The Fisherman’s Trail, also known as Portugal’s Rota Vicentina, is one of Europe’s lesser known gems: a long distance hiking trails with some of the most spectacular coastal line you have ever seen. Begin in Lisbon but soon travel away from this busy city to venture into quieter areas where you might often find your group to be the only ones about, passing small fishing villages and pristine beaches as you travel through the Alentejo and Algarve regions. Travel with an expert, local leader and like minded travelers as you stare up at dramatic cliffs, traverse the ever changing sand dunes full of rare and endemic wildlife, and sunbath on lovely beaches along the coast. This corner of Portugal is not to be underestimated for its beauty, culture, and food.
