The "Classic" Adventure
MY original, signature, full-package West Coast experience
Join me for a full-day of hands-on exploring deep into the coast's most awesomely remote corners, culminating with a magical West coast sunset and homemade picnic dinner & wine under the stars.
Join a SMALL-GROUP TOUR, or create your own PRIVATE TOUR.
So here's the plan:
Each trip is hand-crafted to unlock the unique possibilities of that day. The itinerary is open, flexible and adaptive. No two trips are ever the same.
Every journey, however, follows my basic recipe for adventure:
1. Orientation: Meeting, introduction, maps, stories, sharing & transport. (~1.5 hrs)
2. Exploration: The action & adventure part. Hike across Portugal's wildest landscapes, tallest cliffs, and most amazing views, valleys, beaches, and more, going slow and taking plenty of breaks to soak it up along the way. (~5 hrs)
3. Final Relaxation: The culmination and reward for our efforts: Settle in for a magically slow sunset and nourishing picnic dinner under starry skies. (~1.5 hrs)
4. Return to Civilization: Part of any full journey... it is inevitable. (~45 min)
We'll begin our journey by gaining an awareness of the land we will discover.
... to the Algarve's Costa Vicentina Natural Park, Western Europe's wildest coastline.
WALK, HIKE & MOVE
... across Portugal's tallest cliffs, most secret beaches, and dramatic viewpoints.
ESCAPE THE CROWDS
We go where no one else goes -- tourist or local -- to find landscapes all our own.
LEARN THE LAND
We'll uncover the land's rich natural & cultural histories up close.
We go at a relaxed pace & take plenty of breaks to relax, play, explore, & soak it up.
GET DEEP INTO THE WILD
We'll leave all signs of civilization to immerse ourselves in the natural world.
WITNESS THE SUNSET
There's nothing like a West Coast sunset from our secluded cliff-top viewpoint.
JOURNEY TO "THE END..."
...of the World, Europe's most mythical corner, in a unique and surprising way.
DINNER UNDER THE STARS
Enjoy a delicious, homemade picnic of locally-inspired tapas & wine.
STAY OUT LATE UNDER STARS
Witness a world-class night sky, and learn the ancient art of celestial navigation.
RETURN HOME INSPIRED
We'll finish feeling refreshed, rewarded, and ready for good night of sleep :)
