The romantic land of “fados” . . . an ideal destination for walking and cycling? Perhaps this is not an obvious connection to make, yet an active holiday in historic Portugal combines spectacular coasts, steep cliffs and sunny beaches with the undiscovered inland treasures of unique villages and unspoilt scenery. Time here seems to have literally stood still. Follow beautiful trails past stately “quintas” and medieval walled towns or along Atlantic shores with sweeping ocean views.
