Feel the Beauty of Nature. Get to know Portugal in a complete different way by exploring this charming country by foot. Visit amazing historical villages and enjoy the beautiful nature with our Algarve walking tours.
Outdoor-Tours.com has been hiking in the Algarve since 1996. We hiked and explored the most interesting and beautiful nature areas in the Algarve and created several great routes for you. Discover a landscape where you will have the feeling that time truly stood still. Visit ancient villages where you will see people still following a traditional way of life, distant from the large scale tourist developments on the coast.
“Nice experience I was leading a group of 10 people between the age of 20 and 34. We did the Serra de Monchique walking tour and had a great time. Frank is a very patient and pleasant guide, keeps all participants’ speed and ease in mind and is very knowledgeable. We learned a great deal about the environment and its nature, history and people. A short visit to a local medronho maker was a nice addition. I can only recommend this trip and Outdoors-Tours fullheartedly, it was a nice experience!”

“Great team – fabulous walks We are a walking club from Fuengirola in Spain and 50 of us had arranged three days of walks with Frank and his team, Thomas & Serge. The age range of the group was from 55 to 82 but Frank organised each day to suit the groups who prefer harder walks and those who would like something a bit gentler. The guides were friendly, informative, funny and helpful and really made our holiday a great success. Whether you are a large or small group, we would highly recommend them to show you the wonderful sights of Portugal.”
