Wandelingen Algarve Portugal

Wandelingen Algarve Portugal

Diverse wandelingen Algarve

Wandelen is gezond! En dat niet alleen: de meest creatieve ideeën ontstaan vaak tijdens het wandelen. Bovendien leer je op een ontspannen wijze de prachtige omgeving kennen als je mee op pad gaat met de wandelingen Algarve Portugal!
Ik, Anne, wandel al 14 jaar in de Algarve en ken het gebied als mijn broekzak. Daarom neem ik je graag mee op niet voor-de-hand-liggende toeristische routes. Maar kies ik juist voor de verborgen paden die ik zelf ontdekte of die locals mij uitlegden.
Als gids neem ik je mee naar uiteenlopende natuurgebieden en pittoreske plaatsjes. Al wandelend geef ik je zowel uitleg over de wetenswaardigheden van de natuur en omgeving als over de Portugese cultuur.

Wandelen in de Algarve verschilt van wandelen elders. Hier wandel je kilometers zonder dat je iemand tegenkomt. Op dat ene oude boertje na. Daarnaast wandel je hier door gebieden die qua natuur sterk variëren, de ene keer zacht en kleurrijk, de andere keer ruig en grijs. Om over al het verse fruit nog maar te zwijgen.

Wandelingen hebben wij te kust en te keur. Ga mee en schrijf je in voor begeleide wandelingen Algarve! Graag deel ik enkele van mijn meest geliefde begeleide wandelingen Algarve:

Zuid- en westkust Algarve

  • Je kunt verschillende wandelingen doen vanuit onze B&B. Begin met een lange strandwandeling langs Meia Praia met oneindige views over de Atlantische Oceaan. Bovendien kunnen we aan het einde van de wandeling bij een uitloper van een rivier verschillende soorten inheemse vogels bewonderen. Daarnaast kunnen we een rondwandeling maken door het agrarische achterland, langs kwelders en mosselbanken. Het pad voert zelfs langs levadas (irrigatiekanalen). Ook de wandeling vanaf de vuurtoren van Lagos, Ponte Piedade, kan ik je van harte aanbevelen. Want dit kustpad leid je langs opvallende goudgele rotsformaties. De één nog mooier dan de ander. Je kijkt je ogen uit terwijl je naar het gezellige badplaatsje Praia da Luz wandelt. Daar is het tijd voor een terrasje.
  • Een echte must: tenminste één keer moet je langs de ongerepte authentieke westkust gewandeld hebben. Want wie wil zich niet wanen in vervlogen tijden? Omringd door ruige rotsen rust je even uit in slaperige kustdorpjes.

Silves

  • Deze wandeling staat te boek als een ware smaaksensatie. Je wandelt door sinaasappelplantages terwijl je de sappige vruchten plukt en eet. Na een pauze op een schaduwrijk terras, genieten we van een stadswandeling in het stadje Silves. Om deze keer ook een beetje cultuur te snuiven en kennis te maken met de zo kenmerkende Moorse invloeden in Silves.

Monchique

  • Absolute aanrader: de magistrale 360 graden-view-wandeling. Stel je voor: op de ‘top van de Algarve’ voel jij je on top of the world ! Zeker weten dat ook jij ‘begeisterd’ raakt door de fabuleuze uitzichten richting de Atlantische Oceaan.
  • Hof van Eden. Wie wil niet struinen naar een heilige bron? Fonta Santa staat bekend als een bron die eeuwig jong maakt! We volgen oeroude ezelspaden door een weelderige vallei, langs kabbelende beken. Hier pluk je zelf rijpe sinaasappels, pruimen of perziken van overhangende takken. Met recht een Hof van Eden!
  • De sluip-door-kruip-door wandeling door luisterrijke kurkeiken bossen, beveel ik ook graag aan. Er is zoveel moois te zien en te vertellen, voordat we als afsluiting neerstrijken op het terras van het eeuwenoude kuuroord Caldas de Monchique.

Moonlight Sunrise walk

Ook organiseert Anne voor de vroege vogels een Moonlight-Sunrise walk bij volle maan, of een sunrisewalk.  Want vroeg wandelen in hartje zomer is erg aangenaam.

Doe mee en schrijf je in

  • Halve dag van 10.00 tot 13.00 uur. In hartje zomer bij hoge temperaturen vertrekken we vroeg, van 6.30 tot 9.30 uur. Je kunt ook opteren voor een wandel-dagexcursie. Bijvoorbeeld van 10.00 tot 16.00 uur.

Walks in the Algarve

Walks in the Algarve

Walking is healthy! And not only that: the most creative ideas often arise while walking. Moreover, you will get to know the beautiful surroundings in a relaxed way when you go on walks in the Algarve!
I, Anne, have been walking in the Algarve for 14 years and know the area like the back of my hand. That’s why I like to take you off the beaten track. I prefer to take you along hidden paths that I discovered myself or that the locals explained to me.
As a guide I take you to various nature reserves and picturesque places. While walking I will explain to you the interesting facts and figures about nature and the environment. As well as about the Portuguese culture.

Walks in the Algarve

Walking in the Algarve is different from walking elsewhere. Here you can walk for miles without meeting anyone. Except for that one old farmer. In addition, you walk through areas that vary greatly in nature, sometimes sweet and colorful, other times rough and gray. Not to mention all the fresh fruit we can pick along the way. We have too many walks to offer. Come along and sign up for guided walks in the Algarve! I would like to share some of my most beloved Algarve guided walks:

Algarve South and West Coast

You can do different walks from our B&B. Start with a long beach walk along Meia Praia with infinite views over the Atlantic Ocean. In addition, at the end of the walk at a spur of a river, we can admire several species of native birds. We can also take a circular walk through the agricultural hinterland, past salt marshes and mussel beds. The path even leads along levadas (irrigation canals). I can also recommend a roundwalk from the lighthouse of Lagos, Ponte da Piedade. Because this coastal path leads you past striking golden rock formations.

One even more beautiful than the other. It’s even possible to walk to the cozy seaside town of Praia da Luz. At the end of our walks there is always time for coffee and cake at a terrace. A real must: at least once you must have walked along the unspoilt authentic west coast; Costa Vicentina. Because who doesn’t want to imagine themselves in bygone times? Rugged rocks, and sleepy coastal villages. Fit for surfers

Silves

This walk is known as a true taste sensation of the walks in the Algarve. You will walk through orange plantations while you pick and eat the juicy fruits. After a break on a shady terrace, we enjoy a city sightseeing walk in the town of Silves. We make time to sniff a bit of culture and get acquainted with the characteristic Moorish influences in Silves.

Monchique

An absolute must: the magnificent 360 degree view walk. Imagine: on the ‘top of the Algarve’ you feel on top of the world! You can be sure that you will also be ‘intoxicated’ by the fabulous views towards the Atlantic Ocean. This walk is scheduled for the 5th of October 2022

Or the Garden of Eden. Who doesn’t want to make a stroll to visit a holy well? Fonta Santa is known as a spring which water makes you forever young! We follow ancient donkey trails through a lush valley, along babbling brooks. Here you can pick your own ripe oranges, plums or peaches from overhanging branches. Truly a Garden of Eden!

I also recommend the sneak-by-creep-through walk through glorious cork oak forests. There is so much beauty to see and tell, before we finally settle down on the terrace of the ancient spa town of Caldas de Monchique.

Moonlight Sunrise walk

Anne also organizes a full moon Moonlight-Sunrise walk or a sunrise walk for the early birds. Because early walking in the middle of summer is recommended.

Palmistry Algarve; Coaching, Workshops & Courses

Palmistry Algarve; Coaching, Workshops & Courses

“The hands are a blueprint of the soul”.
If you decide today to make changes in your life
in due time the lines in the hand will change as
well.

Purpose of a Palmistry Algarve workshop/course

Why choose to sign up for a palmistry workshop? Because an introduction into palmistry is a playful manner to learn what hand shapes, fingers, knuckles, hills as well as hand lines can tell of one’s character, qualities, blockades, passions, and life course. Above all it’s a relaxing way to get to know each other.

Contents of the workshop/course

To illustrate; First of all, we will mainly devote our time to learn about hand shapes and fingers. The shape, thickness and length of each finger phalanx provide a wealth of information about a person’s qualities. Additionally, the position of the fingers can indicate how you are dealing with your life at that particular moment. Subsequently, we will briefly treat the mayor lines being: the life line, heart line, head line and line of fate. Did you know, that if you decide today to make a change in your life as a result the palm lines will change as well. This being within half a year.

Palmistry lines

First of all; The Lifeline is a representation of the physical strength and the quantity of physical energy. While the Heart Line gives us an idea how we live our emotional life. However, also what kind of partner and friends we choose. Furthermore, the Saturn line shows your life path and is subject to change. What the Head line tells us, is how we use our intelligence and what is our way of thinking. Meanwhile the Apollo line indicates creativity and the experience of happiness and Joy. As a result, the Mercury line is an indication of your communicative and learning skills.

All these lines show important traits of someone’s character. Besides the acquisition of knowledge, we will learn above all through practicing. This by looking at our own hands and those of our fellow students. Next palmistry workshop will take place the 3rd of December at 10.30 at The Art of Joy.

Palmistry Algarve consultations

If, on account of the workshop you would like to receive and extended individual counselling Palmistry or Tarot. As you are interested to be informed about your qualities, passions, life, character. Or you have a specific question; you can sign up with me. Both during the workshop as well as during the consultations, I will not give any specific future predictions. This is because I do not think it is ethical. Moreover, the lines change if you change your life. My aim is to bring about awareness of possibilities and talents. I can show you trends if you proceed your life as you do. However, I believe that the future lies in your own hands.

Next Palmistry workshop is on the 10th of December 2022.
