River tube is an adventurous river activity where you sit on a buoy and use a paddle to control the trajectory of the buoy.
The challenge is to choose the best channel to descend the small rapids of the course, always with the help of an experienced and certified guide.
The unpredictability of the buoy when descending these small currents makes the experience even more fun and memorable. Halfway through the course, there is the opportunity to take a dip in the water!
On the calmer sections of the river, the buoys serve as a floating “armchair”. Excitement and laughter now give way to moments of relaxation and enjoying nature and the surrounding landscape.
The activity takes place in the Arouca Geopark. A by natural park declared a world heritage site by Unesco for its many geological peculiarities. For example, you can find ‘bubbling stones’ here, visit the largest waterfall in the Portuguese countryside and see thousand-year-old fossils.
The geopark is also home to Portugal’s longest suspension bridge. With 516 metres, it connects the banks of the Paiva gorge.
The activity takes about three and a half hours and afterwards you will be treated to a local snack and drink.
