The Tour Interior Alentejo, Alentejo Coast and Algarve is an extremely exciting experience. The reason is simple: in just 4 days, we travel through the south of Portugal following a route as diverse as beautiful.
On the first day of this trip, we reveal iconic places, wonderful landscapes and traditions of Alentejo Central (Central Alentejo). Further south, we discover the Baixo Alentejo (Lower Alentejo), a place of olive groves and forests of cork oaks and holm-oaks near the border with Spain. On the second day, we cross the entire coast of the Algarve visiting the most historically important cities and seeing famous beach destinations.
The last two days of the tour will be dedicated to getting to know the Alentejo Litoral (Alentejo Coast), considered the last wild coast of Europe and also one of the most beautiful in the world. On the third day, the trail takes us along the Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Park, its landscapes and small towns. In the fourth and last day, we travel through the Costa Azul (Blue Coast) and cross the Sado River by ferry to Setubal in order to visit the Arrábida Mountains Natural Park.
