About the Tour:
South Explorers invites you to join us on a half-day tour that promises to be a feast for your senses. Departing from Lagos, we'll venture into the heart of the Algarve to explore Monchique Mountain, a verdant paradise that offers some of the most breathtaking views in Portugal. This isn't just a mountain tour; it's an immersive experience that allows you to connect deeply with the natural world.

The Journey to Monchique:
As we ascend the mountain roads in our air-conditioned minivan, you'll be struck by the lush, evergreen vegetation that surrounds you. Monchique is a sanctuary of natural beauty, its landscapes a rich tapestry of flora and fauna. The air here is crisp and clean, tinged with the earthy scent of pine and eucalyptus. It's a place where each curve in the road reveals a new vista, each more stunning than the last.

Exploring the Town of Monchique:
Upon reaching the charming town of Monchique, you'll feel as if you've stepped into another world. This is a place where time seems to stand still, its narrow streets and traditional architecture a testament to the Algarve's rich history. You'll have ample time to explore Monchique at your own pace, perhaps visiting the local artisan shops or sampling some of the region's famous Medronho, a traditional Portuguese fruit brandy.

The Ascent to Fóia:
From Monchique, we'll continue our journey to Fóia, the highest point in the Algarve and one of the tallest peaks in Portugal. At an elevation of 902 meters, Fóia offers 360º panoramic views that are nothing short of awe-inspiring. From this vantage point, you can see the entire Algarve spread out before you, from the sparkling Atlantic Ocean to the rolling hills that mark the region's interior. It's a view that captures the essence of the Algarve, its natural beauty magnified by the height and clarity of your surroundings.
