Algarve West Coast Walking Hiking & Outdoor Adventure Tours, Lagos Portugal, Costa Vicentina & Rota Vicentina

THE
"CLASSIC"
ADVENTURE

My original, signature, full-package West Coast experience

This is my quintessential adventure: A full-day, hands-on journey deep into the most wild and wondrous corners of the coastline, finishing at the edge of Europe for a magical sunset and well-earned picnic dinner and wine.

There is no checklist itinerary here. Each tour is crafted from scratch, each adventure unique and unpredictable. 

 

All of my adventures, however, are built from four essential parts...

Part 1: Orientation
Setting the stage.

 

Using maps and storytelling, we begin by building a foundation of awareness -- both of this place and of each other -- that will deepen the experience to come. Then, we'll hop in my old van and drive West through the Algarve countryside to the remote Costa Vicentina Natural Park.

>> 1 + hour

Part 2: Exploration
The action & adventure.

We'll hike across Portugal's tallest cliffs, most awesome landscapes, and most secluded beaches. We'll immerse ourselves in the natural world, and learn the land's many mysteries and histories. Maybe, we'll swim in the sea. We will work hard, but always at a relaxed pace, slowing down at every chance to learn, listen, play, feel, and soak it all up.

>> 5 hours

Part 3: Relaxation
The reward for our efforts.

Our journey ends at The End, Europe's most Southwestern edge, in time for a magical sunset. As the sky darkens, we'll enjoy a surprising cliff-top picnic dinner featuring a spread of traditional and adventurous Algarvian flavors, plus wine, stories, and more. This is an experience all on it's own. 

>> 1.5 hours.

Part 4: Civilization
The return...

All great journeys finish back where they started... We will return from our journey under the cover of darkness, feeling refreshed, rewarded, and ready for a good night sleep, guaranteed. I'll even drop you off at your door in Lagos :) 

>> 45 min (sleep time not included).
