Sports Activities Trips & Tours Hiking and Trekking Walking Tours Off Road
Algarve Sensations – experience the Algarve in a unique and immersive way. Guided Benagil hiking tours along the Seven Hanging Valleys trail, and underground salt mine adventures – 230m beneath the surface. Compelling experiences by Algarve Sensations.

The Algarve is a sensory paradise. Feel the warmth of the sun, listen to the murmur of the waves, enjoy the scents of the ocean and shimmering light. Led by  knowledgeable and passionate guides, Algarve Sensations guided tours create lasting memories.

The Algarve Sensations team, led by Sebastião, is focused on ensuring the best possible experience for their clients. Passionate about the Algarve, they share their love of the unique landscape, its traditions and secrets, geology and culture. In a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, they share so much insight during each tour, adding immeasurably to the whole experience.

Explore the cliff-top trails of the famous Seven Hanging Valleys route (considered one of the most beautiful hiking routes in the world). Walk from the village of Benagil across the cliffs that loom above the pretty beach, and see the famous Benagil cave from above. A huge domed cave, with natural openings at the top which give you different perspective on one of the most iconic spots in the Algarve.

Continue on the trail to Praia da Marinha, one of the most picturesque beaches in Europe. The views from the cliffs are fabulous. You can see the heart-shaped double sea-arch and the different rock formations, before heading to the beach itself. Here you can relax in the sun, or enjoy a swim in the sea. Praia da Marinha is one of the best beaches for snorkelling in the Algarve (a full-face snorkelling mask is provided).

The final stop of the tour is at the ancient Senhora da Rocha (Lady of the Rock) chapel. One of the most romantic places in the Algarve, and a pretty unique wedding venue, the chapel perches on the cliff-top, looking out to sea.

230 metres beneath the streets of Loulé is a functioning rock salt mine. You can enter this underground world and descend into the earth, following the guide along the walkway. The route is just over 1km, and the information from your guide gives you insights into this fascinating yet little known place. While salt pans are easily visible, this mine is quite a different experience. The geological formations are over 230 million years old. During the tour you'll learn of the history of the mine and its role in the local community and ecomony.

Included in the experience is a visit to the mine's gallery to see the exhibition dedicated to the history of Saint Barbara, patron saint of miners, interpreted by contemporary artist Klaus Zylla through twelve very colorful paintings.

At the end of the tour, receive a “Welcome Pack” that includes 1 bottle of Portuguese red wine and a jar of fleur de sel, the best and most exquisite salt in the world.
