Algarve + Alentejo: Photo Tour

Personally, I don’t think there’s a more underrated location for photography in all of Europe than Alentejo. While holiday-makers and photographers head to the Algarve, the locals tend to keep Alentejo a secret.

This arid region of the country is full of castles, rolling hills, and skies wide open to the night sky.

This photography tour combines the absolute best of both the Algarve and Alentejo over 10 days.
