Portuguese hospitality
We believ the really friendly people, the pleasant outdoor climate and the Portuguese hospitality make the Algarve a true active holiday and incentive destination in the world.


History
We have been cycling, canoeing & hiking in the Algarve since 1996.

In 2001 the organization started under the name “Foia Downhill Tours”, running downhill mountain bike tours from the Fóia, with 902 meters the highest mountain of the Serra de Monchique (Algarve).

In the following years the company enlarged its program with walking and canoe tours and the company´s name changed into Outdoor Tours. From this moment on more activities such as teambuilding, beach events, school camps, Nordic Walking, incentives and ocean kayak tours were added.

In the meantime Outdoor Tours developed close partnerships with selected Portuguese companies to provide more activities such as kite surfing, sailing, jeep safaris, wine tasting, golf, karting, dolphin watching and nightlife & entertainment.

17 years in guiding outdoor activity groups has shown us that you will have the most intensive travel experience in small groups. Our outdoor activity groups usually have a maximum of 15 people.

Visiting a country means an invitation by the local people. We aim on every tour that you meet the true hospitality and friendship of the local Portuguese people.

The local people make an effort to meet yours and our travel expectations. Therefore we commit to support the local economy by employing and book services offered by local people and entrepreneurs.

The environment is the most precious to all of us and our children. We aim to leave the Portuguese nature and countryside untouched after enjoying your outdoor experience. We clean up and distribute our garbage separately to the responsible government bodies.
