Kayak tours

Tugar organises kayaking trips in several places in Portugal. For instance, you can kayak in Porto, the Arouca Geopark or in the Vale do Vouga. It is also possible to kayak down the Mondego River near Coimbra or off the coast of the Arrábida Natural Park.

The kayaking trips are suitable for both beginners and experienced kayakers. So you can enjoy guided tours of some of Portugal’s most beautiful rivers with the whole family.

Best time for kayaking in Portugal

The best time to kayak in Portugal depends on your personal preference and the type of adventure you are looking for. The summer months usually offer warm weather and pleasant water temperatures. This is ideal for relaxed kayaking trips on the river or along the coast.

However, if you are looking for a more challenging experience, the spring and autumn months are ideal. During these seasons, water levels are higher because of this, you can enjoy serene surroundings while also braving some rapids.

Other activities

Tugar has a wide range of outdoor activities besides kayaking.  You can draw up a whole programme of different activities in different places in Portugal. Tell us what you want to do and where, and we will make you a tailor-made proposal. We also arrange accommodation near the activities. Look for the different possibilities at Pick&Mix, Holiday Packs and Round Trip Porto – Lisbon.
