Overview

Somewhere out there, just beyond the bars and beach cafés... passed the last paved road... to the very edge of the map... you will find hiding a wild and undiscovered Algarve. Journey there with me & experience the wondrous West Coast & historic End of the World on a hands-on adventure you won't soon forget. No, this is not the Algarve you expected, and this is no sightseeing tour. This is a one-of-a-kind, off-the-map outdoor experience, an adventure for the mind, body, soul & stomach.

This was no doubt the highlight of our trip to the Algarve area of Portugal. TJ definitely is well prepared, knows his stuff, and makes sure you are safe but challenged. Be sure to follow his advice on what to wear and bring with you....More

This was an increadable experience. It was the highlight of our two weeeks in Portugal. TJ loves the west coast and this passion is evident in every phase of the adventure. We started with a hike briefing, a brief ride to the national park and...More

There are definitely heights involved as you are hiking around cliffs that overlook the ocean but you can be kind of conservative with how close to the edge of the cliffs you get. I'm iffy with heights but never felt unsafe... More
