Full description
Meet your guide in Lisbon and drive to the village of Sesimbra to begin your kayaking adventure. Once you've gotten set up with all necessary equipment and listened to some brief instructions from your guide, paddle up the coast of Arrábida Natural Park, the area with the highest limestone cliffs in Europe. Learn about these incredible rock formations as you go. Over 18 million years old, the Arrábida limestone cliffs and the incredible calcarium landscape they form are the basis for the word "California," for which the U.S. state is named. With this landscape as your background, journey up the coast, marveling at the numerous pristine beaches tucked away in coves at the base of the cliffs. Spot caves and rocky passages as your guide regales you with local lore. Arrive at Ribeiro do Cavalo beach, awash in beautiful colors and hidden away in a narrow cove with picturesque rock formations. Enjoy the delicious local lunch that awaits you at the beach. Hop in the turquoise sea to cool off.

Our Instructor was Alfons, a very interesting nice guy who knows his stuff. The activity was awesome! The best decision. We really went exploring the coast, into the caves, saw some starfishs and had a few thrilling paths around rocks. Apparently sometimes you see dolphins. Overall I'm so glad we decided to do this activity with them. Some other kayaking tours were passing us and they just passed the coast no exploring. You can do nothing wrong with this one!

I hesitated a little at first because 80 € is a lot of money for me. But it was worth every penny! The team is super friendly & since I had booked the tour alone, I was in the same boat with the guide and was able to enjoy 1 to 1 support!
