Location: Portugal

We are once again offering you the chance to relive the experience of travelling on now closed railway lines in northern Portugal, albeit at a much slower pace than was possible by train! But the scenery is the same, and now we have much more time in which to enjoy it.

This year we will walk the closed section of the Vale do Vouga Line which ran between Aveiro and Viseu. Part of the line, from Aveiro to Sernada do Vouga, is still open, so on our first day we will ride on a train as far as Macinhata to visit the charming little museum before making the short hop by train to Sernada in time for lunch. We then begin our walking in earnest as we follow the old alignment towards Viseu, walking on average 15 km per day. Each morning our transport will take us to the starting point of the walk for that day, and collect us at the end of the day and bring us back to Aveiro. All seven nights will be in the lovely town of Aveiro. On one of the days, we will take a break from walking to travel by train along the northern section of the line from Oliveira de Azeméis to Espinho.

At this time of year, the weather should be comfortable and without the excessive heat experienced in the summer months. On the walking days, we aim to cover an average of 15 km per day.
