Parque Natural das Serras de Aire e Candeeiros
This sponsored walk is open to everyone, whether they have a dog or not.
The tracks are mainly sandy limestone and pretty even with a small part on a small road at the beginning, good walking footwear is advisable.
Please be aware you may come across other walkers and cyclists. Please respect others and keep your dogs under control whilst we do the sponsored walk.
There will be a €5 fee to join the walk, all going to Dogs of Portugal, plus the option to donate more if you wish.

It is a fairly straightforward route driving along the N8 through Alcobaça, Aljubarrota, Olheiros, Cumeira de Baixo, Cumeira de Cima, Albergaria,Cruz da Legua, Moitalina, Chão da Feira, across the IC2, then head towards Porto do Mos.
In Porto do Mos you need the N243 Rua do Rio Alcaide to Livramento for a short while then the N362 Estrada de Santarém to Ribeira de Cima. Stay on the N362 which becomes the Rua Principal driving through Manhosa, Pragais to Serro Ventoso.
As you come into Serro Ventoso take first right onto Rua do Moinho to Bezerra.
As you come to Bezerra take first right onto Rua das Figueirinhas, as you drive along this road you will see a sandy football pitch, this is where we will park up and start the walk.
