If you're after some different photo opportunities of the Algarve, then look no further than this half-day 4x4 excursion. You'll travel off road and along country tracks to see hamlets set in the Monchique hills – an area famed for medronho, honey and cork – with tastings included.
This 4x4 tour takes you through the rolling hills and green valleys of Monchique hills to explore hidden corners of western Algarve. First you'll see where storks lay their nests in Rasmalho before hopping in and setting off past Casas Velhas to Arqueta, a small hamlet. The journey features almond, carob and olive trees, and once there you'll see how cork is made.
A viewpoint over the hills is next, then Sítio do Peso is on the agenda, where honey and medronho – ‘fire water' - are both made. You'll travel past orange groves and Monchique town to our final stop at Sítio da Laranjeira, where some typical bread, olive oil and produce are laid out for you to taste.
