This tour is a great introduction to the wonderful Ria Formosa, a magnificent and singular lacunar system, with an immense natural richness. This Natural Park is home for a wealth of animal and bird species which use it a breeding and nesting ground, with resident populations, like the pink flamingos, storks, kingfishers, and many other that use the area in the migration periods.
The local population living in the estuary area still maintain many of the old school traditional arts and crafts – like extraction of salt and gathering of shellfish and bivalves (mussels, oysters, clams, razor etc.).
In this tour we will go and discover the river and the estuary and the Ria Main channel.
Spend some time in close contact with nature, and let yourself be fascinated by the enchantment of the Ria’s sounds, forms and colours.
