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. There are drinks and snacks aboard if you want a refreshment.
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.
I will provide soft drinks, water and snacks for the off road experience.
We will travel in a classic Portugues jeep, the "UMM". Normally we travel open to fully experience the nature but if it is…
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.
