Itinerary.

 

Day one: Arrival in the Alentejo. Overnighting in the coastal Alentejo village of Porto Covo at a small hotel with swimming pool near the centre of the village.

 

Day two: Seven caches can be found within a few kms of the village north and south along the coast. Another two can be found on Ilha do Pessgueiro (Peachtree Island), but you will need to arrange a boat trip to find these.

 

Day three: Welcome meeting after breakfast at your guest house before the search continues from Porto Covo das Bandeiras to Vila Nova de Milfontes. You will be driven to a point south of the village from where you will continue on foot for up to 12 km, in an effort to find a dozen or more caches. You will spend two nights in a room with seview and balcony at a small hotel with a swimming pool near to the old historic centre of the village, close to the castle with views over the river estuary.

 

Day four: Around the town there are several caches, including a couple of multi-caches. You may choose to spend the day around the hotel pool or on the beach, but there is one cache that it is advised to seek out after dark.

 

Day five: After a short boat ride across the estuary, the hunt continues along the coast from Vila Nova de Milfontes to Almograve. Another ten caches are waiting for you over the next 12 km. You will spend the night at a delightful guest house with a swimming pool situated just behind the sand dunes.

 

Day six: On a 18 km walk from Almograve to Zambujeira do Mar. passing through the village of Cavaleiro and the historic Cabo Sardão lighthouse, a dozen caches are hidden. You will spend the night at a small guest house close to the village centre.

 

 

Day seven: There are ten caches on this 18km walk from Zambujeira do Mar to Odeceixe, visiting the fishing village of Azenha do Mar. If you still have enough energy, there are another two to be found near to the town. You will spend the night at a small guest house close to the river.

 

Day eight: After breakfast depart from Odeceixe.
