Find a walking holiday in Portugal, Madeira or the Azores to suit you

Whether you like mountains, valleys or coastal scenery, Inntravel has a walking holiday in Portugal that’s perfect for you. On the mainland you can explore the Douro Valley, the grandeur and tranquillity of which are striking; stay in wonderful manor houses as you discover the lush green Minho; marvel at the castles and exuberant gardens on the way to Sintra; follow beautiful paths along the wild and unspoiled Costa Vicentina; explore the Setúbal Peninsula's idyllic coastline and acclaimed vineyards; or go walking in the Algarve – our holidays reveal the quiet side of this well-known region, where flower-clad hills tumble down to honey-coloured cliffs. Further afield, walking in Madeira is a popular option, and deservedly so – glorious displays of flowers thrive in the warmth, and the mild climate makes walking in Madeira a delight at any time of year. Just as lush, if not more so, are the landscapes of the Azores. Walking here, you will discover dramatic volcanoes, crater lakes and hot springs.
