journeys of discovery for body, mind, soul & stomach
Somewhere out there... beyond the crowded beaches, past the last paved road, to the very edge of the map... you'll find hiding a wild & undiscovered Algarve.
Journey there with me for an active, educational, unconventional outdoor adventure you won't soon forget, promise.
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
first of all, this is not a sightseeing tour.
Forget everything you think you know about guided tours: This is something surprisingly, refreshingly different.
I create small-group, off-the-map hiking adventure experiences blend movement, action, and discovery with space for wonder, reflection, education, and appreciation. Then, I sprinkle it all with laughter, stories, music, food, and wine... lots of food and wine :)
I hope to share with you not just a fun time, but a valuable time; not a social-media moment, but a memory for life.
So, join me for a rewarding, full-sensory outdoor experience that will leave you sweaty, satisfied, inspired... and your belly full.
Did I mention the food and wine?
made with love and utterly unique
Since 2013, I've put my whole heart into crafting, refining, and sharing this tour experience, one small batch at a time.
My approach is unconventional: I choose wilderness & remoteness over guidebook tourist destinations; intentional, mindful travel over superficial sightseeing; discovery & learning opportunities over photo opportunities; rustic, physical experiences over easy, mass-market ones.
a journey to a land far, far away
This is not the Algarve you expected...
This is her magical, mysterious, mesmerizing West Coast, one of Europe's best preserved and last remaining coastal wildernesses.
This is a place thought for millennia to be the actual End of the World, and a place that still today feels like it just might be.
This is the Algarve's wondrous, wild West Coast.
extra-or that challenge & inspire
I get it: You don't want just another ordinary vacation. Sitting on the beach just isn't enough. This trip, you want something meaningful, something memorable, something more.
So, let's remember together that sense of accomplishment that comes after some good hard work; that deep appreciation that comes by slowing down; that joy that comes by disconnecting and reconnecting with our senses, our companions, our surroundings, and ourselves.
but don't just take my word for it...
"A beautifully curated experience. From the locations and hike, to the food and wonderful company, every aspect has been so carefully considered... I’ve been traveling to Portugal for over ten years and this is hands down the best experience I have had there! I highly, highly recommend!"
