Night Canoeing on Alqueva Lake

Alqueva is the biggest European Man made lake. A vast mass of water reaching as far as the eye can see, surrounded by an enviable natural landscape. Performed preferably on full moon nights, this sensory tour allows us to feel the life flow in a completely different way and enter a world where the sounds of nature speak louder.

You will get to see and feel:

After a very scenic drive through the Alentejo rolling hills you will visit 2 wineries. Get to know full bodied and spicy red wines, elegant whites with crispy acidity; both made out of native grapes or blended with international ones. All this will be experienced on an intimate atmosphere that only family run businesses can provide.

You will lunch on a tipycal restauran where you will enjoy the historical wines of Vidigueira still fermented on clay amphoraes.

The stress, routine, schedules, are words that are not part of our vocabulary when we meet at the river, on a kayak. The sounds of nature, the smells, the moon, the stars, become our fellow travelers.
