About the ANF

The Algarve Nature Fest is the biggest annual nature tourism event in the region. In recent stagings of the event, the initiative has promoted outdoor activities for the public and for schools, familiarising people with what is on offer for tourists in the region. Covering everything from mountain-bike rides, themed walks, and sailing and diving for beginners to stand-up paddle-boarding, kayaking and bird-watching boat trips, the Algarve Nature Fest has included a wide range of activities in its programme in previous years.

This year, the aim is the same – to spread the word about the Algarve’s natural heritage – but the format has been changed because the of the current situation. The Algarve Nature Fest 2020 has been designed for the health professionals who have been on the front line since March, when the pandemic was declared.

And so the invitation to discover the natural Algarve in a range of outdoor experiences is exclusively for these professionals, as a way of thanking them and showing recognition for everything they have done for the community.

It is to them that we dedicate this year’s Algarve Nature Fest.
