A great way to see the natural countryside of the Algarve! The tour starts in the unchanged and traditional Algarvian town of Monchique. From there you will be guided through the beautiful mountain side of Monchique to either ‘Fóia’ or ‘Picota’.
Following the ancient walkways of the local Sheppard you will experience the true natural Algarve in all its beauty. Our experienced guides will explain about the different plant and animal life, as well as local traditions and ancient agricultural techniques as you wind up and down the highest mountain in the south of Portugal.
You will be told why this region is so important to the Iberian Peninsula and how the diverse plant and animal life benefit from the unique weather system that comes together at this point from North Africa, the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.
