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 West coast's most awesomely remote corners, culminating at the Southwestern edge of Europe with a magical sunset and homemade picnic dinner & wine under the stars.

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

Okay, so here's the plan:

I craft each journey to meet the unique and unpredictable possibilities of that day and group, so two trips are ever the same.

Each adventure, however, grows out of the same Basic Adventure Recipe:


Step 1: Orientation

Using maps, stories, and games, we will begin by building a foundation of awareness that will deepen the experience to come. Then, we'll drive West through beautiful Algarve countryside to the Vicentine Coast Natural Park.

- 1.5 hrs -


Step 2: Exploration 

This is the action and adventure part: We'll hike our way deep into the wild, across Portugal's tallest sea cliffs, most dramatic viewpoints, and most secret beaches. We'll immerse ourselves in the raw, dramatic power of the natural world, far from civilization and other human visitors. We will move at a relaxed pace, going slow so we can learn, relax, play, explore, and soak it all up along the way.

- 4.5+ hrs -

Step 3: Final Relaxation 

This is the culmination and reward for our efforts. Our journey brings us at last to the End of the World, Europe's most Southwestern corner, in time for a West coast sunset, then we'll settle in for a delicious picnic dinner under the stars.

- 1.5 hrs -  


Step 4. Return to Civilization 

It is inevitable, but worry not: We'll return home from this journey feeling refreshed, rewarded, and ready for a good night sleep, guaranteed.

- 45 min (sleep time not included) -

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. Group size is max 10.

OPTION 1: Small-group Tour


OPTION 2: private Tour

An adventure just for you

Everyone's sense of adventure is unique.

Create a Private Tour, and I'll craft a fully customized experience to match your group's adventuring hopes and dreams, no matter how bold, or modest, they might be.

Read My COVID Promise.


My tours are designed to be inclusive and accessible to people of all kinds. However, they are also active, physical experiences and so require... 

  • A normal-good level of health and fitness.

  • The desire to put in a good effort.

  • The ability to (potentially) overcome challenges with a smile :)

  • A sense of curiosity & the spirit for adventure.

PRIVATE TOURS are customized to meet your group's interests and abilities. After booking, I will work with you to create an experience that's just right.



Dinner is a delicious picnic of locally-inspired tapas & wine, highlighting the regions rich & diverse tradition of flavors. It's healthy, fresh, and friendly to almost all eaters, including veggie, vegan, & gluten-free: Meat, cheese, & bread are served on the side.


Trips depart about 4 times per week. Simply Request a Booking and we'll find a day that works for you.
