Easier Country Walks

Benafim to Alte (7 km / 4.3 miles – 1 1/2 - 2 hours – Half Day)

Come and enjoy country and river side walking with this guided tour.

This is an easy walk mostly on flat terrain with small hills which we will do at a relaxed pace, therefore this walk is good for all walking levels!

We will start this walk in a small beautiful village of Benafim, where you can see the traditional architecture, with the narrow streets, white houses and beautiful chimneys. We will then walk out of the village into the countryside onto dirt tracks.

Along this walk down the hill you will see orchards of orange and lemon trees as well as many wine vineyards. At the bottom you will find a stream of water that depending on the time of the year it can have more or less strength. This is the first indication that Alte is not too far. Along the way up the steep hill you can look through the valleys back towards Salir and onwards towards Alte – some amazing views. If you are lucky a Fox or some lovely birds can come your way.

Historic Country Walk - Paderne (7km / 4.3 miles – 3+ hours – Half Day)

Come enjoy our Coastal & country guided walk!

Want to escape to the country, but like flat terrain and easy walking? Then come try this guided walk!

On this walk we will show you the old Algarve, having a glimpse back into history. See where people would come to clean their clothes, ruins, to walking through dirt track roads with Berry bushes, Citrus and Olive orchards around you.

During this walk there is written history and information for you to read while looking and photographing – coming to an area where you can rest by a historic watermill. Depending on the time of the year – listen to the river running by the side of you.

We will then weave in and out of small flat walkways alongside the river with views of old ruins. There will be a short uphill walk to the castle while breathing the fresh air of the countryside and listening to surrounding birds. Take the opportunity to observe and photograph some amazing panoramic views from the top! Before we head back down.
