West Coast Hiking, Lagos Algarve Portugal, Vicentine Coast & Rota Vicentina

The "Classic" Adventure

MY original, signature, full-package West Coast experience

Join me for a full-day of hands-on exploring deep into the wilderness of the West coast, before finishing at the edge of Europe with a magical sunset and delicious picnic dinner under the stars.

Join a SMALL-GROUP TOUR, or create your own PRIVATE TOUR.

Okay, so here's the plan:

I hand-craft each journey to meet the unique possibilities of each unique day and each unique group, so no two trips are ever the same.

Each trip, however, grows out of my same West Coast recipe for adventure:

Step 1: Orientation

The Beginning:

Using maps and storytelling, we begin by building a foundation of awareness that will deepen the experience to come. Then, we'll drive West through Algarve countryside to the Costa Vicentina Natural Park.

- 1+ hours -

 

Step 2: Exploration

The Adventure:

We'll hike our way deep into the wild to discover Portugal's tallest cliffs, most dramatic viewpoints, and most secluded beaches. We'll immerse ourselves in the dramatic power of the rugged, natural world, far from civilization and other human visitors. We will work hard, but always at an easy-going pace, slowing down at every chance to learn, play, relax, and soak it all up.

- 5+ hours -

Step 3: Relaxation 

The Reward:

Our journey brings us at last to the End of the World, Europe's most Southwestern edge, in time for the sunset. As the sky turns dark, we'll settle in for a delicious homemade picnic dinner under the stars.

- 1+ hours -  

 

Step 4: Civilization

The Return:

Every great journey finishes where it started. We'll return home feeling refreshed, rewarded, and ready for a good night sleep, guaranteed.

- 45 min (sleep time not included) -

OPTION 1: Small-group Tour

Small group, big adventure

Let's remember the joy of reconnecting with our fellow travelers on this little rock around the sun :) 

 

Join a group tour and share the experience (and the cost!) with a small team of like-minded travelers, working together toward a common goal.

** Recommended for solo travelers, couples, and small groups of 5 or less.
