Hiking

Hiking

The Arrabida National Park is home to the best hiking trail in the vicinity of Lisbon, and its a mere 5 minutes drive from the city of Setubal.

The trailhead is located about 100 feet down the road from the Convento da Arrabida.

It runs down the extremely steep slope of the mountain, along a rugged, partly washed-out trail that winds through heavy foliage, including fragrant wild rosemary bushes.

The views of the sea on the way down are spectacular and worth stopping to savor.

At the bottom, hikers should follow the road to Portinho da Arrabida and the oceanography Museum.

Along the way, there is a large orphanage that looks like a hotel or dormitory on the left.

Across from this is a path that leads down to a sea cave.

The main road itself leads to a small village with a few good seafood restaurants and a nice beach, and at the end of the road are the ruins of a Roman salt fish works.

This is a one-way trail, so the return trip means going back by the same route.

What to take with you

Sturdy walking boots and walking socks (with a change of socks rucksack), rucksack/day pack, swimming costume, water bottle, insect repellent, sun glasses, sun hat, sun block/cream, compass, torch and a first-aid kit.

We invite you spend some of your vacations and holidays time visiting Arrábida Hills.
