Hugging the western coast of the Iberian Peninsula, Portugal is an incredible destination packed with treasures for the history buff, the culture junkie and the outdoor adventurer alike.
From its perfect weather and spectacular coastline lined with golden beaches, dramatic cliffs and world-class surf breaks; to its lively cities and historic towns filled with cobblestoned streets and medieval architecture—it’s easy to see how Portugal lures travellers back again and again.
Head to Portugal’s southwest coast to walk among the national parks, pristine beaches, steep cliffs and rolling dunes of the magnificent Algarve region on an itinerary tailored to let you experience one of Europe’s most famous coastlines without the crowds.
Hike sections of the famous Camino Portugues (Portuguese Road) from Lisbon to Santiago; and discover the rugged landscapes of Madeira Island by walking along its network of levadas, trails that follow historic irrigation channels through the scenic heart of this spectacular island.
Walk through fertile valleys filled with vineyards, citrus trees and olive groves, indulging in local wines and visiting picturesque villages where age-old traditions persist; and explore the cobblestoned backstreets and medieval castles, cathedrals and monasteries of what was once one of the world’s most powerful merchant empires.
