Wild journeys of discovery for body, mind, soul & stomach

Somewhere out there -- beyond the bars & beach cafés, past the last paved road, to the very edge of the map -- you will find a secret, surprising Algarve...

 

Journey there with me and discover Western Europe's last remaining coastal wilderness on a hands-on, handcrafted, full-sensory outdoor experience that you won't soon forget, promise ;)

One-of-a-kind hiking adventure tours to the Algarve's wild West Coast and historic End of the World

Forget everything you know about guided tours...

I create active, educational, unconventional outdoor experiences that blend movement, action, and discovery with space for wonder, reflection, appreciation & surprise, then are sprinkled all over with laughter, learning, stories, music, food & more.

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

My aim is simple and 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. 

Oh, and did I mention dinner under the stars? There's so much more to discover... 

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

"Unique, surprising, and beautiful... one of the most remarkable outdoor travel experiences I’ve had. T.J. was brilliant at bringing the group together, and the way he ended the evening was wonderful and creative. I couldn’t recommend this tour more highly."

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

@sunsetsandcoconuts

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

@matt.ryall

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