Fishermen’s Way / Rota Vicentina (classic)
Portugal’s Rota Vicentina (or Fishermen’s Way) is one of the most famous long-distance self-guided hiking trails in Europe. It is an exciting coastal trail along beautiful cliffs and dunes which can only be followed on foot. Enjoy the wild seaside natural landscape as the Atlantic ocean winds encourage you to advance from one charming village to the next. You will walk through beautiful beaches, climb the neighboring cliffs and enjoy magnificent views.
