The Algarve is famous for its beautiful beaches, pleasant climate and friendly people. There is something for everyone, whether you want an active holiday or just want to enjoy the peace and tranquility, everything is possible.
Although so well known for its beaches, rocky landscapes and luxury golf courses the Algarve offers so much more.
Cycling and walking routes through the whole of the Algarve, the most famous of which is the Via Algarviana which crosses the Algarve from east to west but there are many more routes which are just as stunning.
Boat trips along the Arade river, visit and snorkel around the coastal caves, with crystal clear water are just a few of the other options.
Some examples of excursions with nature guides:
- Bird-watching trips with one of the best ornithologists in southern Portugal. He knows the birds and sites inside out and can also arrange boat trips to view the seabirds if required.
- Reptile and amphibian excursions
- Wild orchid excursions in stunning habitats.
- Watching and helping with bird ringing surveys.
Information available about the many well known and lesser known walking and mountain biking routes. For the less well known routes there are also guides available who can go with you to help you explore these hidden treasures. We can drop you at your desired starting location and/or collect you from your finishing point.
Other options include baking bread in wood ovens, deep sea fishing, horse riding etc.
