Running & Walking

A simple way to keep fit and have fun with the family in the Algarve sunshine.

Running and walking in and around Vale do Lobo is an easy and enjoyable way to exercise. What could be simpler than slipping on a pair of trainers and exploring the resort along our dedicated running/walking paths?

We also host a series of weekly or monthly experiences, described below, ranging from a simple walk to trail running events, both prepared and guided by a professional coach.


Our 10K running experience starts at the resort reception and lasts around one hour.

Running is one of the most efficient physical exercises for those who want to lose weight healthily. It speeds up your metabolism, helping to burn calories more efficiently, and the effects continue a few hours afterwards.

That’s why it’s the regularity of physical activity that’s so important, not the number of hours spent working out in the same day.


Our 9K running experience usually lasts one hour and starts at the resort reception.

In both our running experiences, your teacher will guide you through a variety of techniques: Ramps (continuous hills), long run, progressive run, interval run and Fartlek. Fartlek (a Swedish term, meaning ‘speed play’) involves alternating between fast segments and slow jogs.

You’ll also perform stretching exercises to prevent injuries.



Our monthly Trail Walk experience usually lasts one hour and starts at the resort reception.

Walking is the perfect way to come in closer contact with nature.

This experience is all about discovering the greenest parts of the Vale do Lobo resort.


Our Resort Discovery Walk lasts one hour and starts at the resort reception. 

For the more energetic, there’s a 6km circular extension through some of the most beautiful parts of Vale do Lobo.

This is an experience for all – the aim is to achieve a good level of physical activity without excessive cardiovascular or joint impact.
