Why join?

This is a trip for a refined type of traveler who is looking for some soul-searching while exploring a new destination’s beauty and wonder. There’s probably only a few places around Europe where you can find a combination of historic castle towns, enchanting fishing villages, wonderful hiking trails and natural treasures—soaring cliffs, hidden sea caves, scalloped bays, sandy beaches and golden islands—and the Algarve is surely one of those!



Highlight
Experience the magic of the south coast of the Algarve. From the scenic cliffs of Lagos, to the organic gardening lifestyle in town, to the oldest hippy village in Portugal.

Itinerary

Day 1

Monday in Lagos


Welcome to the historic and characterful southwestern coast of Portugal! Everyone is to touch down by noon, where you’ll be greeted and transferred to a magnificent resort to get cosy and settle in.

Once you gather with your fellow travelers, we’ll all head out together to explore the distinctive charm of the city of Lagos. We’ll end the day with a group welcome dinner back at the resort.

Day 2

From Ponta de Piedade to Porto de Mos


We kick-off your first morning with breakfast at the resort, followed by a dynamic eco-garden experience to learn about the principles of permaculture and the cycles of special organic farms.

Come afternoon, we’ll embark on a 3-hour picturesque hike to witness the cliffs, bays and beaches of Porto de Mos. The view will surely take your breath away!

Day 3

Meditate, Kayak and Shop at the Local Market


This morning, we’ll wake up a bit earlier than usual to enjoy some soulful sunrise meditation and a light walk amid rocky cliffs before having some breakfast at the resort.

We’ll then dedicate the afternoon for a scenic 3-hour kayak tour before heading to the organic market by 6 pm to do some local shopping (at your own expense) for maybe cooking some dinner together!

Day 4

Relaxing Day in Rural Guesthouse


After taking your breakfast at the resort, we’ll transfer you to a new accommodation – a splendid rural guesthouse – for a different experience.

The rest of the day will be filled with a full-body yoga session, an optional (additional cost) relaxing massage session, some pool time and a walk around the nearby cork-tree forest. By the time it’s 5 pm, we’ll all gather together to enjoy an Afro-Mandinga drumming class 🥁

Day 5

Hike and Meditate in Nature


Wake up to a delicious, healthy breakfast at the guesthouse before packing your light bag for our full-day hike to Salema, a quaint seaside village with a popular beach with dinosaur footprints! Along the way, we’ll enjoy some much-needed yoga stretching exercises, a lunch stop to fill our bellies and mindful meditation breaks in beautiful spots.

You’ll want to end this day with a reflective, good night’s rest.

Day 6

Sea & Sun at Luz


After breakfast at the guesthouse, you have the option to book for a relaxing 45-minute massage session or spend the morning as you like.

Come noon, today’s adventure will be about spending the day unwinding, getting sand in your hair and a tan on your skin by the beach! It’s a good life…🌞

As evening falls, we will enjoy a farewell feast with the group.

Day 7

A Bittersweet Farewell


Savour an early, slow morning on your last day in the Algarve however you like! After breakfast and check-out by 12 pm, we’ll make our way to the train station or airport and head on back to our normal lives – hopefully with wonderful memories of a magical place where we reconnected with ourselves.

It’s goodbye to the Algarve, for now 🙁

Your host

Tania Slabbert

Hey everyone! I’m Tania from South Africa. I’ve been traveling around the world since I was 18, trying 26 different jobs over the last 24 years to make my way from one place to another. If you’re wondering where I’m headed to next – it’s the stunning Algarve!

I wanted to organise this trip for you all to join me in rejuvenating our souls together and inspiring each other while being surrounded by bountiful wonders of nature. The Algarve has a very unique character to it that is not easy to describe in words – it must be witnessed and felt! So, if you’re interested, all you need to do is book a flight and leave the rest to me!
