Portugal, Cape St Vincent

Portugal, Cape St Vincent Overview

Portugal, Cape St Vincent - Walks and Orchids on the Edge of Europe - is a gently paced walking holiday in search of the orchids, endemic plants and migrant birds on Cape St Vincent in the spring. Running 28 Mar - 4 Apr 2021 (max 14 guests) this tour has expert guides & includes a boat trip plus visits to museums, 14C churches & mediaeval castles.

Jutting into the Atlantic, 9° west of Greenwich, Cape St. Vincent marks Europe’s most south-westerly point. From here, Prince Henry the Navigator sent forth his caravels during Portugal’s Golden Age of Discoveries. Now largely protected as a National Park, the Cape provides scenic coastal walks with a plethora of wildflowers, including orchids, and migrant birds.

Comfortably based in a traditional 4 star Pousada and a pleasant Alentejo hotel, we enjoy excellent seafood and Portuguese wines, explore the historic small towns of the area and also spend a day walking and birdwatching on the immense open plains of the Baixo Alentejo, carpeted with spring wildflowers beneath the holm oaks.
