Walking holidays in Portugal


On a non-group, self-guided walking holiday in Portugal, you walk from one superbly located hotel of character to the next while your luggage is transported, or explore from a single base. We provide a map and our lovingly compiled route notes so that you can walk at your own pace.

Walking holidays in Portugal, Madeira

& the Azores
Intricately painted tiles, storks nesting on sea stacks, colourful flowers and, of course, famous wines, mean that our walking holidays in Portugal are about more than walking. We actively encourage you to delight in the details – an elegant manor house, the sunlight dancing on the sea – which is what Slow holidays are all about. And since you’re not with a group, and have no luggage (we transfer it between hotels), you can do just that, following our comprehensive route notes at your own pace.

Are our walking holidays in Portugal right for you?

When it comes to walking, Portugal caters particularly well for those looking for easy-to-moderate or moderate walking. To be sure of choosing the walking holiday in Portugal that is right for you, read how we grade them below.

  • Generally easy walking with few ascents / descents, but perhaps the occasional long day.
  • Easy-to-moderate walking with some ascents / descents, and occasional longer days.
  • Moderate walking on varied terrain, with some long days and regular ascents / descents.
  • Moderate-to-challenging walking on more rugged terrain with significant ascents / descents on most days. Compass skills may be required (check the individual holiday).
  • Challenging hikes, featuring long days with significant ascent / descent on challenging terrain. Compass skills may be required.
