What to expect

The Algarve is famed for its beautiful beaches, yet its countryside is also filled with little gems. On this exclusive tour, you'll head into the Monchique Mountains to visit the history-steeped towns of Silves and Monchique as well as Mt Foia. Plus, you'll taste some local treats along the way.

First up is Silves, in the heart of the orange-growing country at the foot of the highlands. You'll climb up its castle to admire the views, learn about its Moorish past and enjoy a cake and orange juice in its café. We'll then continue the excursion deep into the Monchique Mountains, where we'll stop in a restaurant for lunch.

Next is Mt Foia, the Algarve's highest point. Here, you can enjoy panoramic views over the countryside. You'll also drop into a shop for a liqueur tasting. Then, it's on to Monchique to explore its cobbled streets and traditional shops. Rounding off the day is Caldas de Monchique for a guided walk through a garden rich in the area's endemic trees as well as a mineral water tasting.
