Full description

Enjoy this day of discovery and history where you will visit some of the most interesting and scenic areas of the Algarve. Follows lesser traveled paths, giving you a discerning view of Portugal’s past and present. Meet your driver and travel to the town of Silves. Wander the narrow streets and alleys of the town and visit the impressive cathedral which you can pay to enter if you would like. From here, continue your ascent into Monchique Mountain. Stop in the charming spa village of Caldas de Monchique, with springs of proven medicinal properties. Following the winding road, reach the highest point in the Algarve, Fóia, standing at 902m above sea level. The views here are dramatic and the air is incredibly pure. Downhill then from Fóia, cross the countryside and take a break in the small village of Marmelete where you have time to enjoy lunch in one of the local restaurants. After lunch, go straight to Costa Vicentina, to admire the magnificent beaches where you can have some time to walk around, relax, and capture pictures of the views. Then it’s on to the ‘end of the world’, Cape St. Vincent, the southwestern point of Europe, where you can feel the wilderness of the place. The lighthouse that rises in this place defies the elements and is one of the most important lighthouses in Europe due to its strategic position. Lastly, pass through Sagres, a typical fishing village, and see its sheltered fishing port. At the end of the tour, the driver will drop you back at your hotel.

Ein super tolles Erlebnis und definitiv ein Muss wenn man an der Algarve Urlaub macht! Das Hinterland, abseits der touristischen Orte war wunderschön, aber auch die Westküste war ein Besuch wert. Das Mittagessen war sehr lecker und Vasco, unser Tourguide, war super freundlich, gut drauf und konnte uns einiges über die Algarve erzählen. Diese Tour würden wir zu 100% weiterempfehlen!

Sehr humorvoller Guide, welcher uns unterhaltsam die Kultur, das Land und die Geschichte Portugiesens näher brachte. Es gab für die Bergregion typische Fleischgerichte, unter anderem Wildschwein und saisonales Gemüse. Die Tour ist definitiv zum empfehlen! Danke für die tolle Organisation!
