Have you ever been to Algarve?

The Algarve region is a fantastic travel destination in southern Portugal. There you can find incredible beaches, great weather, hidden natural gems and amazing food.

Few places in Europe can compare with the beauty of this region, which, in the south of Portugal, has all the Latin heat for a very hot summer.

The Algarve way of life

Portugal is a small country, but with a vast culture and many different things to see. The Algarve is very different from Lisbon, the capital of the country. It’s like the time stops and all you want to do is have a good time!

The sunny Algarve coast attracts travelers from all over the world, for its weather, prices, safety and culture. Here you will have the best and most fresh fish of your life, in a mix of rural areas and luxurious restaurants.

The best cities to visit

The entire Algarve is a friendly place, and the locals are always very welcoming and helpful. Most of the cities in Algarve used to be small fishing villages that nowadays are major luxury destinations. Our favorite places to go in the Algarve are:

- Albufeira: centrally located, with most main attractions nearby and the best parties
- Lagos: A naturally beautiful city, with a hippy vibe and charming old town
- Tavira: A small town in east Algarve, with the warmest waters of the Atlantic ocean
- Portimão: A big city close enough to fantastic natural sights

"A conexão do pessoal do grupo de passeio foi muito importante para desfrutar do encantamento que o passeio às grutas proporciona! Muita diversão e sensação de liberdade com responsabilidade! Ponto positivo foi o guia (não lembro o nome), que apesar de muito jovem se comunica perfeitamente em inglês!"
★★★★★
"Wir haben uns bei den Guides super aufgehoben gefühlt. Da es bei unserer Tour sehr windig war, war der Wellengang doch relativ stark, was bei Höhlen-Kayaking mit lauter Neulingen nicht ganz ungefährlich sein kann. Unsere Guides haben mit ihrer Erfahrung aber alles richtig eingeschätzt, uns mit humorvoller Art immer gute und klare Anweisungen gegeben und immer auf alle ein Auge gehabt. Es war super lustig und ein tolles Erlebnis, vor allem die Benagil Höhle war der Wahnsinn! Auch die naturbezogenen Infos die sie uns in der Höhle erklärt haben fand ich toll. Ein super Erlebnis, wirklich nette und fähige Guides, immer wieder gerne! 😊"
