If you’re a nature lover in The Algarve, Ria Formosa National Park should be at the top of your itinerary. During this 2-hour tour from Faro, you’ll explore the natural landscape on a ‘saveiro’ (a traditional painted boat) while learning about the myriad of bird species that inhabit the area. With luck, you’ll spot birds such as white storks, little egrets, spoonbills, and grey plover. This small-group tour is limited to 10 people to guarantee an intimate atmosphere.

TOUR SUMMARY

Considered one of the most important wetlands for aquatic birds in Portugal, during the tour we observe birds like the White Stork, Little Egret and the Spoonbill.

Waders are most abundant specially during winter, although birds like the Whimbrel, the Turnstone and the Grey Plover are a constant presence. The trip continues towards the islands of the Natural Park through oyster and clams farms.

Here you will have the opportunity to see one of the most important economical activities in the Algarve and also very interesting species such as the Black-tailed Godwit, the Oystercatcher and many others.

Towards the point where the lagoon meets the sea, we make a stop so you may enjoy this small paradise. This is an important reproduction area for the Little Tern and the Kentish Plover. During wintertime we often observe the Sandwich Tern and the Greater Flamingo.

During our trip back we will have many opportunities to observe other species while our boat sails calmly through the channels of this Natural Park in direction to the city of Faro.
