Overview

Somewhere out there, just beyond the bars and beach cafés... passed the last paved road... to the very edge of the map... you will find hiding a wild and undiscovered Algarve. Journey there with me & experience the wondrous West Coast & historic End of the World on a hands-on adventure you won't soon forget. No, this is not the Algarve you expected, and this is no sightseeing tour. This is a one-of-a-kind, off-the-map outdoor experience, an adventure for the mind, body, soul & stomach.
