WIN! A walking holiday for two in Portugal, worth £2,000

Closing date: 24 Dec 2019

A mild climate and views that far outweigh the energy you put into seeing them makes Portugal’s hiking trails the envy of Europe. KE Adventure Travel in partnership with the Portuguese National Tourist Board are offering you and a friend the chance to win one of two walking escapes in Madeira or the Algarve. So get your boots on…

Coast with the most

Coast with the most

Some 1,794km of coastline skirts Portugal’s mainland, threading dramatic clifftops and natural parks. Few spots, however, rival the mighty Algarve. While many still see Portugal’s southernmost region as a beach destination, that overlooks just how dramatic its wild western fringes can be. KE Adventure’s Timeless Trails of the Algarve guided tour offers the chance to picnic in deserted coves and swim out from golden bays where the only company are fishermen scouring the shallows for oysters.

Stays in an organic eco-lodge and home-cooked meals accompany days spent walking the windswept Vincentian Coast, exploring valleys and villages, or gazing out from Europe’s most south-westerly point as short-toed eagles soar overhead. It’s another world entirely, and well worth the effort to discover.

The island paradise

In recent years the island of Madeira has increasingly become known as an adventure travel wonderland. Its mountains and trails offer untapped wilds to explore, especially on KE Adventure Travel’s Self Guided Walking on Madeira tour. The 2,000km of levadas (historic aqueducts) that riddle Madeira make for great walking and this tour allows you to circumnavigate the entire island. Trek the Levada do Norte, one of the longest and oldest on the island (dating as far back as the 16th century). Or choose the winding summit of Paul da Serra, from where views trickle out over lush mountains and valleys.

You’ll also have the chance to wander the botanical gardens of Monte, the traditional reed-thatched houses of Santana, or discover the history (natural or otherwise) of an island that dates back some five million years.

Walk this way

KE Adventure Travel’s small-group and self-guided tours of Portugal allow you to explore its wild sights on foot, soaking up local life and culture. It’s the perfect chance to see a side to Portugal that most miss, so just pick a trip and answer the question for a chance to see them first-hand.
