Hi all,

Contemplating a Portugal trip this year, remote areas mostly with decent camping facilities (I believe wild camping is frowned upon...). Does anyone have a GPX tracking or route they wouldn't mind sharing please? Or thoughts on where to go (and where to avoid!). Duration probably 10 days excluding transit time.

Obrigado

Have you had a look at Wikiloc ?

HI

I traveled both Pyrenees and north Portugal in Oct-Nov 21. About 80% off road. 90% wild camping. I never saw or had any issues from anyone. I loved traveling Portugal its a very easy going place. Experienced lots of great off road track, though some were very tricky and tight and set the pulse running.

Here is a link to my GPX files for Portugal only, let me know if you like the Pyrenees as well.

Here is a link to pictures of both Pyrenees and Portugal. I'm hoping you can match up the date taken with the GPX date. Might help give you and idea of what you might see along the track

For this and the Iceland trip I solely used Gaia GPS, on my Android tablet and phone and on the PC. I use it for road, walking and cycling. I find it very useful for planning walks, due to back issues, I'm limited on how far I can hike.

Also use Park4Night, and google maps. Found some great overnight stops using Park4Night.

Let me know if you have any issues with accessing the files, I'll figure out another way to get them to you.

Please do ask if there is anything else you might think I can help with.

Regards
Gary
