We believe the best way to get to know a place is by exploring on foot, backpacking away from the tourist routes, feeling the path underneath, meeting the people who live there, tasting their food. We give you, open heartedly, 230km to explore and venture through Alentejo and Algarve’s best kept traditions, gastronomy and natural views.

 The food will be served with great Portuguese wine. In Alentejo your stomach will never be disappointed, be it beef or fish, red or white wine – the regional cuisine is always a crowd pleaser.

 The ever present natural scape will marvel you. From the hills you’ll glance at the ocean and make out the beaches hiding beneath the schist or sandy cliffs. Amongst holm and cork oak groves, and valleys where shepherds guard their flocks, you’ll be taken back in time. Streams and creeks of fresh water provide home for unique specimens, both animal and plants, and it is well worth exploring these amazing ecosystems.

 Leave all the hustle and bustle behind and let yourself immerse into the calm landscapes of the southern region of Portugal and be sure the enjoy every step.

 Welcome to Rota Vicentina, it’s time to embark on your next adventure!
