Fishermen’s Trail – Portugal
Rota Vicentina: – Fishermen’s Trail
The Rota Vicentina sits on the south west of Portugal just below Lisbon starting in the Portuguese region of Alentejo. It is a long distance walk with choice along the coast line called the Fishermen’s Trail or slightly in land called the Historical Way. Both trails are broken up into suitable walking stages. This part of Portugal is beautiful with wonderful cliff walks and sandy beaches and dunes to small hills passing by little villages as you walk. The trail has been developed over the past few years by the communities and associations and is a wonderful place to explore.
On this 8 day Itinerary you will experience the highlights of Rota Vicentina or the Fishermen’s trails. You will walk small sandy tracks overlooking the Wild Atlantic with wonderful sunsets in the evenings with then explore some of the rivers and hills among the inland of Alentejo.
The accommodation is some of the best along the trail using small local farmhouses offering great food and even some swimming pools and unique converted accommodations to help you relax after your days walk.
The food in Portugal and in this area is excellent with very fresh local produce and of course a wide variety of fish dishes.
Don’t worry about booking accommodations or getting transfers, because everything is taken care of for you. Just relax, enjoy the way and rest at cozy rural tourism accommodations where you’ll stay overnight and be warmly welcomed.
“Rota Vicentina is a community project, from local people to the world, sustained by the efforts of all partners that have in common the love for this region and the aim for its sustainable development.
