No, this is a one-of-a-kind outdoor adventure experience deep into the Algarve's wild & wondrous West coast -- southern Europe's last undiscovered coastline and continental Europe's most remote piece of land. We'll leave the pavement behind and use our hands, feet, legs and hearts to go where no one else goes, off the map and into the wild places of this magical landscape. Our journey will take us hiking, hopping and clambering to the coast's most secret and spectacular spots to experience a type of extraordinary, secluded beauty you just didn't expect from the Algarve, or anywhere in Europe. These are some of the most raw and astounding coastal landscapes left on the continent. You will be surprised. Along the way we'll go slow to soak up all the sights, sounds, smells and textures of the cliffs and sea, and the landscape will come to life with stories about the strange and awesome rock forms, wildflowers, and history that surround us. And ahh yes, we'll end with a sunset, a magical, mystical, epic sunset from the clifftops thought for thousands of years to be the End of the World, a grand finale to our day of adventuring. We'll fill our bellies with delicious local food and wine, squeezing every last ounce out of the day, and hike back out under the darkening sky and rising stars. I am just one man with one van, and try my best to offer a sincere, intimate outdoor experience. Groups are limited to eight, and by sunset everyone feels part of a family, sharing stories, laughs, and drinks. This is not just a tour, and it's not just an outdoor adventure, it's an experience, and one unlike any other in the Algarve. All trips are tailored to group needs, abilities, and character, and are suitable for anyone in respectable physical condition. « less
