Full description
This is a day of discovery and history where you will visit some of the most interesting and scenic areas of the Algarve. Our route follows lesser travelled paths, giving you a discerning view of Portugal’s past and present. We travel to the town of Silves. Here there is time to visit the impressive cathedral and to wander the narrow streets and alleys (entrance fees not included). From here we continue our ascent into the Monchique Mountain. We will visit the charming little spa village of Caldas de Monchique, with springs of proven medicinal properties. Following the winding road, we reach the highest point in the Algarve – Fóia – standing at 902m above sea-level. The views here are dramatic and the air incredibly pure. Downhill then from Fóia, crossing the countryside and stopping in the small village of Marmelete where you have time to enjoy lunch in one of the local restaurants (included). After lunch we go straight to Costa Vicentina, to visit some magnificent beaches where you can have some time to walk around, take some excellent pictures, relax and enjoy the view. 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 in Europe due to its strategic position. Passage through Sagres, a typical fishing village and its sheltered fishing port.

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!
