About this tour

Enjoy an off-road day trip in the Algarve to Serra de Monchique. Swim in the Bravura Dam, climb to a viewpoint over rocky terrain in a 4×4 and explore a ghost town.

This tour is perfect for those who want to escape the tourist masses and explore areas surrounded by nature, practically untouched by man. 80% of the route is off-road, in the middle of the São Vicente Natural Park, the best preserved stretch of coastline in Europe.

Due to our adventurous nature and love for extreme sports, on this tour we will explore the 4×4 to its limits and see how it performs on the wildest off-road tracks. What could be better than exploring all this with the locals, who know the region like the back of their hand? To start we will pay a visit to the picturesque Bravura lake, bring shorts or a bikini.

If the weather is inviting…let’s go swimming If the weather is not good…let’s take a short walk near this beautiful lake and touch the surrounding nature After the lake, it’s time to wake up…let’s play an adventure off- rod driving to the highest point.

To understand the true beauty of this area, we will visit the best viewpoint in Algarve Portugal, with 960m high cliffs and stunning views over the Atlantic Ocean. To fully relax and work up an appetite, we will visit a ghost village, no one lives in this place, it is abandoned as if time had stopped 100 years ago.
