Walk yourself healthy

It’s November and peak season has been and gone. However, that doesn’t mean that we stop operating. We are organising tours all year around and for some of our tours, this is actually the best time of the year. No one is too keen on doing a 6-hour walking tour at 38 degrees in August! The mild winter climate at this time of year lends itself to explore this beautiful area especially on foot. What’s more, there are some really convincing health benefits to walking, so why not walk yourself healthy whilst on holiday?! Here’s a short list of how walking can improve your health:

Top 6 health reasons why walking is good for you:

1.) increased cardiovascular and pulmonary (heart and lung) fitness

2.) reduced risk of heart disease and stroke

3.) improved management of conditions such as hypertension (high blood pressure), high cholesterol, joint and muscular pain or stiffness, and diabetes

4.) stronger bones and improved balance

5.) increased muscle strength and endurance

6.) reduced body fat

Walking has never sounded so attractive! So, are you ready? Get in touch and we’ll guide you through the beautiful Costa Vicentina Nature Park on a walking tour! Get healthy and find out more about the flora & fauna as well as local history with your local guide. We have a variety of walking tours available, so check out https://www.sandytoes-algarve.com/hikes  for details !

Learn to ride off-road with us

Having had such positive feedback over the last 18months our Trailriding company – Algarve Trailriding Tours now offers what we ingeniously call the First Time Offroad Experience – FTOE. The name, as logical as it sounds, however, doesn’t necessarily only attract people doing an offroad Trailriding adventure for the first time. It is proving very popular with riders of Dual Sport or larger Adventure Bikes i.e. those on BMW GS1200 or KTM 1190 adventure style motorbikes. We’re finding an increasing number of riders looking to get basic skills experience and confidence whilst riding on smaller sized dirtbikes such as our fleet of AJP 250cc motorcycles. The skills learnt with us are directly transferable to dual sport riding as well as good skills to keep with you for life, regardless of what type of Motorbike you may ride, road, dirtbike etc.

So, if you’re looking for your first time adventure or looking for improved skills/knowledge or needing a shot of confidence, please do ask us at Algarve Trailriding Tours about doing the FTOE course.
