Along the Coast - Walking Self-Guided Program... an adventure waiting for you!

The main aim of this program is to offer the participants a chance to know one of the most beautiful coasts of Europe.
The Vicentine Coast offers a big variety of fauna and flora, and diverse landscapes that will definitly catch your attention!
Another plus of this experience is the mouth watering gastronomy you will get to taste, and the comfortable rural accomodation that will provide you with deep levels of relaxation.
It is very easy to arrive, given the quick and easy accesses. The difficulty will be to depart and leave behind a handful of feelings that only the Vicentine Coast can offer.
More than a challenge, the Vicentine Coast is a way of living…
