Your Algarve Coast and Country Solo Holiday Overview

Stretching across the southernmost tip of mainland Portugal, the Algarve is famous for its year-round superb climate, fantastic beaches, dramatic landscape and quaint villages. And when you join us on this 7-night solo traveller holiday, you’ll have the opportunity to experience them all for yourself. At the start of your Algarve holiday, there will be an opportunity to socialise with your fellow travellers during your ‘Welcome drink and meal.’ We’ll enjoy excursions to the picturesque, whitewashed town of Alte, the Moorish-influenced town of Silves and the famous fishing villages of Lagos & Sagres. A visit to the most western point of Europe, known as ‘the Edge of the World’ is a highlight for many guests. This trip also includes plenty of leisure time to visit the abundance of great beaches, bars, shops, restaurants and local markets by yourself or with your fellow travellers, with recommendations from your expert guide.
