Guided Walking Holidays - Portugal’s Emerald Coast Based on the stunning Costa Verde in Northern Portugal, famous for its mountains, lush green countryside, beautiful beaches and delightful Vinho Verde, this is a captivating and unforgettable holiday destination. Well walk along some of Portugals finest coast line, as well as meandering along ancient tracks which link the numerous classic Minho villages and lush pastoral valleys. Well explore the dramatic mountains of the Serra dgra, where wild horses roam, and cross the river Minho in a delightful small chain ferry to Portugals Spanish sister, O Muio, to climb to the sanctuary of Santa Tecla where Celtic history comes alive. This area has been inhabited since pre-historic times and is rich in natural and cultural history ranging from Neolithic to Roman times, with villages full of history for us to visit. Our trails take us inland on part of the Camino de Santiago and along the coastal Ecovia pathways. This is a quieter, greener Portugal. A world away from the beaches and towns of the Algarve. We stay in the coastal town of Vila Praia de Ancora in the North West corner of Portugal. After our walks, there will be time to relax on the beaches and maybe take a dip in the sea before enjoying the sunset and local cuisine. Our hotel is located in the very centre of this charming town and its an easy stroll out to dinner at nearby restaurants. Dining at local restaurants with traditional dishes is an important part of a holiday and staying in Vila Praia de Ancora offers this possibility.
