Set in the heart of Portugal's Algarve region, this exceptional walking tour through the remote inland parts of the Algarve enables you to experience the authentic, rustic way of life and lush culture of this region with its long-held craft skills and exquisite traditional cuisine, cooked for you by locals. As you travel deep into this unspoilt area you will wind your way through towering cork oak forests and strawberry trees and past rural villages, where kitchen gardens abound. Discover the awesome scenery of twisting streams, narrow ravines and a landscape embellished with dense Cistus rockrose. Take in the breath-taking views and enjoy the relaxing way of life whilst loving the sun on your back.

Meeting with the local artisans you will learn how to make rope in the traditional way, why basket making is such a skill and how they produce the local specialty of firewater. Staying with the villagers in their homes and guest houses and eating their local dishes, you will be immersed in this authentic, unhurried way of life. What a way to unwind!
