Hiking in Portugal – Walking in Paradise

About This Walk

Hiking in Portugal – Walking in Paradise

With the Walking in Paradise tour our aim is to combine a wonderful stay at our very special guesthouse, 7 kms from Évora, with the discovery of the ever surprising Alentejo. With our guides or by yourself your experience will be elevated to a greater level. In a guided tour you will discover hand in hand with us what it really means to be Alentejano.

You’ll find out your days will be plentiful but also relaxing! And our food… delicious!

During your stay we’ll take you through exclusive hiking trails, local cafés, beautiful historical monuments, artisans and wineries. Each day is different, the mix of different landscapes, the scents in the morning breeze, the sounds of late afternoon beetles and crickets, the golden colours of the summer fields and the wild life that pops up to surprise you will make you feel much more alive.
