About The West Coast Adventure Co.
Hey there, traveler! Since 2013, I have been crafting, refining, & sharing one-of-a-kind hiking adventures to the Algarve's wild West coast & historic End of the World, one small batch at a time. My approach is unconventional: I create hands-on, full-sensory outdoor experiences that blend movement, action, and discovery with space for wonder, reflection, education, and surprise, then I sprinkle it all with laughter, stories, music, food, and wine. I choose wilderness & remoteness over guidebook tourist destinations; intentional, mindful travel over superficial sightseeing; discovery & learning opportunities over photo opportunities; and rustic, physical experiences over easy, mass-market ones. My aim is simple & sincere: To share a travel experience that's not just fun, but meaningful; not just good for us, but good for the world; not just a social-media moment, but a memory for life.

Best part of our trip! What a great adventure!!! TJ was very informative, great communication behind the booking before and after. TJ was a great guide. There were 7 of us ladies, we celebrated our 40th birthday with this hike. Lisbon was a treat but this was far more fun than shopping, eating and drinks! If you’re up for a fun excursion, book with TJ!

Absolutely amazing trip. One of the best views and experiences I've had in my life. To keep my recommendation short - DO IT!!! Coincidentally, I've met other people who've done the trip randomly and they all have the same feedback. They've all loved it.

THIS WAS EPIC! If you are considering booking this tour, then DO IT. A beautiful hike along the West Coast that you wouldn't be able to do on your own. TJ has a lot of knowledge about the area and the history of the coastline. It was a nice combination of flat walking with views and a bit more body-involved climbing on rocks to get into little nooks and crannies to explore. You end up on a secluded beach and get to go into the water if you'd like. Then TJ took us to "the end of the world" and we got to watch the sunset - STUNNING. After that, a dinner under the stars - TJ MADE THE FOOD AND IT WAS FREAKING AMAZING. Probably some of the best food we had on the trip and locally inspired. I'd do the trip again in a heartbeat.
