The Fishermen’s Way / Rota Vicentina (classic version)
Spend a couple of days walking through the serras overlooking the Atlantic coast before spending four days following the trails used by locals to get to the beaches and hot fishing spots, walking from one fishing village to the next along the cliffs and through the dunes, witnessing the harsh coastal scenery and the wild and powerful natural landscape. Each night will be spent at a different family owned/managed guest house or small hotel in bedrooms with en-suite facilities.
Rota Vicentina, known as the Fishermen’s Way is a single track along the cliffs which can only be traveled by foot, and more demanding from a physical point of view. A challenge to a permanent contact with the ocean winds, the harsh coastal scenery and the wild and powerful natural landscape. Most days include short steep ascents from beach to cliffs. At times, tide levels will affect your route and make it necessary to walk some sections inland. The terrain is relatively flat with some scratchy vegetation or slightly overgrown areas inland.
