Full Day Tour – 7 hours
The Mountain Tour is a jeep tour through the Serra de Monchique, which takes you to places you would never otherwise have the chance to see. From start to finish, this off-road tour shows you the best hidden treasures of the Algarve.
We drive along the margins of the Bravura Dam to discover the region’s fauna and flora and continue on secondary roads towards the rural Algarve. Already at the highest point of the Monchique mountain range, at Fóia, you will have a 360 degree panoramic view of some of the towns in the region.
The jeep tour through the unknown Algarve would never be complete without a visit to a honey and medronho producer. Learn about the stages of each product and at the end, taste the distilled drink made from these fruits that grow on the slopes of Serra de Monchique. Next, we will make a brief stop in the peaceful village of Monchique and then head for Alferce, where we will be served lunch at a typical restaurant. We start our descent to Lagos, but not before enjoying the landscape of Picota and getting to know the process of cork harvesting.
