Follow curiosity, not crowds

One-of-a-kind outdoor adventures to the Algarve's wild West coast & Costa Vicentina Natural Park.

-- Since 2014 --

ALGARVE hiking & outdoor adventure tours
- Lagos, PORTUGAL -

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

Discover Europe's most undiscovered coastline on an active, educational, unconventional adventure deep into the Algarve's remote Costa Vicentina Natural Park, a.k.a. "The West Coast."

This is not the Algarve you expected: This is her wild side, a rugged, wondrous land once thought to be The End of the World, and a place that still today feels like it just might be.


And this is not a sightseeing tour: This is a full-sensory outdoor experience designed to challenge, inspire, and connect us with our surroundings, our senses, our companions, our selves... and our stomachs (๑ᵔ⤙ᵔ๑)

Sitting on the beach just isn't enough? This experience was made for you. 

Let's go West!

Forget everything you know about guided tours...

Forget everything you know about guided tours...


I create outdoor experiences that blend movement, action, & discovery with space for wonder, play, education, reflection, & appreciation, and are piled high with laughter, stories, music, food, wine, & more.


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; rustic, physical experiences over easy, mass-market ones.


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.

"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.

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