A river with islands and places in the silence of wild nature
Meet the river full of life and history that divides and unites two countries at the same time: the Minho River. During this magnificent tour along the estuary you will be amazed by islands and stretches of sand where you can dip into the silence of wild nature. Get to know magical places covered in plentiful vegetation that provides natural habitat for birds such as an enormous capped heron or a colourful kingfisher. You can also watch semi-wild horses and otters that freely inhabit the riverbanks. It is also an opportunity to admire lovely fishing villages with their typical carochos (antique vessels for fishing lamprey, shad, sole and eel), moored to the piers.
The tours between Vila Nova de Cerveira, Caminha and Valença/Tui may last 1, 2 or 3 hours.
You may also rent a manned boat for either half or full day
(daily trips /morning and afternoon)
A very quiet and relaxing trip on an electro-solar, 100% ecological boat. Travel without the habitual noise and feel part of the wildlife. The trip is between Vila Nova de Cerveira and Lanhelas, with a visit to the green islands of Boega and Amores, the natural shelters of many birds including the grey heron, the black kite and the mallard. From the river, enjoy a unique view of the fishing villages of Gondarém and Lanhelas with their singular beauty and the typical “carochos” (ancient boats used for fishing) that are anchored there.
