What you'll do

Experience the Algarve like never before - spend the day with a local guide for an off the beaten track adventure!

Your guide will meet you at your accommodation at the start of your truly unforgettable day!

This experience is designed to show you the most incredible places in the Western Algarve and will be a way to get to know the way of life in the rural Algarve, where the locals still make honey and medronho (a traditional Portuguese spirit) in the traditional way.

It is the perfect opportunity to travel unknown paths including off-road, in a Portuguese jeep!

You will travel to the highest peak in the Algarve (Fóia) where you can enjoy a breathtaking 360° view on a clear day. Along the way, you’ll stop for lunch and taste the best local produce the rural Algarve has to offer.

On the way back, you’ll have time to see some incredibly beautiful beaches. 

Your guide will tell you all about the rural Algarve traditions, you’ll have lunch in a traditional Portuguese restaurant situated in the mountains, with amazing views, you’ll try typical Algarvian desserts, taste medronho and melosa ( a honey liqueur)  as you get off the beaten path in a Portuguese jeep. 

We can’t think of a better way to experience the true Algarve!

Pedro Urgel

Born and raised in the delightful city of Porto, apart from a two year stint living in Scotland in my younger days, I have lived in Portugal all my life. When I was around 35, myself and a couple of my travelling friends (one of which is my brother), decided to set up our company. We set out scouting Portugal, visiting the places no one visits, meeting people, exploring landscapes discovering all these authentic towns. We know the country like the back of our hands, so when you go on one of our experiences you get an experts insight and learn so much more than you would visiting alone.
