It's the perfect plan for families with children and all outdoors enthusiasts.

This one-day tour allows you to fully explore Alentejo’s outdoors, from the vast Alqueva lake to the landscapes of pastures and cork trees.

The tour starts with AlentejoBreak of Guardian Francisco Guerreiro.

It’s a round tour in a canoe, that departs from the marina near the wall of the Alqueva dam. On this tour, you'll learn about the history of the largest artificial lake in Europe, how it was built, and its impact in the region.

It also includes stops on the islands where you can have a picnic and enjoy unique moments together with Nature.

In the afternoon, you’ll be with Guardian Samuel Pacheco.

You’ll start with a tour at the Museu do Medronho, a permanent exhibition that tells the story of this plant, its fruit, and how it’s distilled.

It includes access to the exhibition, the tasting area, the museum store, and the distillery when it’s in full production.

Finally, go on a jeep tour to observe animals in their natural habitat.

We hope you have fun!
