Why visit the Algarve with Explore?
There's no better way to explore the Algarve than to walk or cycle it. For a relaxed walking trip in this sunny area we offer two walking trips, each a week-long in a different section of the Algarve, that can even be combined if you want to escape for two weeks and fully explore the region. On these trips you can expect leisurely walks, mostly along the coastline with views over the rugged cliffs and sandy beaches. And at the end of a walk there's the chance to enjoy some delicious fresh seafood and Portuguese wine.
Or if you prefer you can take to two wheels on our Cycle Portugal - Lisbon to Algarve trip. This small group tour explores both the Algarve as well as the Lisbon and Sintra area of Portugal. It includes rides along the coast and through picturesque natural parks including Costa Vicentina, Europe's largest coastal natural park.
No matter which you choose, walking or cycling, you'll be joined by like-minded travellers on your trip. Our average group size is just 12, meaning you'll have great company but not too many other people to disrupt your experience. You'll also be led by a local tour leader with expert knowledge of the Algarve, its history, culture and cuisine.
