Full description

Discover the natural wonders and unbeatable scenery of the Algarve on this guided buggy trip from Olhos de Agua in Albufeira. Pass by Paderne's local farms and orange fields, stop to see the castle, and visit a cafe. Drive solo or with a passenger.

Your buggy adventure starts at the tour headquarters in Albufeira, where you’ll gear up on a 1- or 2-person buggy, depending on what you chose. If riding in a pair, you’ll have the option to switch drivers in between the journey.

For optimal safety during our adventure, you’ll ride alongside a licensed guide and each vehicle must have at least one adult with a Class B driver's license.

Taking off from the headquarters, enjoy a safe, low-speed ride along streets and dirt tracks where only off-road vehicles can go. Arrive at the Castle of Paderne and snap photos of 360-degree views (entry not included). As you explore, learn about the region’s history from your guide.

From there, continue to high hilltops to take breathtaking pictures. After descending back down, visit the village of Paderne to enjoy a short break at a characteristic café to try a local pastry (costs not included). At the end of the tour, return round-trip to Albufeira.

Very nice excursion, some technical passages and other rapids but overall without any risk. The buggies are a bit old but the guide is great. Attention for less than 1m70 the driving position is unsuitable because the seats are not adjustable so the steering wheel is too far.

Great time spent with Adrian. non-guided tour in French (language not offered when booking) we still opted for this service provider and do not regret it. Adrian makes the effort to try to try with the French he knows, very fun experience, excellent moment with magnificent landscapes observed.
