Day 1: The Arrival We welcome you in Lisbon airport where you’ll be given all your program information and equipment. The destination is the Algarve and the location is the charming small hotel “Vila Monte”, in the Moncarapacho village. You’ll be able to enjoy the hotel’s 4 different environments, to get a massage on the Keshba Spa or even have a few golf hits. Enjoy the quietness of the surroundings. Day 2: Monte figo Mountain and Cerro da Cabeça  After the breakfast we’ll head out to the Monte Figo Mountain. The destination is “Cerro da Cabeça”, a spectacular alignment of hills, parallel to the 250m coast which, on clearer days, allow you to have the most incredible views. Also impressive is the field of “Megalapias”, the most exquisite of the region and a true geo-monument. On the way back we’ll go through the Moncarapacho village where you’ll be able to enjoy the typical Algarve almond dainties (13 Km) Day 3: Typical Algarve landscape  Today’s tour goes through a typical algarvian landscape, the charming orange orchards. Tasting the sweet orange of the Algarve is mandatory. We will go through several tracks and rural paths and also make a small stop on the typical village of Estiramatens, where you’ll be able to enjoy a glass of Algarvian orange juice. Today’s location is the lovely country house “Herdade da Corte” in Santa Catarina de Tavira,(16km). Day 4: The Most Incredible Waterfalls of Algarve After a breakfast with the most typical Algarvian products, we head towards “Pego do Inferno”, one of the most incredible waterfalls in the Algarve, and one that we can almost say belongs to the “Herdade da Corte” since it’s located just 5km away. The landscapes filled with carobs and pomegranetes confer a distinguished glamour to this track (11.5 Km). Day 5: Ria Formosa Natural Park The starting point will be in Cacelha Velha, a distinguished Algarvian village, known for being part of Ria Formosa Natural Park. Ria Formosa is one of the most important wet areas of the country and its main habitats are dunes, salt marshes and intertidal environments that make this Natural Park one of the best places in the country for Birdwatching (here you can find various types of aquatic birds such as flamingos). After that we’ll reach Altura where the warming Praia Verde Boutique Hotel awaits your arrival (14 km). Day 6 : Vila Real de Santo Antonio After breakfast we’ll head towards Vila Real de Santo António, a peaceful Algarvian village, once called “Sítio das Hortas”, because it had more small gardens than houses. The city centre streets are of geometric organization, a Marquês de Pombal classic style, who is the figure of main square obelisk. We head back through enchanting pine tree forests and coast until we reach Praia Verde (16km).  Day 7: Last Day
