Uncover the Algarve’s hidden gems on this group walking tour that highlights windswept coastal paths, bird-spotted natural parks and pine-scented peaks

There’s more to Portugal’s famous Algarve than blue-flag beaches, golf courses and swanky resorts. Scratch beneath the surface of this holiday mecca by visiting the wild western coast, where you’ll ramble through protected parks and traverse trails along burnt-orange clifftops home to lighthouses and forts. Stay in the port town of Lagos with its mosaiced lanes and church-studded squares encircled by 16th-century walls. From here, the Atlantic’s surf-worthy monster waves have carved elaborate sea arches and rock stacks along the coastline, culminating at the nearby Ponta da Piedade. 

Each day, your group will embark upon relaxed walks along coastal trails that lead through whitewashed fishing villages where you can pick up some of Portugal's signature pasteis de nata, creamy custard tarts. Stop at isolated golden coves on your way to Sagres, where a striking lighthouse marks the most southwesterly point in Europe and a kaleidoscope of seabirds nest; here you’ll discover Portugal’s nautical past and the remains of a 15th-century fort. 

However, it’s the Cabo de São Vicente Nature Reserve that really steals the show. Follow trails through the reserve’s seaside villages, across desolate dunes and remote countryside that flourishes with spring wildflowers, to cliffs overlooking honey-hued coves. Finally, for aerial views of the Algarve’s paradisical coastline, head inland, spiralling upwards to the Monchique mountains where trails lead through dense forests to Roman spa towns and the 902-metre-tall Foia peak – the Algarve’s highest – which offers unblemished coastal views.
