During a Hiking Trip, travelers also visit places and monuments of cultural interest. This form of tourism is environmentally friendly, as most hikers respect and protect the natural and cultural environment.

Located 24 miles from Lisbon, Arrábida Natural Park embraces 25 miles of trails within protected landscapes and incredible views.
Portinho da Arrábida is one of the most stunning beach areas, thanks to its fine white sand and crystal-clear sea – and it tends to remain relatively quiet due to its location away from the city. The area is less open than most of the coast of Portugal, so one doesn't tend to get the large waves often seen domineering the coastlines.
During a Hiking trip, limestone peaks and pine forests fall quickly away, revealing searingly blue sea and sandy beaches. Hike west along the coast to discover fantastic sea caverns with ocean views.
The stretch features caves with hundreds of colorful fish and crystal-clear water. Hidden within is a 17th-century altar containing a fishermen's shrine adorned with coins, shells, candles, and flowers. Alternatively, our experienced guide takes you up into the Serra da Arrábida national park hills and beyond Quinta do Anjo with its Neolithic burial caves.

The Azores is the ultimate destination for adventurers and nature lovers alike. The best way to truly uncover all the hidden gems around the islands is on a Hiking Trip.
For centuries, in the Azores, the easiest way to travel from one place to another within the same island was by sea. With few paths, some suitable for carriages or oxcarts, the islanders used most of the footpaths in their daily commute or to take cattle to or from the pasturelands, accompanied by horses, donkeys, and mules.
The locals also used these paths for festivities in the vicinity and for transporting agricultural produce, fish, charcoal, and other merchandise to trade.
This network of footpaths was restored and made accessible to everyone to enjoy the Azores' unique landscape. Indeed, each trail runs through stunning places, linking the islands' corners along the coastlines and uplands.
