About us

The Happy Van is the realization of a daring dream, shaped by decades of distinct experiences. Paulo, with a solid 20-year career in the banking sector, and Gorete, following a passionate path in photography, joined forces to create something truly unique.

Our inception in 2018 was marked by the iconic vintage vans that have become symbols of our tours and events. Paulo, leaving behind a career in banking, and Gorete, with her passion for photography, brought a unique combination of skills and determination.

Initially, the vintage vans were our vehicles of choice, creating authentic and unforgettable experiences for our visitors.

Over the years, we have evolved. Today, we preserve the nostalgia of the vintage vans for special events, while our tours are conducted in vehicles with a lower environmental impact. This change reflects our commitment to sustainability, a conviction that goes beyond words to tangible actions.

From the banking sector to photography, from the vintage vans to more eco-friendly vehicles, the Happy Van is a testament to our adaptability and dedication to the Algarve.

We, Paulo and Gorete, form a team that embraces passion, experience, and determination to create lasting memories.

Join us on this unique journey, where authenticity and sustainability are guided by our passion for the Algarve.

Happy Van: Happiness is a Journey!
