4 day trans south tour
What is the Trans-South? It’s a 4-day tour that aims to reveal the inner Algarve and the deepest and beautiful Alentejo!From the landscapes of the Algarve hills to the beautiful plains of the inner Alentejo, ending with the magnificent sceneries of the Vicentine Coast, this tour has it all. Prepare yourself for an experience you won’t forget! The tour lasts four days with a three night stay at a hotel on a half board basis. Picnic lunches will be provided by the participants.
The morning of this first day starts in off-road, with some difficulties accessible to all. Then our tour continues and we’ll go around Oudelouca Dam till S. Marcos da Serra, where we’ll have lunch.In the afternoon, we’ll discover the genuine nature of the rural world, alongside with an archaeo-metallurgical and natural heritage of great wealth. This route will take us to the inner Algarve, throughout the typical algarvian landscape, driving along good roads, used in the 2006 Dakar Rally!By the end of the day, we’ll arrive at Loulé where we’ll sleep at the Hotel Dom Fernando, in the city centre.
We’ll leave for our second day off-road adventure, but before entering deep into the algarvian highlands, we’ll drive through a very beautiful route with an amazing view over Faro. Then again we’ll drive along roads used in the 2006 Dakar Rally where we’ll find large and small dams and many streams.
We will arrive at the beautiful Alcoutim village in the evening and we’ll be hosted at the youth hostel, a beautiful location just above the Guadiana river.
On this third day of adventure, many surprises await us. We’ll drive along the great south river through saline ponds and marshes, dams and streams. We’ll continue by hills and valleys, following the path of millenary Neolithic remains as well as Roman and Arabic presence.
A few kilometers ahead, the scenery changes when the green of the river banks turns brown as we enter the plains where we can feel Alentejo magic! Driving doesn’t require great experience but makes us feel privileged. Few outsiders have the opportunity to go through these tracks!
Before arriving at Herdade da Barrosinha, where we’re going to sleep, we’ll still have a few sand paths that will whet your appetite for the next day.
We’ll leave for the day that will remain in everyone’s memory as the most exciting and demanding, but also the most rewarding in terms of driving! We’ll drive many miles on sand! Driving on sand is an extremely entertaining practice, but it involves some risks including the strong possibility of the vehicle bogging if you aren’t careful. However we’ll be there to provide you all the necessary guidelines and everyone will be certainly delighted with the chosen routes.Besides driving on sand, we’ll drive through beautiful landscapes of the Vicentine Coast: Vila Nova de Milfontes, Porto Covo, Pessegueiro Island, Zambujeira do Mar, just to mention the most important.We’ll arrive at Portimão by the end of the day, surely tired but proud and with many stories to tell!A lot of driving, adrenalin, bogging, fears, in short, it’ll happen a little bit of everything.
