When presented with golf course and towering condo development along the Alentejo Atlantic coast, Portugal instead invested in the Rota Vicentina Eco Tourism project.

It connects ancient fishing trails and where needed, new hiking trails have been built to create 225km (140miles) of the best coastal scenery path in Europe all the way to Cabo Sao Vicente at the very southern tip of Europe.

Dark gray striped cliff sides, fossilized sand dunes, and tiny quaint fishing villages were linked by the Fishermen’s Trail with an emphasis on slow and responsible travel.

▶️ Want to hike with only a daypack? Luggage transport is simple and easy.

Rota Vicentina Weather

The Alentejo coastline of Portugal is often driven past by tourists on the way between Lisbon and the popular Algarve in the South. I did it myself, twice!

This is especially great for hikers that don’t want to travel to South America or New Zealand to hike September to June.

The weather is temperate and mild mid September to June compared to most of Europe. There can be occasional rain and humidity, but it’s also not uncommon to wear t-shirts in the sun in November. Rain gear is needed for hiking, but not the mountaineer version. A simple rain coat and backpack cover should suffice.

And birdwatchers interested in the last white stork nesting ground in Europe will be surprised at what this little, last wild corner of Europe has to offer.

Fishermen’s Trail Portugal Hiking Route Options & Itinerary

There’s some confusion around the terms Rota Vicentina and Fishermen’s Trail. Under the umbrella of “Rota Vicentina” are included the Historical Way (inland, resembling the Camino Portuguese), Fishermen’s Trail (coastal), and Circular Routes (day hikes).

The “Fishermen’s Trail” is considerably more scenic than the Historical Way and runs directly on the coast in 13 stages. Each year more sections are developed and improved, great news for you explorers!

4-5 Day Fishermen’s Trail Itinerary

Fishermen's trail portugal

I’ve hiked the absolutely most scenic stages for this 4 day guide. I met new hiking friends along the trail in 2021 who’ve done it more than once, and this is the part they have come back to again and again.

Arrival Day: Get to Porto Covo: (Lisbon to Porto Covo 2.5 hours, Detailed Transport Here)

Stage 1: Porto Covo to Vila Nova Milfontes 12 miles, 20 km

Stage 2: Vila Nova Milfontes to Almograve 9 miles, 15 km

Stage 3: Almograve to Zambujeira do Mar 13 miles, 21 km

Stage 4: Zambujeira do Mar to Odeceixe 11 miles, 18 km

If you’d like a longer trip, this Rota Vicentina Fishermen’s Trail website provides helpful information and an app to plan the entire way.

Fishermens Trail  Rota Vicentina

It’s possible to hike in either direction as the trail is very well marked in both directions, including symbols on “where not to hike”, however the North to South direction is the most simple in terms of bus connections.

Please note many hikers will use bus transport to avoid some of the more boring sections, such as between Odeceixe and Aljezur. Also, accommodations in winter may be difficult on the more southern stretches toward Lagos, and people may either wild camp or taxi to the next place to sleep.

How Long is the Fishermen’s Trail in Portugal

The length of the Best of the Fishermen’s Trail 4 day hike is 76 km (47 miles) long.

The stages outlined in this guide average about 5-6 hours of easy walking time each day at 15-21 km (9-13 miles).

Plan for snack and photo stops here on the edge of the European continent overlooking cerulean blue seas with views of daring Portuguese fishermen in places that seem like they need a helicopter to get to.

Fishermen’s Trail Full route: 13 stages and 225 km (140 miles). This Cicerone Guidebook is a very helpful for planning.

How to Get to Trailhead at Porto Covo from Lisbon

Lisbon Airport (LIS Humberto Delgado) – Lisboa Sete Rios stationPorto Covo

Compared to the United States, public transportation is generally excellent in Portugal and inexpensive. Outside Porto and Lisbon, buses are the best. It’s possible to shorten or lengthen your hiking trip as there are bus stops in each of the main villages I’ve outlined.

For example, if you only have 3 days you can return to Lisbon from the 3rd village Zambujiera do Mar instead of going the full 4 days to Odeceixe.

Renting a one way car is not a viable option unless you hike all the way to Lagos (12 stages). Also the train options are much slower than buses and run inland.

Buses in Portugal are Excellent

Practical Information About the Fishermen’s Walk

One of the easiest long distance trails to just get up and go, but some planning in the “busy” season is needed to secure accommodation options such as hostels, hotels or cozy bnb private rooms.

On a bicycle tour of the Iberian peninsula and want to get off your butt on onto your feet? No problem, many of the hostels will hold your bike for you for 4-5 days to complete the walk.

Fishermens Trail  Rota Vicentina
Day 1 and impossible to get lost: keep the sea to the Right.

When to Hike the Fishermen’s Trail

The hike is accessible September through June.

October is the most popular time and you’ll have more restaurants open, but November is my all time favorite because the mountain season is over, yet the coastal weather is good, enough cultural places are open, and the main thrust of tourists have returned to school/work after Fall breaks.

July and August are less than ideal due to the heat and luggage transfers aren’t available.

According to Lamella’s, a female-chef owned restaurant in Porto Covo, there’s an unspoken agreement between food establishments to rotate and keep one nice restaurant in each village open to grow the off-season (hiking) eco-tourism in this typical summer vacation area.

Typical of Europe, most of the restaurants will take 2-3 weeks of a vacation and completely close but will post it on their window.

Cost for Fishermen’s Trail

Excluding the cost of travel to Lisbon, a 4 Day hike with a stay the night before in Porto Covo, the trip should cost:

  • Low end (excluding wild campers) 186 euros
  • High end & more comfort 500 euros

Budget: Hostel/snacking with only one simple meal eaten in restaurant: (36 bus + 100 hostel + 50 simple food) = 186 Euros

Free Dolomities Packing List

Bed and Breakfast, luggage transport and “Elevated Portuguese” meals with wine: (36 bus + 20 taxi + 60 luggage + 275 Bed & Breakfast + 100 elevated food + 20 wine) = 506 Euros

—>My free planning tool has a simple spreadsheet where you can track your actual expenses via a free mobile app called Airtable and links to planning websites and google coordinates of stations. Also standard spreadsheets.

Bus Transportation: 36 euros

Luggage Transportation: 60 euros (same price for 2)

Accomodations: Farm stay private room with breakfast for 2 with bathroom 50-60 euros, Upscale hotel with breakfast 55, Hostel with shared bathroom and breakfast 18-22.

Food costs will range but quality is high and prices are low relative to other European destinations.

Accommodations on the Fisherman’s Trail Route

A range of budget hostels, mid-range hotels and farm stays are available. Sustainable hotels are indicated on the booking.com website and I’ve listed my favorites that were open in November in each stage.

My Fishermen’s Trail Planner Tool is mobile-friendly to help you organize your nightly stay directly on the Trail.

Rota Vicentina Portugal : Luggage Transportation

Lisbon train stations and subway stations have lockers you can rent to store extra luggage that you don’t want to carry, or you can utilize the Vicentina Transfers company to lighten your load.

For 15 euros a transfer (2nd bag free), this dynamo couple of a team will pick up your bags at your accommodation around 9 am and deliver it to your next destination accomodation. You can book everything entirely online in English on their website and if you’ve got any changes you can use WhatsApp to communicate easily.

Nature Transfers also provides luggage transfer and you can contact them here.

Tips for Hiking the Rota Vicentina Portugal

  1. Follow the teal and blue signs, it’s almost impossible to miss. When presented with a fork in the path, it will be marked in teal and blue with a hash to indicate you’re going the wrong way.
Fishermen's Trail Signage - the cross sign is

2. Do the luggage transfer, with only a daypack you can explore the cliffs, dunes and mysterious abandoned mansions with a lighter load.

3. Be prepared for sand with lighter weight trail running shoes. Boots fill up fast and are heavy in the sand. Take the time to empty shoes and avoid blisters.

4. Bring sun and eye protection even in the winter months, there’s very little shade.

5. The Rota Vicentina app or Cicerone guidebook can help you navigate.

6. If you love food, go easy on the daytime snacks and seek out the hole in the wall places in tiny villages for lunch. You may need to do a lot of pointing and google translate as the villages are rustic and English may be limited.

7. Save room for a lovely dinner each night. Invite other hikers to sit with you for a drink or share a “caught this morning” fish, as the good ones are usually big enough for 2-4 people to share.

8. Plan your hike around one of the many local sweet potato festivals that brighten up the tiny villages and cause a party in November. This region is famous for the highly nutritious, diverse and delicious sweet potato (nothing like the orange atrocity typical in American grocery stores).

9. For a full gear guide that I personally tested check out the full list here (Coming soon).

Arrival and Travel Day: How to Get to Porto Covo from Lisbon

How to Get to Porto Covo

If coming from North America, get to the Lisbon airport (LIS Humberto Delgado Airport). Then you’ll want to make your way to Lisboa Sete Rios station. From here using the “Rede-expressos” bus company to get to the trailhead at the seaside town of Porto Covo.

Timetables do change with the seasons so start your planning here and plan your outgoing bus (16.50) to Porto Covo. Traffic can be challenging in Lisbon, so if you’re trying to get to Porto Covo on the day you fly into Lisbon you may want to have a morning flight arrival in order to get the late afternoon bus to Porto Covo.

I’d allow at least 2 hours commute time from the airport to the bus station in case of delays. Changing all of your nightly accommodations because you missed the bus won’t be much fun.

Book ahead online at Rede-Expressos bus company.

https://rede-expressos.pt/en/timetables

I had plenty of time to explore the TimeOut Market and wander through the exquisite tile-clad Alfama neighborhood on my arrival day before the bus ride to Porto Covo.

From Lisbon airport it’s simple to use google maps to find the correct subway (1-2 euros), or you can download the “Free Now” app for a private car (around 15-20 euros) to get to the bus station at Sete Rios.

While taxis are available in small villages, they often are booked and much more expensive. If you want to fly out of Faro airport instead of Lisbon, this is likely going to be your best bet and you’ll want to call well ahead of time to secure a taxi.

Where to Stay in Porto Covo Night Before Fisherman’s Trail

My Favorite:

I loved staying at Mute, a chic sustainable hostel directly on the ocean with a delicious breakfast included. Sitting on a deck overlooking the ocean with 3 cups of americano coffee and fresh eggs was a great way to start this adventure.

Budget:

For a lovely guest house featuring private bathroom and a great location in town check out Pé na Areia Alojamento Local.

Fancy:

Want to rent a whole house for sustainable travel right in Porto Covo? Chaparro Holidays – Big house with terrace will provide a lovely stay.

Where to Eat in Porto Covo

Try to get a reservation for Lamella’s for an interesting take on modern Portuguese cuisine. Female, chef owned and with elegant details such as dried and powdered cilantro.

fishermens trail

Fishermen’s Trail Stage 1: Porto Covo to Vila Nova Milfontes

Distance: 20 km, 12 miles
Difficulty: Moderate only due to sand
Time: 6-6:30
Ascent/Descent: Mild about 450 ft

Tips for Hungry Hikers: Grab coffee at the first seaside restaurant you see called ,A Ilha under Forte do Pessegueiro. Don’t order a latte, in Portugal this is a kids’ drink called Um galao and it’s a LOT of milk. I try to order the “meia de leite” which is more like coffee and milk.

Good luck though. Portuguese pronunciation is something of an art form as they don’t pronounce many of the vowels and run the words together, similar to the sound of Russian.

Coffee Ordering guide. Bring snacks for lunch as there’s not another village until the evening stop.

Wondrous and Unusual Points of Interest: Walk along the beach without your shoes as much as possible. There are paths more inland, but enjoy these stretches of pristine sand with abandoned fortresses on the dunes and islands reminding you of Portugal’s golden age of sailing and world dominance.

When possible veer onto the many single tracks that line the cliff’s edge, darting under rock formations and providing more landscape drama than the more often travelled sand path in the dunes. You’ll share this area with remote surfers and horseback riders.

—-Where to Stay in Vila Nova Milfontes Near Fishermen’s Trail

Try to get reservations at Tasca do Celso for dinner for elevated Portuguese. O pescador serves up great, traditional seafood.

My Favorite:

Casa de Eira is hands down the most friendly and pleasant hotel experience I’ve had in years due it’s elegant and delicious breakfast service, quiet rooms and incredible service by Rudolf.

He taught me so much about the history of the entire region and the fishermen’s trail.

I felt like the service was at the level of a 5 star city hotel, but in a tiny seaside village for 55 euros a night. I cannot recommend a stay here enough.

Great Option:

If Casa de Eira is booked, Selina Milfontes has a great vibe and jacuzzi to recover your legs.

Luxury:

For those that want to stay in complete luxury with high end amenities complete with ostrich and mules on the property in the middle of the Agro-Forest reserve, a stay at Tres Marias will delight.

fishermens trail day 2

Fishermen’s Trail Stage 2: Vila Nova Milfontes to Almograve

Distance: 15 km, 9 miles
Difficulty: Easy – Moderate
Ascent/Descent: Easy, about 500 ft
Time: 4:30 Short Route, 5:30-6:00 Fun Route

Tips for Hungry Hikers: Look for the Medronho berries alongside the road out of town and near the Vila Nova Milfontes bridge, they make excellent schnapps from it. They are wild berries that look like wild strawberries growing from a scrubby Mediterranean bush.

Wondrous and Unusual Points of Interest: Thanks to my history lesson from Rudolf at Casa de Eira, I learned that the town Fortress Forte de Sao Clemente in town is, in fact, a party boy’s private house. Lucky.

I also skipped the “ferry” most hikers take and walked through the town of Vila Nova MIlfontes and across the bridge over the River. Immediately on the right after the bridge grows the “Tuna Tree, not to be missed.

Then a stroll through an actual cork orchard allows you to see how it’s sustainably harvested. At the end of the orchard lies the most unusual cultural sight in probably all of Alentejo.

Sitting in a dried out field overlooking the river and ocean sits an abandoned architect’s house. Part art-deco, part decaying opulence and part vessel for thoughtful and political street art, it’s a canvas for artists from around Europe.

The 3 story building is filled with blown in sand, more street art inside, and local kids’ leftover party bottles placed into neatly tied plastic bags. Tidy litter? If exploring inside, beware as the floor is unsteady with it’s star shaped lighting fixtures dangling between floors.

The rest of the day is filled with natural wonders along the seaside trail, what feels like bushwhacking through dense grasses, and walks alongside grass farms and enclosed ostriches.

Upon entering Almograve just the the right, watch for the town “washing center” where villagers do their laundry outdoors old-school.

Try to catch sunset at the beach, dolphins love to pop out here on the beach.

—-Where to Eat & Stay in Almograve Near Fishermen’s Trail

Almograve is pretty small with only a few cafes open in the fall. 2 O Lavrador is simple and delicious, and any of the shops serve coffee & pastries or sandwiches for breakfast. Simply pick what you want them to include in a sandwich from the deli counter.

Fun Stay:

I thought the Almograve Beach Hostel was a great stay with comfortable 4 bedroom dorms and some private rooms. It’s got a full kitchen and shared bathroom and is very clean with self check in.

Not so Many Options Here:

Another option is HI Almograve – Pousada de Juventude, simple and located right in the village.

Fishermen’s Trail Stage 3: Almograve to Zambujeira do Mar

Distance: 21 km, 13 miles
Difficulty: Moderate
Ascent/Descent: Easy-Moderate, about 500 ft
Time: 5:30-6 hours

Tips for Hungry Hikers: Save room for lunch at Adelia snack bar in the village of Cavaleiro, it doesn’t get any more local than this. Here’s where you get a look into local families enjoying mid-day meal, aim for a weekend if possible.

Wondrous and Unusual Points of Interest: After dune walking, some farm roads and lunch in Cavaleiro, the cliffs begin again. At the Western most point of Alentejo, the Farol Cabo Sardao lighthouse marks the white stork extravaganza. The high dark grey, striated cliffs and islands rise sharply into dragon’s back triangular peaks with white storks nests perched impossibly on the sharp edges. The males swoop around with their impressive wingspan trying to woo their potential lovers.

Again like on day 1, fishermen are in treacherous places with only a pole, net and white plastic bucket. You’ll spy on ropes hung between sharp rocky peaks and wonder if that’s the way the fishermen got to their favorite spots?

Some beaches are accessible from the top of the 200 ft cliffs by walking, but the path includes ropes to help you get up and down the steeper parts. You’ll walk through Entrada do Barca and pass by the strangest house with golden Moorish details on the left before getting into Zambujeira.

—-Where to Eat & Stay in Zambujeira Near Fishermen’s Trail

This seaside town features beaches and many guest houses and restaurants. I opted to take a night off eating and hole up in my guesthouse (introverts recharge) for some mental and physical recovery, so I cannot recommend a place to eat but my trail friends remarked that most places served typical seafood. The kittens outside my door enjoyed the sardine and persimmon tin I left them from my hotel dinner.

My Favorite for Excitement:

Hostel Nature is a German ran and very efficient hostel. It has a big kitchen with free filtered water. I hung out here for a while with my new hiking friends, but I had to get out to where I reserved outside town. And no taxis answered my call in evening, but the owner came and fetched me with the excellent Portugese hospitality.

My Favorite for Peace:

Monte Das Alpenduradas is great if you want a quiet night to stay in a raspberry farm and enjoy a spectacular breakfast with roosters sounding off in the garden. It’s rooms are super comfortable, private, and have a full bathroom.

It’s 2 km outside town so arrange a taxi or ride. I actually hitched a ride back into the town with the Vicentina Transfers (luggage transfer) van to meet up with the gang to get back on the fishermen’s trail.

Farm Stay:

Sometimes it’s nice to get away from the action, and this trail has many offerings like a farm stay with your own apartment at Herdade do Kuanza. Again, arrange a taxi ahead of time or pickup from the hotel as it’s a bit outside town unless you want to add a few km to your trek.

Fishermen’s Trail Stage 4: Zambujeira do Mar to Odeceixe

Distance: 19 km, 12 miles
Difficulty: Easy – Moderate
Ascent/Descent: Moderate – It Gets Fun here going up and down the cliffs a bit. About 800 ft.
Time: 5-5:30 hours

Tips for Hungry Hikers: Get the Octopus confit for lunch on the Cliffside Café Palhinhas The kittens will sit patiently under your table for little tidbits and the entire cliffside hamlet is accessible for wheelchairs making it a local’s favorite for Sunday sunset dinner.

Wondrous and Unusual Points of Interest:
Today includes much more fun and exciting up and down along the cliff sides. You’ll pass by one of the most popular fado singer’s private houses and have breathtaking views of the sea almost all day until you turn inland to Odeceixe and follow the mouth of the river to your destination.

—-Where to Eat and Stay in Odeceixe Near Fishermen’s Trail

If you like cafe’s with a variety of vegetarian options and attention to local suppliers, eat at the cafe under the Bohemian Guest house. It had the best coffee that I experienced along the trail.

My Favorite:

Bohemian Antique Guest House is a charming and cozy, well decorated hostel located on the town’s central square. Highly recommended.

For Privacy:

Moradias Ode will allow you to have your own little holiday home and some quiet just a few minutes from the heart of the village.

For Luxury:

Casas de Moinha provides luxury rooms with gorgeous views and pool. Walk to the windmill and beaches and they have jacuzzi and massage services.


Where Next from Rota Vicentina Trail

You can continue on the Fishermen’s Trail by foot to Lagos, or take express buses (3:30 travel time) that leave in the morning hours (12:05 being the last bus) back to Lisbon or evening buses go south to Lagos. You can arrange taxis to get to Faro airport if needed.

Do not confuse local buses with the express. They will have different stops in the villages and you’ll need to purchase your tickets online prior to the trip. The bus drivers will not let you purchase your ticket onboard.

I hesitated on which bus to return from Odexiece and the website malfunctioned on my phone and laptop. I had a friend try on her phone and it continued to malfunction. Only once I asked a second person to help me out did it work.

According to locals, this is a frequent occurrence, so book well ahead online at Rede-Expressos bus company.
