Go on a ‘treasure hunt’ or a ‘safari’ in Albufeira - the panoramic routes around the town, seen from a 4x4, are terrific.
Head for the Monchique mountain range and try out abseiling or take a ride on a death slide – you’ll get an adrenalin buzz while enjoying the wonderful mountain landscape.
Or check out the cart-racing track at Almancil (Quarteira), only five minutes from Faro Airport.
And all over the Algarve, mountain bike routes, walking routes and bicycle routes can make a stay even more exciting.
For those of a calmer disposition, relaxing horse rides at Odiáxere Dam or in Sagres will help you to discover a different Algarve.
