Activities: Hiking and Walking in the Algarve
The Algarve offers a tremendous choice of walks from the beaches and coastal cliff tops to further inland and the rolling hillsides. Most of our Algarve Walking Holidays include a variety of historical features and points of interest. We have researched dozens of walks in the Algarve so we know the best places to take you and can also match the level of difficulty to your fitness levels and preferences. We can make your walk a nice relaxing stroll or we can provide you with a real challenge!
Our locally based guides will offer you a choice of walks from an easy 5 or 6 km right up to a more challenging 20km (or more) Hikes. If you are really keen, you can do a couple of the shorter walks each day which should allow just enough time to stop at a local café or restaurant for a lunch break.
Discounts are available for large groups, please contact us for details.
If you have already booked your holiday accommodation in the Algarve or are visiting friends or family and would like to book a walking tour with Activity Algarve, this service is also available. We can provide you and your group with a half or full day tour, including collection from your accommodation in central Algarve region.

What to Bring
The main ingredient for a successful walking holiday is a good pair of walking boots. Ideally these should be bought well in advance of your holiday and be given a chance to get well worn in, so that you minimise the chances of experiencing any discomfort whilst walking on holiday. As the weather can be very hot depending upon the time of year, it is advisable to carry a day sack so that you can carry your own water supply for the walk. In the winter months, although the temperature rarely drops below 10C, it is advisable to bring along some warm clothing and rain gear.
You would be unlucky to experience a prolonged spell of rain, but just in case you do get some rain, its best to bring along some waterproofs as well. When it does rain here, it is usually very heavy!
