“Algarve Best Walks” offers you guided walking experiences in the Algarve. With our outdoor sports back ground we have been walking, cycling and kayaking in the Algarve since 2001.
Now we offer once a week a different walk, and some times twice a week. All our walks are circular - start & finish are at the same location. We have carefully choosen the start of each walk to be easily found, just away from a main road.
And most of the walks are easy to reach by train or bus. All walks start/finish at a local snack bar or coffee shop with toilets.
The dates and times will updated on our Facebook Events Page. ”Like” our Page and you will be updated automatically in the future.

Four walks will show you the most rural parts of the coast line. And 4 walks will lead you through the interior of the Algarve. All walks will take in total 3 hours time. The NET walking time is approx. 2 ½ hours.
