Discover the laid back Algarve. After grooming and harnessing our friendly donkeys we begin our excursion through the beautiful Moorish town of Almeijoafras (arab: the town with elevated wells). Brimming with small animals and seasonal fruits and vegetables ripe for picking. Old farmstead (Quinta) with its historical features, medieval ruins and “age old” trails are taking us back to a time full of myths and stories. After leaving the village we cross fields with olive-, carob-, almond- and orange-plantations. The scent of lavender and thyme will accompany you.
