The Algarve is not all golden beaches and sparkling seas – there is much, much more! If you want to get closer to nature join us on a walking tour through some of the most beautiful scenery in the Algarve – the 7 hanging valleys trail, followed by a fantastic cruise to visit the famous Benagil grottoes.
Elected as the best hiking trail in Europe by European Best Destinations based on votes from over 28.000 travelers from 153 countries, it is described as “breathtaking & unforgettable”. This scenic route is situated in Carvoeiro area and offers a string of notable stops at Benagil and Carvalho beaches, among others. The walk takes place along the top of coastal cliffs defined by deeply sculpted shapes and beautiful ocher and golden Cliffs. Crowning the cliffs near Praia da Marinha, the dense juniper and mastic undergrowth provides shelter to a variety of animals that include rabbits and several species of birds and butterflies. All this greenery bursts into flower in early spring, making for an especially perfumed and colourful ambience.
The walk is led by an experienced guide. A light snack is served at the end of the walk, for you to enjoy as you marvel with the beautiful surroundings.
This walk is of moderate/medium-high difficulty; some stretches can be more difficult for elderly or very young visitors.
Length: 5,7 Kms; Average Completion Time: up to 3 hours.
