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

The 'Classic' Adventure

MY original, signature, full-package West Coast experience

Journey West with me for a full-day, hands-on exploration of the coast's most wild & remote corners, finishing in style with a magical West Coast sunset from our secluded clifftop at the edge of Europe. 

After squeezing every last drop out of the day, dinner & wine under the stars never felt so sweet.

Okay, so here's the plan...

No two trips are exactly the same. However, on each tour we will...

1. GET ORIENTED

We'll begin our journey by gaining an awareness of the land we will discover.

5. LEARN THE LAND

We'll uncover the land's rich natural & cultural histories up close.

6. SLOW DOWN

We go at a relaxed pace & take plenty of breaks to relax, play, explore, & soak it up.
