    We meet in a small residential parking lot, 15min walk from downtown Lagos, 30min from Dona Ana beach. Wait by the palm trees in the grass. This is a prefect meeting point: It's quiet, spacious, shaded, easy to find by car or foot, and has free parking. Please aim to arrive early, just in case :)

    • Travellers should have a moderate physical fitness level
    • THIS TRIP IS DESIGNED TO BE INCLUSIVE & ACCESSIBLE to most all healthy, active people. However, this is a physical experience that requires a basic level of good fitness.
    • THE DAY IS BIG, BUT *NOT* EXHAUSTING: We spend about 4-5 hrs hiking, but always at a relaxed pace, taking breaks & adapting to diverse abilities.
    • THE CHALLENGE comes from the terrain, which can be rocky, loose, steep & slippery. As well, we will be near to some high cliffs & edges, which require care and attention to move around..
    • NO SPECIAL SKILLS ARE REQUIRED. You only need a basic, normal level of good balance, coordination & full-body mobility.
    • THE #1 REQUIREMENT is that you have a positive attitude, the desire to put in some hard work, & the ability to overcome challenges with a smile ;)
    • GUESTS 60+ should feel extra confident that you are healthy, fit, & have good mobility. The more "advanced" your age, the more confident you should feel that you are capable of... (1) a few hours of sustained, low-level aerobic activity (like a long walk or bike ride); (2) shorter periods of more vigorous exertion (like hiking a big, steep hill, or playing a good game of tennis); (3) the balance and full-body mobility to move across areas of loose, uneven, or slippery terrain that might require using hands and whole bodies; (4) the spirit for adventure and the ability to take on some (potential) challenges with a smile :)

      Spectacular
      We had a tremendous experience with TJ. Our large group of 8 agreed this was the highlight of our trip to Portugal. The itinerary was a perfect mix of hiking, swimming, learning, and snacking. The views are second to none, and it’s a truly special undiscovered corner of the world, which TJ has seemingly made his backyard.

      Absolutely my favorite experience in Portugal.
      We spent an entire week with TJ as part of a yoga and hiking retreat that my wife and I hosted. Absolutely incredible! His knowledge of the many trails, beaches snd mountains of this gorgeous part of Portugal is probably unrivaled. Add to that his vast knowledge of the history, geology, flora and fauna, and the experience becomes multi layered and magnificent. Not only would I highly recommend The West Coast Adventure owned by TJ, but we have already decided to bring back another full week group in the near future. Even if you have only one day to hike in the Algarve, do not miss the opportunity to do it with TJ!!

      The Wild West with TJ for the Win!
      TJ is an exceptional hiking guide! He toured our group of 17 for a week, all over the western and southern coastal region of the Algarve , introducing us to the wild coastline and diverse landscape of the area. I highly recommend his service to anyone who loves hiking and adventure.

      Amazing! Would recommend to everyone!!
      This was such a beautiful hike and memorable experience! TJ is extremely knowledgeable about the history, landscape, plants, and animals of this area and has crafted a perfect hike that takes you through the valleys, beaches, and cliffs of the west coast. You won’t regret signing up for this hike! Thanks TJ!

      The best day we spent in Portugal!
      This tour was an incredible day. TJ put together such a fun, thoughtful and adventurous day for our family. We have 3 kids (17,14,10) he made sure the hikes were challenging but also very rewarding. We started at the top of the cliffs on the west coast with some of the most beautiful views I’ve ever seen. Then we hiked down close to the water where we could see the waves crashing in. The day ended right at sunset where he setup a little picnic for us on top of the cliffs. It was honestly pretty magical. He was great with our kids too! This was all of our favorite day we spent in Portugal. If your looking for something unique, this is the tour to book. Thank you again TJ!

      A MUST DO if you love the outdoors and a good adventure
      Hiked with TJ in Sept 2022. This is the best small group tour I have ever experienced. TJ has really curated an amazing hiking experience for those who love to be outside! When we reached the West Coast shoreline, it was undoubtedly one of those “is this real life?” moments. Best day of my 8 day trip to portugal. Hope to return to do another tour with TJ some day. Final note, the food he provided for us was divine.

      Exceptional Experience
      TJ’s planning and personal approach made the experience exceptional. He is a skilled leader who gave the group enough direction and support when needed and space when appropriate. The experience was something we would never have done alone which made it a high value experience. The small group dinner, on the edge of the cliff, after dark completed a perfect day. No hesitation recommending for all able body ages.

      I have travelled a lot to be honest And this was seriously one of my best adventure experience ever! I was quite nervous before since it was my first hike alone plus I am afraid of hights plus I am not the most fit person… It was just wow, seriously wow! The view was breathtaking, the guide was simply amazing, organized, resourceful and caring for are needs. Then when you made it to the end of your journey you get to enjoy amazing wine and home made finger licking tapas! Seriously enough said! How can I say this politely? What are you waiting for, book already you won’t regret it!!! Sincerely N. From Montreal Canada

      Unforgettable Experience
      Cannot recommend this tour enough. TJ was an amazing and patient tour guide, full of great stories and knowledge surrounding the area. You get to see some unreal sites and explore beaches that are worth the price of admission alone. And to finish it all off, TJ provided us with a delicious home-cooked meal. You'd be crazy not to give this tour a try.

      Wonderful adventure to explore West Coast
      Can't recommend enough TJ and his adventure! The day I did the hike the weather wasn't the best, but TJ adapted our route to make sure we have the best time and see beautiful spots, so it did feel like an actual adventure 🙂 He is so knowledgeable about the area and I really liked with how much respect he treats it and takes care of it. I learned a lot about the nature of the West Coast, saw spots which I wouldn't have seen myself, even experienced hikers would discover something new for themselves. TJ also makes sure everyone has a great time, and the vibe in the group was great. Last but not least to mention, the tapas dinner we had on the beach was delicious!

      Worth the energy and time!
      One of the most memorable experiences of my life was touring the Algarve West coast with T.J. and some other amazing people! T.J., our tour guide, was engaging, informative, and fun! He challenged us to take in the beauty with all of our senses. T.J.'s style was relaxed but he kept us moving so that we received an experience that surpassed expectations! Truly, it was an incredible day with breathtaking vistas, full of energy, and opportunities for contemplation. Lasting until well past sunset, we ate a delicious dinner under the stars. Perfect day!

      Hands down best thing we did in Portugal
      Wow... we had been recommended by a friend to do the Algarve tour, and it surpassed even our high expectations. It was hands down the best thing we did in Portugal, and something we will always remember! T.J. does a great job of bringing the group together, appreciating nature, and pushing you to explore. If you want something unique and off the beaten trail, this is the way to do it!

      One with nature
      I dare to say that the tour with the @westcoastlagos was a life changing experience. Walking through the intact parts of nature, I truly became part of it. There was no need for endless triggering of buttons on the device by which we create memories. As I stood on the edge of the cliff, I felt the breeze on the fingers of my hands, I breathed the freshness of the ocean through the two openings on my nose, I felt free. I felt like a humble believer in the most beautiful cathedral that only can be created by the nature. I will have enternal memory in my mind and heart, I just need to close my eyes and imagine and again... I am standing small, full of respect in front of the vast expanse of water that blends into the horizon with the sky ruled by a powerful wind. I've never felt like that before. I am happy and grateful that I can be part of this beautiful world. Thank you T.J.

      Highlight of Portugal
      I'll start by saying this review is about 5 months late but maybe that will make it more meaningful. Five friends and I were in Lagos and decided that we would give this tour a try, having no idea what to expect. This was probably the best decision of the trip. We have not stopped talking and laughing about our experiences on this tour, from the moment it ended until now and i'm sure it will continue into the future. I can't say enough about TJ, he really made the day perfect for us. He felt out our group, knew we had different comfort levels and tailored the tour to make it enjoyable for all of us. He was able to put up with inside jokes and have fun with us but also able to find perfect moments for thought provoking conversation. I highly recommend this tour to anyone, I know that they adapt the tour to your needs and provide you with a unique experience that you wont forget. Thank you TJ for the amazing time!

    Three years ago, my wife and I went on this tour and loved it so much that we had to repeat it! The experience TJ offers is really one of a kind: it’s not hard to see beautiful landscape in Algarve, but he makes everything much more special with his inspiring comments and remarks, fostering connection with the group and nature, and tailoring the trip as you go.
    This time, we got to swim in a beautiful cave that had waves coming from three directions, jump off a cliff into the ocean (only for the braver ones), observe tiny anemonae in their natural habitat, lie on a rock to warm our bodies, and have delicious (vegan for us) dinner between the stars and a 125 meter high cliff. Not to mention the connection with kind, free spirited people. It was a magical day and I hope to do it all over again in 3 years :)

    Our family travels a lot and decided to go to Portugal. My husband after some research booked a private hike with TJ. The hike was the most amazing excursion we have had. It is by far our favorite thing on our trip to Portugal. TJ was attentive, knowledgeable, patient, friendly and always made sure we were comfortable. Our family is not outdoors people so TJ customized the hike for us. He took our family climbing on rocks, walking on the beach, traveling through little towns. Our favorite part was seeing the sunset and the picnic under the moonlight that TJ arranged. He made memories for our family.

    Unbelievable experience with TJ! From start to finish TJ guided us through an amazing hike up the mountain to unreal views to the hiking down the mountain to an amazing beach with a perfect sunset. It was the perfect afternoon to top it off with an amazing dinner under the stars. An overall perfect day! It is a must when in Portugal! TJ is the best!!!

    This adventure with TJ was incredible. He came exceptionally well-prepared with equipment, knowledge, and emotional intelligence to make it special and personalized, while still providing his cool expertise along the way. The hike wasn’t too challenging, and he had great tidbits of history, geography, and nature knowledge to share with us throughout. The dinner at the end was intimate and absolutely lovely. Most importantly for us, we had a member of our group who struggled with heights, and TJ coached them through the parts that were particularly difficult, using compassion and understanding to get them to overcome their fear! It was incredibly inspiring to witness, and TJ deserves a huge amount of credit for the feat.

    If you want to see and learn things you probably didn't know about the western algarve, its flora and fauna, it's history, its secrets and its place in the world, this is the trip for you.

    Hiking up, down and across ancient coastal pathways (and some definitely not pathways!), you will learn how nature and people flourish in this unique environment, how the area was populated by people and how and why it continues to fascinate.

    Watch the sun go down at "The End of The World" before a supper of homemade local produce as you learn about the stars in a glorious panorama of unpolluted night sky.

    You won't regret it. A different and fulfilling day.

    This was the most amazing experience ever!!! Absolutely blew us and our expectations away. TJ was so incredible and knowledgeable and gave us what was truly the best days of our lives. We learned so much, saw so many hidden places and couldn’t have imagined our trip without this experience!! If you are thinking about it, DO IT. TJ knows how to curate the perfect day based on skill level and what the group is interested in seeing. The best part was the beautiful views and the dinner at the end was so beyond delicious and the cherry on top to a perfect day. Thank you so much TJ, would definitely recommend to anyone looking to get outside, explore and really connect with the beautiful western algarve coast of Portugal!

    This hike was the best thing I’ve ever done. TJ helped me push myself to limits I didn’t think I think I had in me. I was easily the least experienced on the hike but was never made to feel that way. TJ would pause the group to show them something, while I knew he was really waiting for me to catch up without making me feel bad. His peaceful and kind nature is out of this world. I saw the most beautiful sights, felt the highest of highs and had the most delicious dinner under the stars. It felt like a movie. Father TJ, there’s no one like you! Thank you for showing me what I’m capable of!

    We started off with a 30 min ride in a cozy van from Lagos to the West Coast of the Algarve. After parking the van we headed off to our first big hike which led us to hidden beaches and gave us some amazing views! Be aware to get sweaty and go offroad. Don‘t worry, Instagrammers, you will make enough stops giving you time to take a breath and shots of your hopefully refillable waterbottles.
    Back at the Van we went for a quick ride and then went on by foot to a very special place, which would be our base for the following hours.
    We spent the rest of the evening watching the sun set, the stars rise and enjoying a delicious TJ-made meal hardly 6 feet away from the cliff.
    All in all, it was a perfect day.

    Book it and let the west coast (and T.J. of course ;)) amaze you!

    Book your experience today!

    I can say with great confidence that this will be the highlight of your trip. T.J our guide took great care in giving us the best possible experience. From the moment we met and started our adventure we new it was going to be spectacular. T.J took us on two hikes through the most beautiful points of the west coast. Experiencing the fisherman trails with not another human in sight. The views were to die for, and his knowledge of this land made it such a whole experience. The feeling of being on the highest cliffs in the Algarve, and watching the waves crash upon the cliffs carving the most beautiful bends along the coast line. T.J shared stories of the fishermen, educated us on the vegetation, and lovely little secrets I’ll let him tell you all about. To top it all off we got to experience a sunset at the end of the world with a beautiful hand made Portuguese tapas style picnic dinner. The end of the night when the sun dipped below the horizon we got to star gaze as T.J pointed out some of the constellations. If we ever come back to Lagos we would definitely do this trip again, not only for the views but also to hang out with T.J. It would not be the same without him.
    Thank you T.J for being so warm and passionate about this wonderful place. And for answering all my questions ;). Until next time.

    This was truly a memorable experience and ranks of one of the best days of our time here in Portugal. We rarely book guides on vacations, but there was something about this opportunity that drew us to this trip. It is highly recommended and worth every penny. The hiking is great. The views are spectacular!

    TJ the tour guide is friendly, knowledgable and has perfected the pace of the trip. He takes the time to explain what you are seeing and doing. This adds to the overall experience. The hiking is fairly straightforward but there are parts that are a little challenging.

    The group we were with were also a lot of fun and towards the end of the trip, a member proposed to his girlfriend right in front of the ocean. Truly special!

    Absolutely bring a jacket! I could not believe the micro climate that is the west coast of Portugal. It was hot in Lagos when we met and then a few hours later, we found ourselves in quite a cool climate wondering how is this possible. Trust me, it’s possible!

    So 100% a great time and definitely worth it.
