Highlights

Paderne Village

Paderne is one of the oldest villages in the municipality of Albufeira, maintaining rural characteristics and traces of an inland village with its castle.

Paderne Castle

Paderne Castle is an old fortification located in the parish of Paderne, in the municipality of Albufeira, in the Algarve. It was built in the late 12th century by the Berbers, in an area about 7.5 kilometers (4.7 mi) inland. The building is located just 8.2 km (5.1 miles) from the tourist town of Albufeira. It is believed to be one of the original castles that occupy the shield of the Portuguese national flag.

Alte Village

Alte is one of the most typical villages in the Algarve, this beautiful region of southern Portugal. Its white houses, inscribed in the Mediterranean green of nature, stand out against the intense blue of the southern sky.

Alte Natural Springs

Alte Natural Springs is one of the most pleasant places in the region, with its crystal clear waters of the Alte stream, surrounded by a wooded area of great beauty and peace of mind.

Legends, Stories and Traditions

During the tour, there will be stops to share local legends, stories about the Algarve and also some traditions that remain alive from our ancestors.

Orange Groves

Sun-ripened in a region with 300 days of sunshine per year, oranges from Algarve are incredibly sweet and juicy.

Cork Oak Forest

The Cork Oak Forests are called “Montado de Sobro”. This is one of the richest ecosystems in the world and Portugal has the largest area in the world (concentrates 34% of the world’s area, in a total of 736 thousand hectares which correspond to 23% of the national forest).

Sheep

The “Campaniça” sheep, typical of the region, is characterized by small animals but very well adapted to the rough conditions of the Algarve’s Inland. Its wool is recognized to be water-repellent, used to make blankets and fisherman’s clothing.

Quinta do Freixo

With an area of around 800Ha, Quinta do Freixo is located in the heart of the Algarve and is dedicated to activities ranging from Agriculture and Livestock to Transformation and Tourism in Rural Areas. The entire area is certified in organic production.

Jams Tasting | Quinta do Freixo

Produced without dyes or preservatives and with fruits and vegetables from our own production, our jams are recognized for their quality and exquisite taste. They are sold at Quinta do Freixo, Quinta do Mel and in several gourmet stores in Portugal and other countries. Some leading hotel chains have also opted for our jams to serve their guests.

Fig Brandy Tasting

Fig firewater is, along with the “Medronho” firewater, the most typical distilled beverages in the Algarve. Let’s try?

Streams

Crossing streams during the tour (depending on weather conditions, they may or may not have water).

Rocha da Pena

Rocha da Pena is a prominent rocky outcrop of the Algarve’s Barrocal. Its particular orography gives rise to an impressive diversity of fauna and flora in a relatively small area.

Panoramic views of the Algarve

Throughout the tour, there will be many stunning landscapes and panoramic views of the surrounding nature of the Algarve interior.
