Discover the Algarve in a vintage VW Van
Happy Van, to share happy moments!
Happy Van was born. like all dreams, from the need for change, and here we are to do it with you! Welcome!
We are a Tourist Animation company in the Algarve that provides ‘Experience Tourism’ and ‘Creative Tourism’ which is linked to the vast regional heritage and local development of the Algarve.
You are invited to discover this region with our happy guides, taking you on Arts, Gastronomy, Nature, Night, Heritage and Taylor-Made tours.
We use our fancy vintage VW vans in most events and trips we have. These versatile, reliable and charismatic vehicles add to the whole adventure, creating an emotive power of nostalgia wherever we go.
Every single van has its own name: Maria Rita is the blue and white one, Maria Inês is the eggplant coloured one, and Maria Luísa was red and white, but is now dressing another colour.
They are our peace, love, and freedom symbols, and fully represent the Happy Van’s essence and what we most believe in.
In couples or in groups, you’ll love every minute and certainly leave with a little more of the Algarve in your heart!
Unique Experience of the year 2019 in the Algarve!
"This is such a remarkable experience and I cannot recommend this enough. Paulo was an excellent guide with lots of local knowledge and history. The places he took the tour was breath taking and often off the beaten track. I have no hesitation to recommend this for anyone and any age. If I had more time, I would have loved to experience the other tours this company has to offer! You will be guaranteed an experience that will enrich your body, mind and soul!"
"When the best of Portugal is revealed, under the back of those who know best, the result can only be perfect! Maximum style, good vibrations, heat, sea, wind-in-the-face, music in the pocket ... Hmmmm, good!"
"The trip is worth it! Far from imagining that I would get to know and enjoy an authentic Algarve. Its people, its flavors, its smell of carob hard to forget. The places that would offer their sights, the sunset and the night would bring a magnificent sky. And for all these experiences I have to thank the magnificent Happyvan team. Thank you very much for the wonderful and unforgettable trip."
