Self-guided Walking Holidays and Tours In Portugal
Our self-guided walking tours are complete and most of all perfectly thought through and organized. There is no time consuming search for places to stay, maps or tour descriptions, no research on which route to pick. We provide everything you need to explore at your own pace!
Our self-guided walking holidays are for walkers who enjoy being independent. Your accommodation is booked, we provide you with full route notes and maps, and you take the lead and determine at what pace you move, where you want to go, and what you want to see.
Enjoy a carefree walking holiday, at your own pace. Each and every walking day has been meticulously researched and planned to the detail.
In some locations/days the routes start and end at the hotel, at others we provide transport or a hire car so that you can explore further afield - please see the individual holiday pages for more details.
On our single-center self-guided walking holidays you spend your evenings in one base hotel, so you can settle in and make yourself at home for the week.
We provide you with a variety of walking routes for you to explore independently. These are perfect if you don't fancy packing your case every few days or if one (or more) of your party would like a less active break.
We offer excellent value for money and flexibility, most self-guided itineraries are available on daily departures.
Created especially for our self-guided walking tours, the trip notes are personally tested by our experts and give you detailed kilometre-by-kilometre descriptions, with all the information you need for a smooth experience.
Our holidays offer beautiful fresh views and chances to capture iconic photographs, take in the atmosphere and enjoy your surroundings.
Let's be real, what more could you ask for? So when you're ready for a holiday, check out our list of awesome self-guided walking holiday offers.
