The Algarve - when Britain begins to shiver, the Algarve is still bathed in warm sunshine. Ideal in October/ November and March  for walking, warm yet not too hot to enjoy striding out along the coast or in the St Vincent National par or the Monchique mountains.

We have chosen this time of year - in late October or early November - to get  a little sun in before winters chill, and March - as we emerge from the cocoon of winter, the Algarve is a riot of spring flowers and the sunshine just bathes you and seduces you to relax.

Super hotels, relaxed walking, good company and food.  Join our walking  break and be invigorated .

The Algarve is kissed by the Gulf stream, keeping it warm all the year round, The walking is excellent - besides the spectacular and dramatic coastline, the interior is varied, with a number of landscapes. The local flora varies from area to area - from the Monchique mountains to the rolling foothills and dramatic limestone escarpments. We base ourselves in the western part of the Algarve - some of the walks really are secret. All the more interesting for that.

What Others Said...

Majorca - October 2019. A gem of a company. I thought the whole holiday was brilliant and would not have changed a thing - except for the mosquito bites. All the walks were well planned, explained and included everyone in the group. It was good that we did the harder days just before and just after out day off. Hotel was very comfortable, and the staff were friendly. Good position in resort. Food was very good with lots of choices. All communications with Secret Hills Walking were very prompt and clear. Pre-holiday information all very clear, informative and was good to have mobile numbers – just in case. All well organised. Jill contacted me before I flew as well, which I appreciated. It’s the first time I have flown abroad by myself so was a little nervous, but I needn’t have worried as everything was so well planned. I definitely would reserve another holiday and recommend to others. I have filled the form in for another exiting adventure and can’t wait for it to be confirmed. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for organising these walking holidays. You are a gem of a company and I am lucky to have found you.
