Seven Hanging Valleys Tour

Groups From


A private trip with a special picnic to explore the recently elected best hiking destination in Europe: The Seven Hanging Valleys Trail.

The “seven hanging valleys” originated when seven ancient rivers emerged onto the seaside and carved valleys into the soft rock. Join us in discovering the natural beauty of the 5.7 km most famous track in the Algarve, through an unforgettable sensory walk. Escape the hustle and bustle of modern life and immerse yourself in a realm of salty air and geological wonders.
