What you'll do

The beauty of nature with a taste of adventure !

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 ...

In the hotter months we often ride in the morning or evening. At these times the light is beautiful and the air is cool. We normally ride open but if it is too hot I can mount a sun shade.

Hello, I am Thyl (pronounced “Teel”). I have lived the last years in the city of Silves and love it! I am a nature enthusiast and in the winter months also a landscape painter. I have enjoyed many hours exploring the nearby countryside. I wish to show the beautiful landscapes I have discovered and share my local knowledge about the nature and history.

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. 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.

Rated 4.98 out of 5 from 42 reviews.

Great jeep tour, we had a wonderful time! Thylbert is a friendly guide with lots of knowledge about the area. He took us to some great remote places with a wonderful view. The jeep ride itself provided plenty of fun and adventure, definitely recommend!

The trip was a cherry on top at the end of our trip in Algarve region. Thylbert has very good stories and background info about the region and the portuguese culture. The jeep is amazing, the view is spectacular. Strongly recommended!

I had a great two hours watching the sunset in the beautiful hills around Silves, talking about the history of the area. I'd recommend to anyone! do it with a wine tour at the end!

Expérience exceptionnelle !!! Découverte d'endroits merveilleux avec un hôte extraordinaire, très bon guide. Si vous ne devez faire qu'une seule activité à Algarve c'est celui-ci. Nous avons été émerveillé avec mon mari.
