West Algarve Tour with Lagos, Sagres and Cabo de São Vicent

The rugged coast of the western Algarve is crammed with dramatic cliffs sheltering sandy coves and characterful towns. On this trip you'll have ample time to explore the historic city of Lagos and see some of the Algarve's most picturesque points, including Sagres, the ‘end of the world' and Baleeira fishing village. Beatriz, one of our expert local guides, says, 'Lagos has a long history, and was once an important hub for maritime traffic in the 15th century during the Portuguese Age of Discovery. You'll get a sense of its history as you mander through the old town on patterned cobbled streets flanked by handsome buildings.' Sheltering by a river mouth, the town of Lagos has a great location by the beach and within reach of all that amazing scenery. Get your culture fix with a tour of Lagos town, plus free time to enjoy the vibrant streets and cafés. Your guided tour takes in Praça do Infante to see Henry the Navigator's statue as well as the building that served as Portugal's first slave market. Afterwards, you could choose to spend your time having lunch, shopping or exploring.Next, you'll head to Sagres to admire its 15th century fortress, where you can explore the grounds and admire its impressive architecture while learning about the region's maritime history. After this we'll visit Cabo de São Vicente, also known as the ‘end of the world' – Europe's most south-westerly point. You'll round off the day taking in even more panoramic views over the fishing harbour of Baleeira.

Faro, Olhão & Tavira Tour with Fado Show

The east is one of the jewels in the Algarve's crown, and this full day excursion offers a flavour of its local culture as well as a chance to get to know its biggest city. You'll visit Faro, Olhao, and Tavira and travel through beautiful countryside in the Ria Formosa National Park. Sofia, one of our expert local guides, says, ‘This excursion is special because it brings the local culture to life. You'll see a performance of Fado music which is the heart of Portuguese tradition, a soulful singer fronts a group of musicians and together they convey passion, struggle, and longing. It's a hugely significant part of Portuguese culture.'We'll begin in Faro, the regional capital, where you'll have free time to explore the old town – the cathedral is a must-see. Next up is Olhao, a village on the banks of the Ria Formosa. You'll visit its famous fish market and then enjoy free time for lunch and shopping. Sofia adds, ‘As well as showcasing the fruits of the sea, the market is a good place to make contact with smallholders selling their own produce, such as honey, jams, cakes, and liqueurs.'In the afternoon, we'll head to Tavira to see its top sights and visit the castle for a stroll along its ramparts. Along with the castle, the seven-arched Roman bridge and a pair of historic churches are just a handful of the best things to do in Tavira. Cap off the day by dropping into a church for a live show of fado singing – the melancholic music genre that is a national treasure.

Evening 4x4 Tour of Monchique Hills with Dinner
Excursions & day trips

Evening 4x4 Tour of Monchique Hills with Dinner

This trip has to be one of the best ways to discover the real Algarve. Jump into a 4x4, leave the coast behind and make your way up into the Monchique hills. You'll discover a different Algarve with a slower pace of life, one that most visitors never get to see. Ines, one of our expert local guides, says, ‘These hills are relatively untouched by the modern world, and this tour gives visitors a glimpse of traditional Portuguese life. Little farming villages dot the landscape, and you'll get to try local citrus fruit when we visit an orange grove at Silves.'Travelling in small groups winding along earth tracks and past tiny villages, you'll get a glimpse of a peaceful lifestyle that is quickly disappearing. After a stop at an orange grove, you'll explore the timeworn streets of the whitewashed village of Alferce, known for its pretty church which dates back to the 16th century. Any cultivatable patches of land in the area are filled with citrus orchards and eucalyptus groves. Next, you'll continue on your journey to explore the natural wilderness of ‘Barrancos dos Pisoes'.There'll be plenty of stops along the way to capture those perfect holiday pictures and then we'll travel up to the highest point in the Algarve. At this special viewpoint you'll watch the sky change colour as the sun sets and toast the view with a glass of sparkling wine. Hop back into the 4x4 and as darkness blankets the landscape, you'll head to a local restaurant for a traditional dinner including specialities from the Monchique hills.

Introducing Algarve

Portugal’s southernmost region boasts an impressive coastline along the Atlantic Ocean. The Algarve’s charms include its scenic sea cliffs, beautiful beaches and hilly inland dotted with almond and orange groves. There’s so much to see and do in the Algarve, so here are a few of our top tips for your holiday to South Portugal.

Top six things to do in the Algarve

1. Kick back on the coast

From sheltered bays to surf-worthy beaches under sky-high cliffs, you’re spoiled for choice in the Algarve. Many say the most beautiful beach is the Praia de Marinha, a small belt of sand where the water is turquoise one minute, emerald the next – and framed by sea stacks, grottoes and 50-metre-high cliffs. Plus, there’s more to do than just sunbathe along the coast, you can also book a variety of excursions. Hop in a 4x4 or minibus and admire the Costa Vicentina, or the Cape St Vincent, continental Europe’s southernmost point.

2. Flitter around Faro

Algarve’s capital, Faro, is ideal for a daytrip and includes some of the region’s must-see sights. The influence of the Moors, who ruled here in the Middle Ages, is on show in a lot of the city’s architecture. The old town and its ancient city walls, the 500-year-old Faro Cathedral and the film-set-worthy cobbled lanes, are not to be missed.

3. Surfing in Lagos, Sagres and Tavira

The shorelines along Lagos, Sagres and Tavira offer up ideal surfing conditions and are full of surf schools and equipment rental companies. And, if you want to combine a bit of sightseeing with the surfing, the towns of Lagos and Sagres are great spots to visit. In Lagos, you’ll find a historic centre loaded with cobbled streets and churches. In Sagres, meanwhile, don’t forget to explore the clifftop fortress and the fishing port.

4. Visit Andalusia

Thanks to its location, you can easily visit neighbouring Spain from the Algarve and explore Andalusia. Seville is only two hours’ drive away and is packed with world-famous attractions. Some of the must-sees include the Plaza de España and the cathedral with its Giralda Tower, while the village-like former Jewish quarter, Santa Cruz, is also well worth a wander. And, if you pop across the border to Huelva, you’ll find traditional tapas bars and classical churches ready and waiting.

5. Taste the local cuisine

If you’re a foodie, take a culinary tour of the Algarve and spoil your taste buds with Portuguese flavours. Start your day with sweet pastéis de nata pastries and a Portuguese coffee – the roasts here are in a league of their own. For lunch, head to one of the authentic fishermen’s bars to try the catch of the day. And, for something a little different, head to the oyster beds in Alvor, where you can see how they are harvested before sampling them straight from the sea.

6. Head into the Monchique Mountains

One of the best inland excursions in the Algarve is to the Monchique Mountains. It’s dotted with picturesque villages that range from the rustic to the sophisticated. A must-visit is Silves, which is the gateway to the highlands. It’s famed as much for its oranges as its hilltop Moorish fortress – it used to be the regional capital. The town of Monchique itself, all cobbled alleys and whitewashed churches, is also worth a visit, as is the laidback spa town of Caldas de Monchique. And, for panoramic views of the Algarve countryside, head to the summit of Mount Foia.
