Guided Walking Holidays - Walking in Portugal’s Western Algarve The western Algarve offers a glorious mix of coastal, mountain and inland landscapes. The varied geology produces a rich diversity of scenery from granite mountains to dramatic limestone escarpments and sea cliffs, all greatly complemented by the local flora and fauna.Experience this journey with Ramblers Walking Holidays. We stay in two contrasting centres on Portugals south coast. From historic Silves we enjoy a levada walk beside the Rio Arade, which passes through orange and lemon groves, and exploring the old town. Another day will be spent in the hills of the Serra de Monchique, offering outstanding views. Carob and olives are cultivated on farms and small holdings, along with oranges and other citrus fruit, pomegranates, almonds and an abundance of other produce. We visit local villages where working life continues as it has for centuries. As we head to our second centre of Burgau, well enjoy a fantastic coastal walk between Alvor and Portimo en route. Burgau is a quiet village with a selection of restaurants and bars to while away the evenings. From here we will continue our search for the hidden gems of the Western Algarve. A coastal walk will take us from Luz to Lagos, encountering some typical Algarvian villages as we go, and head to the edge of Europe, walking in the Parque Natural de Costa Vicentina, the most south-westerly point of Europe, and the last sight of land for explorers setting forth on their historic voyages.
