The river Guadiana is a 745-kilometre long that begins in La Mancha, goes through southern Extremadura to enter Portugal and back to Spain to make the natural border between Andalucia and the Algarve.

Wonderful walk
The river that joins two countries

The Guadiana is one of the big rivers of the Iberian Peninsula and its beautiful final part is navigable for small boats. The recently conditioned Camino Natural del Guadiana allow us to complete a fantastic 19-kilometre walk at ease with some ups and downs passing through shrubs, dehesas, orchards, a mining village, a green way and a causeway that finishes in the lovely town of Sanlucar de Guadiana.

There is no better place to work out, come with us!

Itinerary

Our start is an old Guardia Civil’s station near Pomarao in Portugal, recently connected to Spain by a new bridge. We follow a lovely narrow path along the river bank towards Puerto de la Laja, an important harbour in the beginning of the 20th Century to take the manganese off from the near mines. The dismantled railway makes our trail until we go back to the river’s edge where an old Roman causeway drives us to the charming Sanlucar de Guadiana with its Portuguese twin town of Alcoutim on the other side.

Length of the tour

19 Km / 12 miles.

It usually takes us 6 hours to do this walk including the lunch stop and two snack breaks.

Maximum elevation

150 m / 450 feet.

Level of difficulty

Moderate to strenuous.

The length of this walk could make the last ups and downs before Sanlucar a bit challenging.

We recommend a ratio of 10 people a guide although we can take up to 15 people per guide.
