Guided Walking Holidays Along the Algarve Way Theres the Algarve, and then theres the true Algarve! A world away from the coast below, small villages in the hills above earn their living sustainably with the natural resources available to them, such as cork, strawberry liquor, honey, fish and traditional handicrafts.Farmers tend to their crops and shepherds take their sheep and goats out to quiet pastures.Experience this journey with Ramblers Walking Holidays. Join us on this two-centre holiday which features six of the finest walking routes€ross the Algarve, the most westerly extension of the Grand European walking route E4/GR13. Youll have time to stop and admire the scenery and appreciate the unhurried pace of life. Starting in the beautiful village of Alcoutim, perched on the banks of the River Guadiana, we cross southern Portugal and finish at the dramatic cliffs of Cape Saint-Vincent, Europes most westerly point. In between weve selected the best walks which will take you through unspoilt villages and historic towns such as Messines, Alte and Silves, with their cobbled streets, Moorish influence and old world charm. The region teems with varied flora and fauna. Soaring above, you may spot peregrine falcons, kites, storks, hoopoes and if youre lucky, the rare Bonellis eagle. Days start with breakfast at our hotels and end with delicious meals at local restaurants allowing you to sample the wonderful Portuguese food and wines.
