I am a self-confessed nature enthusiast. Over the past 20 plus years, I have been exploring and discovering the natural heritage of the area where I was born and raised. I have always been passionate about trying to find out the secrets behind every different landscape, ecosystem and each rock, plant, or animal that be form part of it. After many years of working in the food industry, some of them in the cork stoppers industry, I realised that this amazing natural richness should also be shared with other people. Then I launched PerNatur in 2015, now I have the honour and pleasure of sharing it with people from all over the world.

This tour takes place in the inland area of Algarve, a area severely affected by rural exodus and his now with a serious problem of population decline and ageing, but still remains with the characteristics and heritage as it was heavily inhabited. This region is out of the tourism routes and not very easily accessible to visitors, because is distant from the coast line where all the tourism is concentrate and all the information is available.

Mr. Luis has a wide ranging knowledge about oak trees, plants in the forest, birds and insects. He gave us an insight into the importance and complexity of using oak trees in the Algarve region and beyond for economical and environmental purposes. After the excursion we enjoyed a hearty meal in a local restaurant. Thanks to Luis we spent an enjoyable day in the Algarve mountains.

Luis is a enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, with a very good command of English. He has a passion for the information he is conveying to you, whether it is about the vanishing way of life in the countryside, or the flora and fauna he shows you. He is a very personable guide, and it was a pleasure to spend a half day with him

We enjoyed this tour so much!! The area is beautiful and Luís tells you all about it. We walked all morning and didn't see any other human being, just perfect. Luís knows everything about the (cork) trees, the plants, the flowers, the butterflies, the insects, the birds, we couldn't have wished for a better guide. The information about the corktrees is so interesting. There is so much to tell and you just keep on wondering about the process and the amount of time it takes to get a corkstopper for your bottle of wine. Don't hesitate, just book this tour, you won't be disappointed.

Luís picked us up on time. He is friendly, professional and very knowledgable. We learnt a lot about the trees, but also about the culture, plants and the area’s biodiversity. Luís has the eye of a hawk and we were able to see a lot of flora and fauna.
