Self guided walking Portugal

Cercal Circular.


This programme offers a mix of both the Historical Way and the Fishermen's Trail. At times, during the first four days in the serra, you will be tempted by the views of the Atlantic as the trail meanders through the forests, before experiencing the whole of the Fishermen's Trail in the south west Alentejo, which for the most part follows  paths that have been used by local fishermen for generations to reach the best spots for line fishing from the cliffs.


After the sleepy inland Alentejano villages, the route passes through several seaside villages which are bustling resorts in the hot summer months, offering a number of "Blue Flag" beaches and a host of nautical activiites, before a brief return to the tranquility of the interior.


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. The forests  display the changing colours of the cork oak trees and  the flowers and fruits of the strawberry tree.


Walking. Varied walking tour only requiring a good basic fitness level. You walk on well maintained marked walking trails and partly on forest paths.  On the coastal trails there is a considerable amount of dune walking. Daily walking times are max. 8 hours.
