Follow curiosity, not crowds

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

Launching from Lagos, Portugal.

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 handcrafted, full-sensory outdoor experience that will leave you inspired, refreshed, rewarded... and your belly full.

Did I mention dinner under the stars?

Catch ya on the West side!

Launching from Lagos, Portugal


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, and are full of laughter, learning, 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.

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. 

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."

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.
