Highlights & Itinerary
Make new friends, explore the Algarve interior off the beaten track and enjoy a tasty local Mittagessen on our Algarve Jeep Safari 4WD Tour.
Most of the Jeep Safari 4WD Tour will take place inland at half an hour driving from the coast.
You follow off road tracks, cross a little stream and visit old hillside villages where time has stood still.
Local stops on the 4WD Tour
Frequently you stop at a little farm to experience handcrafted Portuguese products. At one farm you see how a local liquor is made out of berries. You can taste his “medronho” firewater as well. After that your next stop on the 4WD tour is a farm where honey is collected and produced, and where you can taste the locally grown honey, bee pollen and jam.
Later on we search for an iconic view point, as high as possible, with magnificent views over green valleys and all the way to the south coast.
In summer you stop at a nearby fresh water lake for a refreshing dive.
Iconic Land Rover
Your vehicle for the day is a Land Rover. We´re proud to say that we love driving you around in an iconic Land Rover Defender 110. However this is not the recently launched new shiny Defender with all the gadgets and electronics.
Instead you step aboard of an old school and rugged Defender 110. The one that has brought millions of explorers overland to Africa, Asia and beyond. (For those who know; indeed Land Rover is not a Jeep)
Safety on the Jeep Safari
You are picked up by a Land Rover that has safety belts for all passengers, roll bars and good All Terrain off-road tyres. Moreover, the car inspection in Portugal is so rigorous, that you can be assured your 4WD vehicle is in a good and safe condition. It has an open roof for fresh air, but we´ll close it if needed.
The Defender 110 has 8 passenger seats, however with the current covid measures in place, we use only 5 seats, unless you are travelling in one bubble of 8. Above all we want to ensure everyone to have a bit more space to feel completely comfortable.
At around midday your Land Rover will be parked at a local restaurant which is known for its tasty chicken piri-piri with home grown salad. Drinks (soda/wine/water) are on the house during this Jeep Safari.
A vegetarian or vegan option is available at no extra cost if pre-booked.
Cork tree forest
One stop that can’t be missed during the Jeep Safari is the Kork tree forest. Portuguese cork comes in a excellent quality. As a result it is used to cap the best quality champagne bottles, and it was used on one of the first space shuttles back in the 70’s. And what about the numbers painted on the trees ?
Your Jeep Safari Guide
To call your driver “a guide” is underestimated. He/she (yes, we also do have female drivers) is much more than that. For example your guide is first of all a trained and responsable driver. In addition all drivers are used to drive with people on board, and in off-road conditions. In other words your comfort and safety is nº 1 here.
We all love to laugh, right? Your driver loves to crack a joke, because he/she loves to see you with a smile on your face at the end of the day.
Feel free to ask as many questions as you want during the tour.
Knowledgable & fun
Not only your driver is proud of Portugal, above all he/she is also a deep source of all the secrets that the Algarve has. All drivers are selected for the love to share this special knowledge with their passengers. Therefore, the driver shares with you his/her secrets, little wisdoms and funny details, from every aspect in Algarve life.
Whether you have an interest for the Algarve indigenous or imported trees, storks of bee-eaters, the Jurassic coastline or the once (long time ago) volcanic mountains of the interior, you will not be disappointed about the knowledge of your driver.
