Cycling and Walking are both good clean fun and It’s COMPLETELY FREE!. The Algarve offers numerous trails, with different views, variety of terrain and spiritual-like experiences for both hikers and cyclers. Portimão, the Sierra de Monchique is a great place for hiking as there are kilometres of trails and natural paths where you can discover the natural beauty of inland Algarve. If you´d rather breath the fresh ocean air, you can always opt for a walk on the beach.  Cycling is becoming one of the best ways of getting around and seeing all of the sights.  If you fancy a day out on a bike, there's a fantastic trip where you are taken to the highest point in the Algarve Foia above Monchique and then you cycle down to sea level on quiet country roads. Cycle helmets and lunch are provided and you are accompanied all the way. The views are fantastic and the great thing is that it's mostly downhill.
