  • Coimbra: Mondego River Kayaking Tour

    1. Coimbra: Mondego River Kayaking Tour

    After meeting your tour guide, you will be provided with the kayaking equipment and some instructions. Then, set off from the Carvoeira dam on a kayaking tour with a total length of 18 km (11 miles).  You'll be kayaking through the natural Mondego river valley, surrounded by extensive forests. As you travel downriver, you will pass by the small villages of Ronqueira, Rebordosa, Louredo, Foz do Caneiro and Casal. This part of the river is full of small beaches where you can stop for a picnic or go to go for a swim. On the river beach of Palheiros, you'll find a small bar where you can buy an ice cream or a cold beer. The river usually has a light current, which makes the kayaking easy and accessible to all ages. Finish in Torres do Mondego, after 3-4 hours of kayaking and breaks along the way.

    Lovely experience, beautiful region and helpful staff/guides. It wasn’t quite as described however- starting at 10:15 despite being told to arrive early for a 9:45 start and running much longer than the details online said. The team were helpful with this but it felt quite disorganised.

There is a feeling of safety through the guidance at the front and back of the group. Smooth running of the day
