What you'll do

Stunning Views, caves and a sunset awaits you on the Algarves southern coast. The Seven Hanging Valleys Trail is arguably the most stunning stretch of the southern Algarves coastline and following it allows us to see unique views of this awesome coastal landscape. We'll take our time, walking the trail one way from Vale Centianes Beach to a sunset tapas style dinner at Praia da Marinha. Along the way you'll see some of the most amazing natural sea stacks, sinkholes, complex limestone caves and a mix of turquoise ocean and warm-coloured cliffs. We'll have the opportunity to stop off and explore more areas in more detail depending on conditions. We have experience in this area and can show you spots you'd likewise miss out on seeing!

Our last destination, and the spot for our sunset (homemade) dinner will be at Praia da Marinha. Marinha is considered one of the most iconic beaches in the Algarve. It's considered by the Michelin Guide as one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in Europe and as one of the 100 most beautiful beaches in the world.​ Feel free to swim while we prepare the dinner! From here we will drive you back to Lagos.

Great way to spend a day outside of Lagos - would recommend to anyone that likes hiking. Chris was a great guide and we really enjoyed the tapas as well.

Superbe randonnée sur la côte de l'Algarve avec des paysage a couper le souffle. Chris est une personne tres sympathique, accueillante avec une bonne connaissance des lieux et des plantes qu'il nous a fait sentir. Il a toujours été très attentionné et ouvert à toute discussion. La randonnée est adaptée pour des marcheurs non confirmés bien qu'elle soit un peu sportive. Température idéale a cette époque de l'année et oeu de monde sur les chemins. A la fin de la journée le repas préparé par Chris était vraiment délicieux !! Merci pour cette journée !

Fun hiking tour along the coast! Chris is a great host who made us feel really welcome. Had some laughs and really enjoyed the tasty tapas and wine at sunset.

A wonderful experience. Nice 8 km hike alongside the coast. Breathtaking views from the cliffs, with beautiful beaches, caves, arches. Stop at Benagil beach, swim to the famous cave, amazing. Chris is a superb guide/host, very friendly, who shares his knowledge about nature and local plants, which I found specially interesting. End of the hike, with view on the cliffs and ocean, Chris served self-made food (all veggie as to our wish) with mostly local and Portuguese ingredients, accompanied by a good red wine, just a perfect finish. Highly recommended tour.

This was a beautiful experience, I was travelling solo and there were two fellow travelers who took this experience. We started on time, Chris picked me up right next to my hotel so i had little trouble in locating and finding the starting location. The hike was memorable with a lot of picturesque viewpoints on the way which honestly i would have missed out if not for Chris. The hike was moderately challenging due to the summer sun and some steep hikes and distance but it was fairly manageable and moderately fit ppl can easily complete this. We also stopped near the famous Benagil beach for a quick swim and close the day by having dinner by the beach side with the sunsetting in front of us. Chris was very thoughtful with the choice of food (got homemade chick peas curry ) and multiple vegetarian options. Chris also has this easy going, friendly, positive vibe and it didn't took long for all of us to connect with him, he shared a lot of personal stories, shared details about the flora and fauna of the surroundings . I was delighted to have chosen this experience as I would have surely not down this hike on my own ( as the trails are not clearly marked) and also wouldn't have gotten so many insights of the place. I though wished that the group could have been a bit bigger as that would have provided opportunities to meet more ppl. But overall a very satisfying experience. Good luck Chris!
