Follow the shepherds in Algarve and have a great experience!

We offer very unique tours on our farm in the Serra do Caldeirão, one being walking with goats and a goat herder in the Algarve mountainside and a local cheese, wine and honey tasting.

Here you can discover what you could call the ‘real Portugal’.

The beauty of the countryside is immense with wildflowers and spectacular views and you can still find shepherds herding their sheep (and goats) and subsistence farmers working hard on their land to grow the food they need.

What is included:

  • Welcome to the farm;
  • Guided visit to the farm;
  • Nature walk that takes us to the goat herder;
  • Nature walk with the goats and the herder through the hills;
  • Wine, cheese and honey tasting in the farm.

What is not included:

  • Transportation to the farm

After booking we will send all the details of the reservation.

If you wish to propose another day or time for the experience, send us a message: [email protected] and we will do our best to reschedule, or we can include one more experience for all day.


Algarve farm Tour
We highly recommend this once-in-a-lifetime experience! Victoria Calderon

Virginia and Josh are simply the best hosts and tour guides of the Goat Walking Tour in the Portuguese countryside! We took our entire family and it was a very family-friendly tour and educational experience for us as American tourists eager to learn more about the Southern Portuguese culture and way of life. They were very kind and informational as they shared their knowledge of the local Portuguese agriculture and the devastating effects of depopulation in the area. The kids loved watching the goats eat grass in a clearing after walking through a trail and learning about the fruit trees and cork trees that grow on their land. We loved hearing the bells around their necks make a beautiful sound. There is also a large tree house for the kids to play on after the tour and they bring out a delicious goat cheese tray, olives, homemade bread, jams and local wines to enjoy afterwards. We highly recommend this once-in-a-lifetime experience to connect with nature and enjoy the Portuguese countryside in an authentic and organic way with amazing locals! Plus they speak English, Portuguese and Spanish!
