Full description
Start your Albufeira and Vilamoura nighttime adventure with convenient pickup from your accommodation. After a short meet and greet with your driver/guide take a scenic view in a funky classic VS camper van, specially lit inside and prepared for a night out in party mode.

Take a cool drive to the seashore and stop at Salgados beach where your photography fun begins. With you and your group you can roam the beach looking for the best spots to take photos that you will cherish for years to come. Some of the most frequently used techniques are Astrophotography and Light Painting.

Enjoy a break during the evening and put your feet up, observe the moon, stars and planets under a clear sky - on lucky evenings you will even see shooting stars.

Amazing & unusual night watching the stars & picnic, very informative

I booked this for my husband who enjoys photography and thought i would be reading a book for the evening. When Paulo arrived at our front door we found out that we were the only ones for the tour and he had come to Vilamora especially for us, he really made the effort. He was very informative along the way to the beach and once we got there. e laid a blanket on the sand, bottle of wine and cooked us a traditional black pig sausage dish and explained where it came from. Then he went on to the sky which I found really interesting although I am not into the starts at all. My husband found it really helpful with night time photography. We go to Vilamora every year and if Paulo is doing a similar activity next year we will defiantly go. Highly recommended, brilliant night. Thank you.
