The Ria Formosa is a true sanctuary of nature and a privileged location to observe birds, by being a migratory corridor containing some of the last places in Europe for some birds to make nests. The Natural Park is visited annually by about 30 thousand birds from different species!
On this tour, we will be looking for the birds, and get to see a still ecological and sustainable salt economy - using traditional methods which are 2000 years old.
The importance of the salt pans as habitat for the aquatic birds has been recognized, as an attribute of basic importance in the conservation of rare and threatened species in the estuary.
There is still a small traditional fishing fleet and during this tour we will get to see some of the old fishing boats with their traditional colours and fishing artefacts.
Sign up for this relaxing, stimulating and educational adventure and you'll bring back photos and memories of the most beautiful landscape and wildlife, that will last a lifetime!
