Planning to do my first walk this year (2017)

Looked at different suggestions on how to walk from Lisbon to Fatima. And overall it looks like it could be quite long hikes last days as most suggestions are:

Azambuja – Santarem (32 km)
Santarem - Amiais de Baixo (26 km) or Santarem to Monsato (33 km)
Amiais de Baixo – Fatima (24 km)

Does anyone have any good suggestion on how to hike if we add an extra day. My girlfriends limit is about 25 km a day.

Also looking for overal tips on alberque along the full way.

Appreciate any help

I think you have the right distances. There isn't much between Azambuja and Santarem. Due to weather I got off the Camino at Porto de Muge and followed the backroads to the railway station at Carataxo. There are frequent trains from there to Santarem station. That would limit the walk to about 25k. Note that the Santarem railway station is on the north end of Santarem so the walk back from there adds a couple of K or more depending on where you stay.

I'll bet that there are places to stay in Cartaxo but I didn't search.

That would make the next two days also at the limit of 25K. You could plan it and if your girlfriend has reached her limit you could always just take the bus from Santarem to Fatima.

I've attached the track (Google Earth KML) file so that you can see how I walked it. Rename the file extension from .txt to .kml before you try and open it.

Also, here is my speeded up video of the days walk:

Buen Camino
