Full description

Taste the freshest oranges possible on this private day trip to Algarve orange country. Visit the Silves farmers market and have a walk by the Arade river, learn about orange farming at an orange orchard, taste an orange plucked straight from a tree, and enjoy a glass of just-squeezed orange juice.

The tour starts in the town of Silves, the heart of Algarve’s orange country. Visit the farmers market and wander by the Arade river – its pretty views of the Roman bridge and the red-hued town are not to be missed. 

Next, you’ll enjoy a guided tour of one of the largest orange orchards in the region, where you can learn about the farming process. The Algarve region produces what are considered to be the best oranges in the world, and the Silves area, in particular, is known for its sweet, fine-skinned, aromatic, and incredibly juicy oranges. 

Your guide will instruct you on a variety of species, grown so that oranges can be enjoyed all year round. You’ll even get to pluck an orange straight from a tree and enjoy its delicious taste, farm-fresh.

The tour ends with a serving of a delicious, naturally sweet, vitamin-packed glass of just-squeezed orange juice.

    The market was almost empty and too long the drive for the time in the orchards.
