The Algarve Region


Algarve Tours and Trips

The Algarve is the beautiful southern coastline of Portugal with breathtaking cliffs, golden beaches and the best climate in Europe.

The Algarve has a rich history, including a five-century long occupation by the Arabs, which is visible in the architecture of the region, such as the roofs with typical chimneys and tiles, as well as having many places’ names start with ‘Al’. The Algarve was part of the Roman province of Lusitania, becoming part of the jurisdiction of the Visigoths. Sea and nature are part of Algarvean people’s lives and you can observe the inhabitants wading into the ocean at low tide to find seafood along the coast and fishermen going out with fishing boats to catch squid, octopus, sardines, and tuna.

The Algarve has mild winters and long hot summers, with the height of the tourism from July through August. This is when the beaches are full, and hotels are sold out. However, spring and autumn are very pleasant seasons here, with the perfect weather to do a hiking or cycling tour, and discover cliffs with endless Atlantic views and enjoy the delicious Mediterranean gastronomy. It is a region blessed with stunning beaches, picturesque fishing towns and a glorious climate, all of which combine to create the perfect holiday destination. The Algarve is wonderfully varied, able to appeal to a wide range of hikers. Visit Ponta da Piedade and discover fantastic landscapes of cliffs and rocks or Cape São Vicente in Sagres, the south-westernmost point of Continental Europe.
