Atlantic Coast & Lima Valley
Golden beaches, blue and green landscapes, medieval cities
Welcome to Portugal, a country with 850 km of spectacular golden beaches! Your walking holiday will begin in the fishing village of Esposende, right in the middle of the Northern Coast Natural Park. The combination of river and sea make of Esposende a haven of calm and natural magical landscapes. Enjoy the hullabaloo of the fishing industry, one of the local families’ traditional activities, as you watch the small, brightly coloured fishing boats arrive with their daily catches of fresh fish and seafood that will be served in the restaurants. Amble along the paths in the Natural Park bordering the Atlantic and discover long, golden beaches perfumed by the tide.
Viana do Castelo, a coastal city boasting a wealth of medieval architecture, is the Portuguese folklore capital and the cradle of several Portuguese discoverers.
Ponte de Lima, the most ancient village in Portugal. You will not be indifferent to the intense blue waters of the Lima River that flow under the Roman bridge and its beautiful ogival arches or to the medieval route taken by pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela,. At your leisure, explore the many roads that link multiple small villages, past lush vineyards fields, onwards through the Lagoas Protected Landscape, a haven and habitat for more than 500 species of plants and animals native to the region. A truly inspiring scenic environment!
