Tavira Walking Tours organises walks in the eastern Algarve to introduce people to the traditional inland part of the region and the lifestyle of the local population. Whether in a friendly confectionery, bread or cake workshop, which enables participants to get hands-on experience, feel the pleasant warmth of the wood oven in the winter or smell freshly squeezed oranges in the summer, or on Nordic Walking tours, at an easy level covering a short distance for beginners, or on long walks through the uplands of the serra at an advanced level of difficulty for more experienced walkers, our activities will always be memorable.
The trails are selected by the guides in order to guarantee a wide variety of surfaces and landscapes in a single walk, and thereby surprise walkers at every hill they cross. This is what happens on the walks along thematic routes and in the experiences sharing the cultural and natural heritage, which include subjects such as fruit trees or dryland trees, and the use of plants. Or on visits to see traditional activities such as the tile makers of Santa Catarina, or olive oil presses and distilleries of liqueurs and aguardente brandies. These walks with a more recreational element always include a stop for a snack with seasonal products to regain one’s strength for the next part of the walk.
The Tavira Walking Tours guides have experience of trail running and athletics, and in-depth knowledge of the area where the walks take place. They are also trained in first aid in order to be able to provide assistance in emergencies, and in intangible heritage by the Algarve Regional Directorate of Culture.
