Program and Lodging:

Day 1: Arrival – Welcome at Faro / Lisbon airport.

1:00 hour drive to Lagos (3.00 hours from Lisbon). Lodging in a typical Algarve building 4* Hotel with swimming-pool, that epitomizes the Algarve culture, with blue and white corridors which link the rooms, patios, restaurants and bar .

Day 2: Hike Lagos to Luz Beach (13 km, +450 m).

Start your walking in Lagos by the old and narrow streets getting to the sea. You can still see evidence of the wall surrounding the town for protection. You follow an amazing coast line to Ponta da Piedade where you will find fantastic sceneries of cliffs, caves and rocks with an amazing mixture of colors! From above the sea you will see the small town of Luz where there is a beautiful beach of fine and golden sand. Lodging in nice 4* Hotel with swimming-pool and gardens, close to the sea and to the beach.

Day 3: Hike Luz to Salema village – (13 km, +400 m).

On this day you will find some small fishing villages and some abandoned fortresses which remind us of the time when this coast was ravaged by pirates! In Salema you can enjoy the beach and the tasty local gastronomy based on fresh fish from the ocean. Night on a Guest House close to the beach, inside the typical village of Salema.

Day 4: Short car transfer and Hike from the Typical inland villages to Salema – (9 km, +150 m) or (16,5 km, +300 m).

This is your rest day in Salema, or not; you have the possibility to discover some typical inland villages and an amazing stone pine wood. Night on the same hotel as day before.

Day 5: Hike Salema to Sagres (16,5 km, +700 m, difficult terrain) or transfer by car to Zavial and hike to Sagres (11 km, +300 m, moderate).

This day is the most spectacular in natural beauty! Deserted secret beaches with lagoons and a coast line almost untouched by Man, a landscape of rare beauty which is discovered while you walk along trails on the cliffs. Finally you get to beautiful Baleeira Bay, with an amazing beach of fine sand and five small islands which give this place a unique charm! This is where you will stay the last two nights of your program. Lodging in a 4* new hotel with swimming-pool and beautiful views over the sea.

Day 6: Hike Sagres to Cape S. Vicente – (14 km, +200 m). Transfer back by car to Sagres.

On the last walking day you will walk along the high cliffs of Sagres and to Cape S. Vicente - the place where the land ends and the sea begins! Sagres is the south-westernmost point in continental Europe and the place from where our brave forefathers sailed on their caravels seeking new peoples and continents five centuries ago! Lodging in the same 4* new hotel.
