Hiking along Coastal Trails in the Cascais-Sintra Natural Park, Portugal

Hello Everyone !                     View 2012-03-07 15.26.33.jpg in slide show  vista from the coastal trail

We put in a day of serious hiking today.  A strenuous, often challenging 6 hour hike from Guincho Beach to Cabo da Roca, the western most point  in continental Europe.  We started early and the weather was glorious with temperatures ranging around 23 degrees celsius.   The scenery was mesmerizing.   The paths were narrow, often steep, through a beautiful heath like landscape with an amazing variety of flora and fauna.  We met no other hikers the entire time.  It was Mother Nature, the sparkling blue ocean, endless vistas and us.       View 2012-03-07 16.22.21.jpg in slide show 

We organized this hike, because several of our guests wanted a challenging  esperience.  Check-out www.parquesdasintra.pt and www.colinaflora.com for more information on the Sintra Natural Park and our guesthouse.
