Self-guided walking on the Rota Vicentina from Santiago do Cacém to Odeceixe via Porto Covo.
This programme offers a mix of both the Historical Way and the Fishermen's Trail. At times, during the first three 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.
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.
