We can help you organize to share a rental car with other participants. Just let us know when you register!
to Olho Branco by public transport: it is easiest and cheapest to book an airport shuttle to Lagos bus station through https://www.hoppa.com/en this will cost approximately 15EUR (tell them that you want to go to Lagos central bus station). From there you can find a bus to Aljezur via https://www.rede-expressos.pt/ (costs approx. 7EUR) - or we can arrange to pick you up at Lagos central bus station (fee for pick up from Lagos is 25EUR).
Or we can arrange for an airport transfer directly to the farm (fee for pick up from airport Faro is 100EUR).

Bus only goes 3x daily and only the first bus at 7:30AM gets you into Aljezur on time for the start of the retreat.
