Hiking in Portugal – Walk through the quiet countryside.

Rio Douro, or River of Gold, is astonishing in its tranquility and vibrant colors. Fertile hills neatly lined with green vines and old olive trees are dotted with the region’s tiny, untouched villages of granite houses with red roofs. Here, at the Quintas (wineries) dotted across the slopes, port wine is produced. There are so many hidden and undiscovered treasures that can only be discovered on foot.

Portugal’s varied landscapes provide unrivaled opportunities for memorable walking holidays. Discover the world’s first demarcated wine region – the Douro Valley and the historic Portuguese villages in northwest Portugal on this week-long walking-focused tour.

Why you’ll love this trip

  • Find the essence of Portugal on your hiking adventure.
  • Explore unique places in Portugal. Walk on boardwalks next to sandy beaches, through fishing villages, over Roman roads, along wooden walkways in green mountains, and discover crystal-clear lagoons.
  • Admire the unique city of Porto. You will experience all this fascinating and vibrant city has to offer, including some of the best restaurants in Portugal. 
  • Enjoy a private, hands-on cooking class in Braga with a local chef.

"Our holiday was amazing"

Our holiday was amazing. It is not often that a whole holiday goes by without any problems or delays. It was due to the fantastic organization of Eco Trilha and the team. The guides were amazing! They help us visit other cities in Portugal. Chris gave us more information about Coimbra, Aveiro, and Lisbon. Thanks again to all of us.
