashed villages and old castle towns perch upon rolling hills, and all around, the Atlantic Ocean crashes.

A walking holiday in the Algarve allows you to make the most of the natural beauty and absorbing culture of this region. You’ll follow the Rota Vicentina and Fishermen’s Trail; hiking over hills dotted with almond trees, through orchid-rich forests, along craggy cliff tops, and over pristine beaches.

You’ll stay in a variety of accommodations, from rustic village houses to chic hotels, all of which have pools. Three dinners are included, so if you’re looking to enjoy delicious Algarvian cuisine, you’re in luck. You can feast upon fresh fish, tangy cheese, local vegetables, and superb Portuguese wines.
