Walking & Hiking in the Algarve

Portugal - the perfect hiking place all over the year! 

Portugal is a great country for a walk. There is an incredible variety of landscapes in this country including beaches, mountains and brilliantly verdant valleys! Perfect weather conditions remain all year round even in winter, when days may have a colder wind but are usally sunny with very little rain!

Western Algarve is still relatively unsettled and there are a number of nature reserves and areas of natural beauty making it ideal for nature lovers. Rare fauna and flora can be found in the hills! The Barão São João Mata Nacional is one of the Algarve’s largest forestlands and was the source of materials used for the great sailing ships during the age of discovery. This area of outstanding natural beauty is a peaceful oasis and offers hiking routes all the way to Foia, the highest peak in this region.

The Costa Vincentina in the western Algarve is also a popular walking destination. It is still possible to find the wilder, authentic Algarve on this Atlantic coast. Check out the Via Algarviana (, a purpose built walking route that runs from Alcoutim to Cabo de São Vincente. Another new route has also just been established in this area, called the Vicentine Route, it runs from Santiago do Cacém in the Alentejo to just north of Odeceixe.

Summer season in the Algarve falls between May and September and it can get very hot during August. Spring, however, is an excellent time of year (roughly between February and May) to enjoy an all-day hike. This is also the time that the Algarve’s wildflowers show their splendour in many different colours, creating a wonderfully pastoral view everywhere you go! Portugal Service are happy to point out to you where best to go or to recommend some of the beauty spots here in the western Algarve.
