Activity Overview
The Orange Kingdom!

According to an ancient legend, the Algarve, once known the almond kingdom, became the orange kingdom, after a Nordic princess married a Moorish king. The Arade food tour will help unveil this and other legends of the former capital of the Algarve.

Discover the river that has fed both the land and its people throughout the ages. Taste the famous Algarvian oranges and the legendary almond flavours in many different ways. This region of Portugal is famed for its sumptuous cuisine, which features dishes such as yummy seafood (king code, baby cuttlefish and sea bass in garlic and lemon are key dishes here), cozido stew and delicious pastries. Add to that some local wine varietals and you have got the perfect recipe for the trip of a lifetime.

Our tour takes you all the way up to the iconic red castle where you can take in panoramic vistas of the city. Our engaging and expert local guides will let you in on all of the local secrets, as well as regaling you with ancient legends of beautiful princesses and Moorish kings. Come join us in this culinary experience!
