Arrive Faro Airport
We’ll meet you at Faro airport and bring you to the Hotel.
Short introductory walk around Tavira. Free time until evening meeting.
Wonderful walk through open rolling hillsides. Spectacular views allow a tremendous appreciation of the region.
We walk through fascinating villages and descend to finish in a low fertile valley full of orange orchards and small holdings.
Santa Luzia and Tavira Island walk
A remarkably varied walk on the Ria Formosa Natural Park.
Our walk takes us through Tavira’s salt pans which date back thousands of years.
We take a relaxing break in the fishing village of Santa Luzia with its glorious waterfront. And we walk along Tavira Island’s beach regarded by many as one of the finest in the world with its vast stretches of golden sand and sparkling blue waters.
The walk will feature a fascinating boat ride between Tavira & Tavira Island.
This is an ideal opportunity to relax and enjoy the attractions of Tavira and surroundings. You can walk/tour independently, or visit local places of interest. From Tavira, there is a wide variety of sightseeing available (we can advise and/or recommend options according to your interests). On free time keen bird-watchers may wish to visit Castro Marim in the fens and marshes of the "Reserva Natural do Sapal", famous for their flamingos, or enjoy other local sightseeing tours.
Manta Rota to Cabanas Walk
Classic coastal walk following the inner shoreline and visiting the iconic village of Cacela Velha before arriving in Cabanas for a well-earned rest in one of the many cafés lining this spectacular waterfront. From here we will return to Tavira.
Santa Catarina Cerâmica walk
An inland walk through one of the most beautiful and interesting valleys in the Algarve.
Santa Catarina is one of the centres for the production of carob, almond, fig, olive oil and medronho and the surrounding countryside we walk through reflects this. We will also pass tiny brick and tile works whose hand-made craft dates back to before Roman times.
Fuzeta to Tavira Walk
A lovely walk following the Algarve’s Ecovia. We pass by old estates with orange, figs and almond orchards and through the salt pans of Fuzeta where we are able to appreciate the rich birdlife of the area.
Free time until transfer from Tavira to Faro Airport.
