What you'll do

We'll drive out to Aljezur on the West Coast of the Algarve to the AEZA Dog Shelter. The aim of the shelter is to re-home the dogs that come into their care. In order to do this the dogs need as much interaction and love from people as possible...this is where we come in.

Aljezur is rich in history and has a great scenic walk up to the Aljezur Castle. We'll take a group of dogs up to the Aljezur castle and enjoy the breeze and views of Aljezur. In total the walk will take around 1.5 hours.

From here we will drive over to a beautiful west coast beach just 15 minutes from the shelter. Where I will serve you a homemade tapas style lunch and three different types of Portuguese wine at a local picnic spot or right on the beach (wind permitting). After lunch your free to relax on the beach, go for a swim and soak up all the wonderful Portuguese sunshine.

Our goal each and every tour is to ensure that you see and experience the best of the Algarve has to offer. Chris has his Wilderness First Aid training certificate and worked with one of the leading hiking businesses in the Algarve.

This will definitely be the highlight of my Algarve-trip! I had high expectations going into this (Who wouldn’t when you see there’s dogs, wine and beach?) but Chris for sure exceeded those. It seems like there’s nothing he doesn’t know. He knows almost all dogs by name, what they like and what they’re scared of. He’s also a walking encyclopedia of the Algarve. The lunch spot was AMAZING and somehow he brought all of my favorite foods. Definitely would book this experience again sometime!

The experience with Chris was one of the best days of our holiday. We loved to walk with the dogs in the beautiful Aljezur. The dogs looked very well cared for and were very happy to take the walk with us, that gave us a lot of joy. Chris could tell us a lot about the environment, Portugal and the shelter. After taking the dogs back to the shelter, we could have a quick visit to the cattery around the corner, what was a lovely experience as well, cause we love cats. After the walk Chris took us to a lovely beach on the west coast and could tell us about that beach and some cool places in the neighborhood. We had an amazing lunch at a beautiful spot near the cliffs. The water was really wild that day, what made us to see a great natural spectacle from the sea. Chris made the lunch special vegetarian for us, what was really great. We would recommend everyone to do a tour with Chris and enjoy it a lot!

This was awesome. I would rate it 6 out of 5 if I could. Chris is a great guy who really goes the extra mile to create an unforgettable experience. The hike with the dogs was super nice and you could tell that the dogs enjoyed it just as much. Then he took us for a homemade lunch in one of the most beautiful spots of the Algarve, one that we never wouldve found if it wasn't for Chris. The lunch was delicious and he took our dietary restrictions into account very thoughtfully.

This unique experience is a must do if in Lagos or the surrounding area. It’s off the beaten track so be ready for a little hike with the dogs and some stunning coastline. Chris is a great guy, a super host and is really passionate about his tours. You discover the amazing area (triangle) between, Lagos, Aljezur and Sagres. There was 4 of us and we loved his experience, we couldn’t recommend it more. Chris is immersed in the culture and has a great personality with loads of stories and life experiences. We had a tasty homemade picnic, really delicious, plenty of variety with some wine and we’re already looking forward to our next trip.
