Ideal conditions for that adrenaline rush

Even the most fearless of visitors should find enough variety in the Algarve to fill their free time with active sports, always with nature as a magnificent backdrop.

Breathtaking paragliding or hang gliding flights are the perfect choice for adventure lovers. Taking advantage of good winds along the entire Vicentine Coast, flights provide a unique opportunity to contemplate the magnificent splendour of the cliffs and the azure seas.

Balloon rides are, on the face of it, a more sedate option, but also promise the thrill of a uniquely panoramic view of the Algarve countryside, contrasting the lush greens of the inland areas with the dazzling blues of the coast.

Back on terra firma, climbing or abseiling are other attractive options that can be undertaken on the Cerro de São Miguel in Moncarapacho (Olhão), one of the highest hills in the whole region, or on the cliffs at Rocha da Pena, near Salir in Loulé.  More action is guaranteed by paintball centres located in the mountain ravines of São Brás de Alportel.

Lower still – in fact, underground – the Algarve’s cave systems, especially those of Moncarapacho and Loulé, have enough interest to keep the most ardent cave enthusiast happy.

Whether you prefer soaring through the air, or your feet firmly planted on the ground, visitors looking for action and adventure will find plenty to do in the Algarve.
