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

Rota Vicentina Fishermen's Trail

Fishermen's Trail.

This programme covers the entire length of the original 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 lived there  25,000 years ago.

Walking. Varied walking tour only requiring a good basic fitness level.   You walk on well maintained marked walking trails. On these coastal trails there is a considerable amount of dune walking. Daily walking times are max. 7 hours.
