Fishermen's Trail

Fishermen's Trail - 6 days - 4 walks.


Self-guided walking on the Rota Vicentina from Porto Covo to Odeceixe.


This programme covers the entire length of The Fishermen's Trail in the south west Alentejo. For the most part, it follows paths that have been used by local fishermen for generations to reach the best spots for line fishing from the cliff tops.


The route passes through several seaside villages which are very popular resorts in the hot summer months, offering a number of "Blue Flag" beaches and a host of nautical activiites.


The trail itself is an incredible sensory experience, from the sounds of the birds and the vast Atlantic Ocean crashing against the rocks, abundant plant life with a multitude of colours, shades and fragrances and varied geological phenomenon.


At times, you will be following in the footsteps of the elephants that live there 25,000 years ago.

Stork and chicks




An extra night at Odeceixe to be able to take a 15km circular walk from the village along a short section of the Historical Way and returning to the village via northernmost loop of the Fishermen's Trail in the Algarve.


A rest day mid way through the programme at the guest house behind the sand dunes in Almograve, where you can relax around the pool.
