Hey there, traveler!

Discover one of Europe's most undiscovered coastlines on an unconventional adventure deep into the Algarve's Costa Vicentina Natural Park, a.k.a. "The West Coast." 

No, this is not the Algarve you expected: This is her wild side, Europe's most rugged and remote coastline, a place once thought to be the actual End of the World

And this is not a sightseeing tour: This is a full-sensory outdoor experience designed to activate the body, quiet the mind, energize the soul & satisfy the stomach...

Oh yeah, did I mention the food & wine?


Follow me, and Let's Go West!

Forget everything you know about guided tours...

My tour is different:

I create outdoor experiences that blend movement, action, & discovery with space for wonder, reflection & learning. Then, I pile them high with laughter, learning, & playfulness, and finish them off with a one-of-a-kind sunset food & wine experience.

My approach is my own:

I choose wilderness & remoteness over guidebook tourist destinations; intentional, mindful travel over superficial sightseeing; interaction & collaboration over passive following-along; discovery & learning opportunities over photo opportunities; improvisation & flexibility over checklist traveling; rustic, physical experiences over easy, mass-market ones.

My expertise is incomparable:

For over 10 years, I have been the only dedicated hiking guide in the Algarve. There is no similar experience around: I follow no one else's paths or itineraries, go where no other tours go. This is not just off the beaten path, it's off the unbeaten path, too :)

My aim is simple and sincere:

I hope to share a travel experience that's not just fun, but meaningful; not just good for you, but good for the world; not just a social media moment, but a memory for life. 

But don't just take my word for it...

"A beautifully curated experience. From the locations and hike, to the food and wonderful company, every aspect has been so carefully considered... I’ve been traveling to Portugal for over ten years and this is hands down the best experience I have had there! I highly, highly recommend!"

Bucket list-worthy hike with @westcoastlagos to stunning Cape St Vincent. A truly unforgettable day.


Today, I traveled to the end of the world. My heart is so full it's bursting. It has been the most incredible experience. 


What a special experience. It was far from just a hike. It was a learning experience, both intellectually and spiritually. Trust me. Do it.


Was really surprised how a shared experience of nature can make a group of strangers feel as though they've known each other forever.


An awe-inspiring day on the west coast of Portugal with the best tour guide



Today I chased a sunset to the end of the world. It was beyond amazing.
