Each week up to two walks are organised in the Silver coast region of Portugal.

Every Wednesday we hold a short walk (max 7 km) and on alternate Fridays we hold a long walk (10 to 20 km).

Everyone is welcome to join a walk, you can do a voluntary donation to cover costs of organisation.

People walk at their own risk. Dogs are welcome, but must be kept under control.

    The Walk

    A short walk from Famalicão on the shrubby slopes of Serra de Pescaria

    The walk is along beaten-earth tracks and a stretch of quiet road. The countryside is hilly with a long ascent at the start and one fairly steep, shorter section. The countryside is open with low shrubs and some pine and eucalyptus trees. In wet weather some of the tracks may be muddy and slippery. Bring your poles and wear waterproof shoes.


    The walk is about 6,5 km and is expected to take about 1,5 hours
