What you'll do

We leave Silves and go straight into the hills. We use a classic Portuguese jeep to explore little paths and take our time to enjoy the views. Often the way will be steep so the ride will be exciting as well as beautiful. You will experience a variety of scenery. There will be hills and valleys, arid and green landscapes, open views as well as dense vegetation. The first part of our journey has many ups and downs, the return is gentler with panoramic views of the Monchique hills and coastline.

Along the way we will stop at a few secret spots to stretch our legs and enjoy the surroundings. If you are lucky you may see some local wildlife. I have already seen deer, boar, foxes and other animals...

After crossing a river bed we will stop at the "Quinta do Francês" Winery. The estate is known for its beautiful vineyards and award winning red, white and rosé wines. We will join a tour of the vineyards and cellar and be guided through the wine-making process. Afterwards you will have the opportunity to taste 3 of their wines.

On the way back a few minutes offroad brings us to a vantage point above the river, a good place to share a few facts about the history of Silves.

Where you'll be

The places I show are away from the road and hard to find. We will be in the hills north of Silves between the Arade and Odelouca rivers (although we cross above the Odelouca river for the wine tour). The first part of the journey is adventurous with ups and downs. The return journey is along a gentler path, with panoramic views of the Monchique hills and coastline.

The nature is beautiful.But doing this exercise in a Jeep without safety equipment is quite worrying.
