The West Algarve has spectacular cliffs and maritime scenery, and its varied geology produced a rich range of landscapes, from volcanic hills to dramatic limestone escarpments. This diversity is complemented by the local flora and fauna that flourishes in its mild sunny winters and long hot summers.
The programmed walks are designed to offer a good mix of coastal and inland scenery, so that you too can discover the huge welcoming heart of the Algarve.
This tour will be based in Lagos, a city that, from early on, was a gateway to the Mediterranean. It was from its wide bay, encircled by the fine sands of Meia Praia that Gil Eanes set off, the first to round Cape Bojador; it was here that privateers like Sir Francis Drake hid, and galleons full of gold and precious stones from the Americas or spices from the India put into port.
The stretch of wall bordering the marginal is beautiful and in the old town you can find shops, restaurants, tons of history and culture.
