Begin your excursion with pickup from your Albufeira hotel by open-top jeep, then drive out into the rural Algarve to experience the hidden highlights of the countryside.
During your half day adventure, visit historic villages and gain insight into pastoral life. Take in unique views of the region’s more remote locations, and, if the weather permits, stop by a waterfall for a swim in its refreshing waters.
Explore a Moorish castle, stroll through orange orchards and discover a traditional firewater distillery, where you can sample Medronho and other liquors (own expense).
Listen to insights provided by your professional guide as you explore the region’s rich culture, and at the end of your journey, relax as you’re driven back to your hotel.
