19 May – 31 May 2024
Indulge in the untamed beauty of Portugal’s coast, where nature’s masterpieces are unveiled through rugged shorelines, secluded coves, and sun-kissed dunes adorned with vibrant vegetation. Immerse yourself in the allure of charming whitewashed villages and surrender to the embrace of the refreshing Atlantic Ocean. The beaches will leave you breathless.
This is an unforgettable hiking experience, where the coastal vibes combined with the Sole Change transformational program weave their enchanting magic and transport you to an inner world beyond compare.
Welcome to Sole Change
I’m Deborah Cutting
What we do
Making yours a greater life with transformational journeys on foot.
I walked over 20,000 km in 29 countries to facilitate a greater life with greater love and to help others do the same.
I truly understood how profoundly healing and transformative nature and long-distance hiking are, because I was remade.
So I combined my great passions and extensive experience of hiking, facilitating, and personal and spiritual development, to help others realize the greater life that’s calling them.
Launch your Greater Life:
Join a Sole Change
Are you feeling overwhelmed and struggling with the bumps and grind of this rapidly changing, torn, and dismantling world? Is your mind a whirlwind of thoughts and emotions, leaving you feeling conflicted, anxious, or fearful? Do you feel a sense of isolation or disconnection from your true self, perhaps finding solace in unhealthy habits, conforming to societal expectations, or succumbing to the myriad of daily pressures, leading a life that doesn’t align with who you are and why you’re really here at this time? Are you plagued by a deep dissatisfaction and discomfort caused by the choices you’ve made or are about to make, which are diverting you from your true path?
This derailment you’re experiencing is actually a catalyst, urging you to embark on a profound journey of self-discovery, to understand your relationships, and to uncover the purpose of your existence at this very moment. If you’re questioning whether the rat race and your current life circumstances are all there is, and you’re seeking answers that provide clarity, certainty, and direction, then you have arrived at the right place, right now. Your energy is far more powerful than you realize, and it’s time to redirect it toward the greater life that is calling out to you.
YOUR GREATER LIFE CALL
Embrace your awakening and recognize the incredible gift that resides within you. It’s never too late, you aren’t beyond hope, and failure doesn’t define you. However, to return to your blueprint path, you must take action.
There is a profound transformation awaiting you and a powerful call to heed. It’s time to wholeheartedly receive the Greater Life that awaits you, unlocking your full potential, inner harmony, and boundless self.
Your well-being and the capacity to elevate yourself, nurture genuine maturity, and make a meaningful impact on others hinge upon the choices you make at this critical juncture. Contributing to humanity and serving others is ingrained in your heart. So, it’s time to grow and evolve. Your calling holds immense significance, and your response is crucial, not just for your own fulfillment, but for the liberation, safeguarding, and progress of humanity during this transitional phase of evolution.
Embarking on a Sole Change transformational journey will set you on the right course, fueling your well-being and deepening your utmost connection to fulfill your purpose and make the impact you were destined to make.

The breathtaking Portugal hike is rated as moderately challenging.
Embarking from Lagos and concluding in Porto Covo, this remarkable journey takes you along stunning clifftops, rugged coastlines, and picturesque beaches. Immerse yourself in the enchanting coastal ambiance that weaves its alchemical magic, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and inspired to pursue a greater life.
However, to fully enjoy this adventure, regular walking and preparation for sandy trails are essential. Be prepared to carry a loaded pack of up to 10kg and ensure your physical condition is in top shape. The hike includes challenging stretches of sand, beach, and dune walking, often requiring you to navigate narrow paths and ascend/descend cliffs to access the beaches. Along the clifftops, brace yourself for invigorating winds. Pack plenty of snacks and water to sustain you throughout each day’s 4-8-hour walking sessions.
To help you prepare, we provide a pre-hike training plan tailored to the demands of the Portugal trail, along with a pre-hike challenge to gauge your readiness.
